Stroke is a fear of the elderly as it can cause a sudden blockage or burst of a blood vessel in the brain, causing paralysis of the body and body.
This is because it can cause you to live with a permanent disability for the rest of your life. The risk of stroke is even higher for people with heart disease, in particular. So people with heart disease need to be more careful.
Furthermore, a study recently published in “Neurology”, an American journal, found a relationship between stroke risk and blood type.
Which blood group is the most dangerous?
The study looked at the relationship between blood group and early onset stroke (EOS) that occurred before age 60.
The study was conducted in a survey method on 48 different studies and, through this, it can be seen that the study treated more than 16,000 adult stroke patients and 590,000 control groups without a history of stroke.
The above analysis found that people with group A blood had the highest risk of developing an early-onset stroke.
On the other hand, people with type O had the lowest risk of not only early-onset stroke, but also of stroke itself.
The study’s lead author, Dr. Mitchell of the University of Maryland, explains that different blood groups have different susceptibility to clots, which in turn leads to a different risk of early-onset stroke.
The blood group cannot be changed. However, blood type is only one of many factors that influence stroke risk.
Efforts to limit stroke risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, and light smoking are far more important.
This means that even if there are other blood groups that are more susceptible to stroke, there is no need to despair and focus more on improving your life.
Dr Sandra Narayanan of the Pacific Institute of Neuroscience has suggested methods such as smoking cessation, blood pressure control, Mediterranean diet, regular exercise and cholesterol level control to prevent stroke and prevent recurrence.
Dr Narayanan pointed out that 80% of strokes can be prevented if these methods are practiced consistently.
