Bradford Worrall, MD, professor of Neurogy, was recently interviewed by Sandy Hausman on Radio IQ to discuss how blood type may correlate with a patient’s risk of stroke. After reviewing records of nearly 17,000 stroke patients under the age of 60, Worrall says scientists discovered individuals with type A blood were at 16% higher risk for stroke, whereas those with type O were 12% less likely to suffer stroke.  Other factors that may impact risk include weight, blood pressure, diabetes, irregular heartbeat, and smoking.
