Blood types represent the chemicals on red blood cells, with A, B, AB, and O as common variations. Subtle genetic mutations within these types can lead to differences. A 2022 study revealed a connection between the A1 subgroup gene and early stroke onset.

Type A blood has a slightly increased stroke risk, but the researchers do not advocate for additional vigilance or screening for this group. Steven Kittner, a vascular neurologist, mentioned undiscovered reasons for the elevated risk, possibly related to blood-clotting mechanisms and other factors.
