Abstract

We studied 42 patients with coronary artery disease to determine whether fasting blood glucose was related to platelet-dependent thrombosis. After adjusting for univariate predictors, a multivariate stepwise regression model showed that blood glucose was the best predictor of platelet-dependent thrombosis, followed by apolipoprotein B and intracellular magnesium levels. Our preliminary data support a lower optimal blood glucose threshold, a concept that should be prospectively tested in a larger sample of patients.
