AbstractBackground: Diabetic patients have an increased risk of developing micro- vascular and macro vascular disease, and platelets may be involved as a causative agent with respect to altered platelet morphology and function. Aim of our study was to determine if platelets were activated in diabetes and to see if there was a difference in MPV in diabetics and non-diabetics.
Methodology: A cross sectional study had been conducted to study the impact of HBA1C on mean platelet volume in Type 2 diabetic patients in western Rajasthanattending the Medicine Outdoor and indoor at M.D.M. Hospital Jodhpur.
Conclusion: Platelets in Diabetes Mellitus become more reactive and agreeable and their Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) is increased. Increase in platelet size may be the one factor responsible for microvascular complication in Diabetes Mellitus. Hence, MPV could be a useful prognostic marker of micro vascular complications.
