Is there any effect of the treatment on mean platelet volume in patients with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism?

Okuturlar Yildiz , Soylu Aliye , Tekin Enver , Mert Meral , Harmankaya Ozlem , Kumbasar Abdulbaki

Introduction: Mean platelet volume (MPV) which is part of a complete blood count measures the platelet size. There are many studies in the literature that it is an indicator of platelet function in thrombotic and inflammatory diseases. However, the number of studies about changes in MPV after treatment in thyroid disease is very limited. In this study, we aimed to reveal the MPV change with treatment in patients with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.Ma...
