Table 1 Demographics of healthy (n = 60) and type 2 diabetic (n = 53) volunteers

From: Platelet activity and hypercoagulation in type 2 diabetes

  Healthy individuals (n = 60) Diabetic individuals (n = 53) p-values
Gender Male (n = 22), Female (n = 38) Male (n = 27), Female (n = 26)  
Age (years) 59 ± 1.64 (n = 60) 64 ± 1.8 (n = 52)  
HbA1c (%) 5.2 ± 0.07 (n = 58) 8.9 ± 0.34 (n = 51) < 0.0001
  1. Data expressed as mean ± SEM. No significant correlation was observed between age and HbA1c between the healthy and diabetic samples (Pearson-test)
  2. Medications were recorded in conjugation with biomedical parameters, with the most prevalent amongst diabetes patients including Metformin® (n = 40) oral hypoglycaemic, simvastatin (n = 21) for cholesterol regulation, and Coversyl® (n = 13) for blood pressure regulation
