Blood Clots After COVID Vaccine? This Is Who Is More Likely To Get Them
People with type O blood have the lowest risk of blood clots
As revealed by various studies, people with blood type O seem to be on the safer side of the spectrum when it comes to contracting COVID-19, as well as developing unwanted reactions such as blood clotting. As previously mentioned, the blood type B group has 55 more chances of experiencing deep venous thrombosis. But people with blood type A are also 44 percent more likely to experience blood clots and 50 percent more likely to develop deep venous thrombosis.
As a matter of fact, any non-O blood type reportedly has 44 percent higher risks of developing blood clots and 51 percent higher risks of deep venous thrombosis. More than that, people with non-O type blood have a 47 percent increased risk of developing a pulmonary embolism, which means a clot can travel through the blood to the lung.
“Our results are concordant with previous smaller observational reports suggesting an increased risk of thromboembolic events in non-O blood group individuals compared to individuals with blood group O,” according to the 2020 research. “In both blood groups A and B, we observed similar increased risks of developing thromboembolic events compared with blood group O.”
