Association of Adiposity Indices with Platelet Distribution Width and Mean Platelet Volume in Chinese Adults

Abstract

Hypoxia is a prominent characteristic of inflammatory tissue lesions. It can affect platelet function. While mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW) are sample platelet indices, they may reflect subcinical platelet activation. To investigated associations between adiposity indices and platelet indices, 17327 eligible individuals… (More)
