Table 8 Statistical analyses of membrane stiffness as measured by Young’s modulus values of the diabetic group and treated groups

From: Poorly controlled type 2 diabetes is accompanied by significant morphological and ultrastructural changes in both erythrocytes and in thrombin-generated fibrin: implications for diagnostics

Group Mean Young’s modulus SD P-value
