    What Your Blood Type Says About Your Life Span



    People whose blood type is A, B or AB have an increased risk of heart disease and shorter life spans than people who have type O blood, according to a new study.

    But that doesn’t mean people with blood types other than O should be overly concerned, because heart disease risk and life span are influenced by multiple factors, including exercise and overall health, experts said ...

    Do You Really Have High Blood Pressure?


    White Coat Hypertension: It's Real

    "But it was fine when I took it at home," is what office nurses often hear as they unwrap the blood pressure cuff from a patient's arm. "White-coat hypertension" is no myth, says Mary Bauman, a physician on staff with Intergris Family Care Central in Oklahoma City. "If you run up the stairs to the doctor's office, if you're in traffic and you're trying to get there, your blood pressure may be elevated," Bauman says. "Everybody's blood pressure goes up at certain times. It's supposed to."

    High readings during checkups may not match follow-up home readings that turn out to be fine. "No doctor wants to change people's medication based on one reading in the office," Bauman says. Masked hypertension -- where blood pressure is always lower in the doctor's official -- is the opposite effect that occurs for some patients, she notes. Taking a second or third reading during the visit may help "somewhat," she says.

    "What we're really interested in -- is your blood pressure elevated most of the time?" Bauman says. "That's chronic wear and tear on your blood vessels, and it promotes atherosclerosis and increases your risk of heart attack and stroke."

    Blood type can affect brain function

    A new study finds that people with AB blood type are at higher risk for age-related cognitive decline
    ANDREA ANDERSON AND VICTORIA STERN, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN


    Blood type may affect brain function as we age, according to a new large, long-term study. People with the rare AB blood type, present in less than 10 percent of the population, have a higher than usual risk of cognitive problems as they age.

    University of Vermont hematologist Mary Cushman and her colleagues used data from a national study called REGARDS, which has been following 30,239 African-American and Caucasian individuals older than 45 since 2007. The aim of the study is to understand the heavy stroke toll seen in the southeastern U.S., particularly among African-Americans. Cushman’s team focused on information collected twice yearly via phone surveys that evaluate cognitive skills such as learning, short-term memory and executive function. The researchers zeroed in on 495 individuals who showed significant declines on at least two of the three phone survey tests ...

    Is This The ‘Best’ Blood Type?



    ... But emerging research suggests that while your diet needn’t be so closely linked with your blood, your overall health may be. In fact, one blood type continues to emerge above the rest: blood type O.

    Research suggests that people with type O blood are at a lower risk for cardiovascular health issues like stroke and heart attack. A new study from the Karolinska Institute shows that people with type O blood are less likely to die from malaria. Science suggests that people with AB blood are at an increased risk of memory issues down the line compared to people with O blood. And other research pins people with O blood as less likely to experience certain kinds of cancer, like pancreatic and gastric cancers ...

    Study Uncovers Link Between Blood Type And Risk Of Cognitive Decline


    Many factors impact brain health, from genetics to sleep quality. And now a new landmark study has found that blood type also may affect cognitive function as we age.

    Indeed, researchers at the University of Sheffield in England found that those with an O blood type have more gray matter in their brain, which helps ward off diseases such as Alzheimer's, than those with A, B or AB blood types ...

    Blood Type Diet: Is it Good (or Bad) for You?


    ... Eating foods based on your blood type encourages people to eat or avoid foods depending on which type you have. The blood type diet is nothing new, in fact it was made popular in 2013 by naturopathic physician Peter D’Adamo and still continues to make headlines. Although there isn’t extensive scientific evidence, we don’t need to ignore this notion altogether ...
