Hello, folks. I have read something about pulmonary embolism. I know that this condition is pretty serious and that it can get life threatening. I would like to know if there is a relation between this condition and blood types. I think I have heard something like that. I would be very grateful for all your opinions.

Hi, there. I have heard something about that relation between blood types and pulmonary embolism. As far as I know, this condition is more typical for people with blood type A. I must admit that I don’t know the reason. I have searched on the internet and I haven’t found any data. Perhaps, someone here will know something more. I am sorry I don’t know details. I hope you will find the answer. Good luck! Bye!
