Blood groups A, B, AB at higher diabetes risk

Fri, Dec 19, 2014, 12:34 PM
London, Dec 19: Compared to individuals with blood type O, women with blood groups A, B and AB are at higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, a study has found.

"Our findings support a strong relationship between blood group and diabetes risk, with participants with the O blood type having a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes," said Guy Fagherazzi from Centre for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health in France.

For the study, the researchers collected data from more than 80,000 women in France followed between 1990 and 2008.

The study was published in the journal Diabetologia.
