Dr. Peersab M Pinjar | Dr. Jithin George [2] | Dr. Georgin Mani

Abstract: Background Diabetes is one of the most life style related disorders in the world. Red cell distribution width is a marker of Red cell volume variability. Methods and results retrospective study of 100 diabetic patients. Correlation between RDW, HbA1c are assessed among males and females. In the study, the relationship between RDW and HBA1C, RDW and mean glucose were found to be proportional with a significant p value. RDW value was more in females compared to males. But the relationship between RDW and creatinine, RDW and WBC counts, RDW and duration of diabetes were not statistically insignificant. Conclusion RDW is associated with glycemic control of the patient. Also RDW was found to be more in female population.
