Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major global public health problem. In the past, a relationship between TB and diabetes mellitus (DM) was recognized, and its importance was acknowledged through joint treatment clinics. However, this is rarely highlighted in current research or control priorities. This paper aims to evaluate the evidence for an association between these two diseases and association with blood group. Methods literature work on blood group and diabetes association with the tuberculosis. Assessed the quality according to criteria such as sample size, methods of selection of cases and summarizing the results in tabular form. Results A+ shows the highest percentage with EPTB i.e. 44.7% then with PTB i.e. 43.5%. B+ blood group also shows highest percentage with PTB i.e. 58.1% then with EPTB having percentage 32.3%. Conclusion: There is association between the TB and diabetes and TB and blood group. Further well-designed studies are needed to assess the magnitude precisely
