The mean platelet volume is positively correlated with serum thyrotropin concentrations in a population of healthy subjects and subjects with unsuspected subclinical hypothyroidism.


BACKGROUND A possible prothrombotic effect of elevated thyrotropin (TSH) has been suggested. The mean platelet volume (MPV), which is used to measure the platelet size, can reflect platelet activity. Although limited and inconsistent data regarding the effects of thyroid function on the MPV are available from small-scale case-control studies, no study has… (More)
