The ABO blood collections frequently related by numerous illnesses through one blood group added repeatedly grown by the patients of a specific disease. The aim of this learning is to regulate the association among ABO & Rhesus blood groups and Type-2 diabetes mellitus in the local populace of Visakhapatnam. The present study is a hospital depended on the cross-sectional, case-control study, directed over a phase of six months in out-patient units of endocrinology department of a tertiary care hospital. An entire of 332 patients by Type-II DM and 200 age and sex harmonized healthy controls were included. In cases group, out of 332 patients 174(52.4%) were males (vs 113(56.5%) controls) and 158(47.5%) were females (vs 87(43.5%) controls) and about 289(87.04%) patients were found to be Rh+ve type (vs 178(89%) controls). About 91(27.4%) were found to be B-positive (vs 28(14%) controls), 87(26.2%) were O-positive (vs 69( 34.5%) controls ), and 73(22%) are A-positive (vs 62(31%) controls), 38(11.45%) are AB-positive (vs 19(9.5%) controls) , 14(4.2%) are O-negative(vs 3(1.5%) controls), 11(3.3%) are A-negative(vs 10(5%) controls),10(3.0%) are AB-negative(vs 3(1.5%) controls), 8(2.4%) are B-negative(vs 6(3%) controls).
