From: Platelet activity and hypercoagulation in type 2 diabetes

  Healthy individuals

Diabetic individuals
(n = 53)
p-values
Gender Male (n = 22), Female (n = 38) Male (n = 27), Female (n = 26)  
Age (years) 59 ± 1.64

  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
