Relationship between diabetes mellitus and hemostasis: a prothrombotic condition

Arpaci Dilek , Saglam Fatma , Ozdemir Didem , Ersoy Reyhan , Cakir Bekir

Background: Diabetes is very common disorder. Many studies have shown that patients with diabetes mellitus have incresing trombotic complications both arterial and venous trombosis. Bad control diabetes increases risk of trombosis. Recent reports have shown that shortened APTTs and increased fibrinogen indicate procoagulan situations. In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether chronic hyperglisemia or bad control diabetes causes trombosis which is reflected by shortened APTTs...
