Background: Diabetes is a chronic and debilitating disease caused by several factors that need to be identified and modified. In this regard, the present study was conducted to determine the relationship between different blood groups and Rh with diabetes mellitus type 2. Materials and Methods: The present study is a case-control. A total of 620 diabetic and non-diabetic individuals were randomly selected in Khorramabad. Necessary data on demographic variables, blood type, and Rh were extracted through files registered in health centers. Data were collected using SPSS software (Version 23). Frequency tables of Chi-square, t-test, and logistic regression were used to analyze the data. Results: The mean age of the participants was 49.25±12.4. Women represented 59.2% of the participants. In this study, no significant difference was observed between the two groups in terms of age and gender. Family history, BMI, and hypertension were significantly different in diabetic and non-diabetic individuals. There was no difference in blood type and Rh between the two groups in terms of Rh type. But blood group A had a higher percentage compared to the control group in the case of blood groups. While there was no obvious difference between other blood groups in the case and control groups. Conclusion: According to the results of the present study, people with blood type A are at higher risk for developing the disease such as people with high BMI, high blood pressure, and a family history of diabetes. Necessary measures should be taken to reduce the prevalence of the disease in society. Keywords: Blood and Rh groups, Case-control, Diabetes.
