Abstract

Background and objective: Diabetes mellitus (DM) has been considered as a 'prothrombotic state' with enhanced platelet reactivity. Mean platelet volume (MPV) has been evaluated in DM and correlated with retinopathy. This study was aimed at evaluating platelet indices in diabetic versus non-diabetic patients and assessing their utility as indicators of presence of complications in patients with DM. Methods: This study included 75 subjects with DM (50 with one or more microvascular complications) and 50 non-selected patients from the hospital as controls. Anticoagulated blood (ethylene diamine tetracetic acid) was collected and analyzed in an automated blood cell counter for platelet count and indices [MPV, platelet distribution width (PDW) and platelet-large cell ratio]. Results: MPV, PDW and platelet-large cell ratio were all significantly higher in diabetic patients compared to the control subjects (P
