Abstract : Obesity is one of the most common silent diseases worldwide with a high prevalence in the Middle East, especially in Saudi Arabia. This study was designed to observe changes in serum proteins in obese and overweight blood donors based on body mass index. SAS 3 electrophoretic protein analysis was performed on donor blood samples and analyzed using serum protein gels. A total of 120 sera were analyzed from different blood groups and different body mass index (BMI) categories. A significant adverse effect of obesity on serum protein levels, specifically (P≤0.05) gamma globulin, in blood types was observed in O, A, and AB blood groups. These results indicate a relation between serum protein concentrations and obesity in the O, A and, AB blood groups. Further studies involving more participants, advanced techniques, and negative blood groups are needed to validate these findings
