Mean Platelet Volume is Associated with Glycaemic Control and Retinopathy in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.284
Pages: 
519–23
Synopsis: 
Mean platelet volume (MPV) is increased in diabetic patients. It is associated with the degree of glycaemic control. Moreover, MPV is higher in patients with diabetic retinopathy.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To investigate the relationship between mean platelet volume (MPV) and glycometabolic indices, to compare MPV according to HbA1c levels, and to analyse the difference in MPV between patients with and without microvascular complications.

Nephropathy Following Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Tunisian Population

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.053
Pages: 
881–9
Synopsis: 
This paper sought to determine the prevalence of nephropathy in Type 2 diabetic patients in Tunisia. Clinical and biochemical factors as well as chronic complications of the disease were determined in comparison to healthy subjects. Regular monitoring of Type 2 diabetic patients may help prevent or delay the onset of nephropathy.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The purpose was to compare the characteristics of Tunisians with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (Type 2 DM) and nephropathy with those without nephropathy. This study assessed whether or not phenotypic characteristics can predict nephropathy development in Type 2 DM. The prevalence of nephropathy in Tunisian Type 2 DM patients, and their relationship with clinical and biochemical factors as well as chronic complications of the disease were determined.
