Background: Non- alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common liver disease associated with diabetes and cardiovascular risk. Platelets play a vital role in hemostasis and mean platelet volume (MPV) is a measure of average size and platelet activity. Larger platelets are highly thrombogenic. Increase in MPV is well documented in diabetes mellitus (DM). Hence, MPV can be used as simple and cost-effective hematological parameter for predicting cardiovascular events in metabolic syndrome.
