Blood type and severity of symptoms

Having read the recent articles on type o blood clotting less google.co.uk/amp/s/www.medi...

I wondered what blood group everyone is. I am O positive and so far my symptoms have only been pregnancy/miscarriage related. So although upsetting relatively mild compared to others. I wondered if that was because my blood clots less and therefore lessens the effects of the antibodies.

Would love anyone else’s thoughts on this?

Would be interesting to hear if connection to blood group?

Looks like it’s not as simple a connection as I thought it might have been. But very interesting all the same.

I think if it were a simple connection then there would be more out there about it. I personally, in my non medical capacity, don’t think it makes a difference.

There’s always going to be people with varying levels of clotting who will fit in to different blood groups.

For me personally I’ve had TIAs, spinal cord infarct, bone clotting and a whole host of weird neurological symptoms and pain as well as numerous pregnancy losses and complications.

My blood group is A positive.

I would have thought so too but this research has only just been done which shocked me as I thought it would have been done years ago. Plus the research was only on people with no clotting issues.

Maybe it’s something they might look into in future.

O positive

2 misscarriages, 1 suspected TIA, triple positive.

My D dimer goes up and down but they can never locate a clot.
