Amal S. Elhassade*, Fadllal Elhosni and Hussam Ziad

ABSTRACT

Diabetes mellitus is (DM) a global public health problem and a complex disease characterized by chronic hyperglycemia that leads to long-term macrovascular and microvascular complications. Platelets play major role in integrity of normal hemostasis, and mean platelet volume (MPV) is an indicator for its function. Objective: The present study was conducted to study the effect of diabetes mellitus on platelets count. Material and method: A sample of 100 person were selected, 50 patients suffering from DM, from Al-wahda teaching hospital, Derna-Libya. At the same time a group of 50 randomly selected healthy adults were invited to participate in the study as control group. Result: Mean levels of platelets count were significantly lower in diabetic (145.04 ± 60 × 109/l) as compared with healthy control ( 291±38 × 109/l), P ≥ 0.05.
