Prediction of Microvascular Complications with Mean Platelet Volume in T2DM Patients

Prachi Jain

Diabetes is most common metabolic disorder characterized by chronic hyperglycemia associated with long-term macro and micro-vascular complications involving the blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. It has become a global health crisis with 422 million people suffering from it and its incidence is rapidly rising in middle-and low-income countries. Diabetes-related complications are responsible for morbidity. Many people have them at the time of diagnosis. DM is characterized by prothrombotic state of platelets due to the persistent hyperglycemia and insulin resistance.
