Assessment of Hemoglobin, Total Leucocyte Count and Platelet Count in Type II Diabetes Patients and Non-Diabetes Group - A Case Control Study

Athira P R [4] | Ramjeela S [5]

Abstract: Diabetes mellitus is a global public health problem and associated with metabolic, cellular and blood disturbance leading to vascular complications. It is a metabolic disorder characterized by chronic hyperglycemia. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Hematological changes encountered in type II diabetes mellitus patients include changes in structure, function and metabolism of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and coagulation systems. These changes may cause anemia due to decreased hemoglobin level compared to non-diabetic individuals. Hematological parameters such as hemoglobin estimation, platelet count, total leucocyte count, differential count was performed on 30 diabetes and 30 non-diabetic (control) samples, which show variations in parameters such as hemoglobin, platelets, total leucocyte count and only a slight variation in differential count of type II diabetes patients.

Keywords: Diabetes mellitus, Total leucocyte count, Differential count, Hemoglobin
