As an A Positive donor you are important to maintaining the blood supply in our community. Annually more than 120,000 units of blood, platelets, and plasma are required to meet the needs of the hospitals we serve, and your blood type is critical in saving the lives of patients in your community.
Of the eight main blood types, people with type O have the lowest risk for heart disease. People with types AB and B are at the greatest risk, which could be a result of higher rates of inflammation for these blood types. A heart-healthy lifestyle is particularly important for people with types AB and B blood.
A-Personality People with blood type A are clever, passionate, sensitive, and cooperative. They are loyal, patient, and they love peace. Sometimes, they may be overly sensitive about different things. For instance, they care a lot about etiquette as well as social standards.
Thirty-four of every 100 people have A+. These are rare blood types and less than 10 percent of the population have this blood type. This blood type is acknowledged to be the “universal recipient” because AB+ people can accept red blood cells from any other blood type.
