  title={The Relationship between Vitamin B 12 Deficiency and Red Cell Distribution Width-Platelet Ratio},
  author={Nigar Yilmaz and Mustafa Abdullah Yilmaz},
Objective: We aimed to investigate the relationship between vitamin B12 deficiency and red cell distribution widthplatelet ratio (RPR), and the variations in the parameters on vitamin B12 treatment. Methods: One hundred fifty-four patients with untreated vitamin B12 deficiency (56% men, mean age: 50 ± 12.7 years) (untreated group), 86 patients with vitamin B12 deficiency (62% men, mean age: 42 ± 20.7 years) on vitamin B12 treatment (treated group), and 92 ageand sex-matched control group (54… Expand

Vitamin B12 deficiency in India: mean corpuscular volume is an unreliable screening parameter.
MCV is unreliable as a screening parameter for the presumed diagnosis of macrocytic anaemia, which is associated with vitamin B12 deficiency, and is often diagnosed during the work-up for a haematological disorder or for neurological symptoms. Expand
High red blood cell distribution width is closely associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Patients with NAFLD were more likely to have high levels of red blood cell distribution width (RDW), and this association might provide a rationale to introduce the easy, inexpensive RDW in algorithms forNAFLD risk prediction. Expand
Subclinical Vitamin B12 Deficiency and Heart Rate Variability Across Life Cycle.
OBJECTIVES The present study aimed to evaluate association between plasma vitamin B12 and heart rate variability in clusters of population of various ages across life cycle. METHODS 47 healthyExpand
B12 deficiency increases with age in hospitalized patients: a study on 14,904 samples.
In inpatients, functional B12 deficiency and functional folate deficiency increase with age and are not associated with anemia or macrocytosis. Expand
Can Platelet Count and Platelet Indices Predict the Risk and the Prognosis of Preeclampsia?
It is suggested that the increasing platelet turnover in PE causes a decrease in the PC, an increase of MPV value and especially a decreases in PC/MPV ratio, pointing that these parameters may play an important role in predicting the risk of PE while they have no role on predicting the severity of PE.

Relation between red cell distribution width with echocardiographic parameters in patients with acute heart failure.
A novel relation between higher levels of RDW and elevated E/E' in patients with AHF is found, raising the possibility that a simple marker, RDW may be associated with elevated LVFP in patientswith AHF. Expand
Red cell distribution width and mean platelet volume in patients with irritable bowel syndrome
The RDW and MPV should be laboratory indicators of IBS and more prospective studies with larger cohorts are needed to confirm the results. Expand
Serum zinc levels in patients with iron deficiency anemia and its association with symptoms of iron deficiency anemia
Zinc is a trace element that functions in several processes in the body, and zinc deficiency aggravates IDA symptoms, so measurement of zinc levels and supplementation if necessary should be considered for IDA patients. Expand
Red cell distribution width and mortality in older adults: a meta-analysis.
RDW is a routinely reported test that is a powerful predictor of mortality in community-dwelling older adults with and without age-associated diseases and the biologic mechanisms underlying this association merit investigation. Expand
The Changes in Mean Platelet Volume after Using of Antiplatelet Drugs in Acute Ischemic Stroke: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
Every type of antiplatelet drugs included in this study reduced MPV NIHSS, and mRS in acute non-cardioembolic stroke patients and clopidogrel improved NIHSS the most. Expand
