I'm not an expert or a dietitian, but from everything I've read, blood type doesn't have anything to do with the way your body processes nutrients. All of us digest food the same way, and it all becomes energy, muscle, fat, etc. the same way. From what I can tell, the Blood Type Diet people are just another fad diet that will disappear before too long.
Regarding your cholesterol, triglyceridges, etc: cholesterol and (most) saturated fat come from animal products. If you want to lower your cholesterol and saturated fat intake, it makes sense to lower the amount of animal products in your diet. Since you are doing well on a plant-based diet, I think the evidence is clear – YOU are the answer! Keep on doing what you've been doing!
