Background: Diabetes is a chronic and debilitating disease that has several factors that affect its occurrence, so trying to identify these factors and modify them is worth considering. In this regard, the present study was conducted to determine the relationship between different blood groups and Rh with diabetes mellitus type 2.
Materials and Methods: This study is a case-control study that was conducted in Khorramabad city on a total of 620 diabetic and non-diabetic individuals who were randomly selected. Study data including demographic variables and blood type and Rh were extracted through files registered in health centers. SPSS23 software was used to collect data. Frequency tables of chi-square, t-test and logistic regression were used to analyze the data.
Results: The mean age of the subjects was 49.25±12.4. 59.2% of the subjects were female. In this study, no significant difference was observed between the two groups in terms of age and gender. There was a significant difference between diabetic and non-diabetic individuals in family history, BMI and hypertension. There was no difference in the type of Rh between the two groups in terms of blood and Rh groups, but in the case of blood groups, blood group A had a higher percentage compared to the control group. While there was no obvious difference between other blood groups in the case and control groups.
Conclusion: According to our results, people with blood type A, as well as people with high BMI, high blood pressure and a family history of diabetes, are at higher risk for developing the disease. Necessary measures to prevent the disease for these people at risk should be taken to reduce the prevalence of the disease in society.
