In the present century, Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a major public health problem worldwide. There is an increased activity of platelets in diabetes mellitus, which in due course of time might lead to vascular complications. The present study was carried out with an aim to evaluate the Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) in patients with type II DM by comparing with a healthy control group. We also looked for any correlation between MPV and HbA1c, fasting blood glucose (FBS) and post prandial blood glucose (PPBS). A total of 60 cases were included in the study, among which 30 were diabetic patients and 30 were non-diabetic controls. A statistically significant positive Pearson correlation was seen between MPV and HbA1c levels (p-value= <0>

Keywords: MPV, Diabetes Mellitus, HbA1c, FBS, PPBS.
