PROTHROMBIN TIME, ACTIVATED PARTIAL THROMBOPLASTIN TIME AND PLATELET COUNT IN PATIENTS WITH DIABETES MELLITUS

Diabetes mellitus is a common disease in Libya, aimed to evaluate of Prothrombin Time, Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time and Thrombocytes among diabetic Patients and control . -This study includes 21 patients have diabetic and 49 persons as control. The blood coagulation markers, PT and aPTT were measured . Data analysis was performed using statistical package for social science (SPSS, version,22). Evaluation of patient’s data was performed using the t-test and Pearson correlation test. Results with p value >0.05 were considered as statistically insignificant. The results showed the mean of PT in diabetes was 15.190 in patients when was 15.428 in control, when the mean of APTT was 29.76 in diabetic patients, when was 28.69 in control. The mean Platelet count cell ×(× 109 /L) , 269.90 in diabetic patients and in control was 294.35 . From the present study it may concluded that diabetes mellitus had no effects on PT and APTT. Routine examinations of PT, INR, APTT and Thrombocyte count are important to assess coagulation impairment among diabetic patients to prevent any thromboembolic complication.

Keywords: Prothrombin Time, Thromboplastin Time, Diabetes Mellitus.
