Platelet aggregate ratio in diabetes mellitus

Platelet aggregate ratio in diabetes mellitus

Acta Haematologica 67(3): 222-224

Because patients with diabetes mellitus are at increased risk or vascular disease, it was suspected that they might have increased circulating platelet aggregates. The platelet aggregate ratio of 30 diabetic patients (15 diagnosed before 30 yr of age and classified as juvenile-onset and 15 diagnosed after 30 yr of age and classified as adult-onset) and 30 controls was determined. The mean platelet aggregate ratio of the juvenile-onset diabetics was 0.75 and of their controls was 0.91 (P < 0.02) confirming the hypothesis in this subgroup. However, the mean platelet aggregate ratio of the adult-onset diabetics was not lower than that of their controls.
