Abstract

Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a determinant of activation and variability of platelets (PLT). The focus of this study was to to investigate MPV values in patients with and without metabolic syndrome (MS). It also evaluates the association between them. There are close connections among MPV, MS, and cardiometabolic risk. We compiled age, body mass index, blood cell counts, MPV, and other data of 59976 self-reported healthy volunteers (28428 male, 31548 female), 24.65% of who have MS. The mean age of the group was 48.21 years old. The data was grouped by sex and values of data between men and women groups were analyzed by independent sample's t-test. The relationship between sex and MS was evaluated by chi-square tests. Crude odd ratios of MS between MPV quartiles and 95% confidence intervals were analyzed by binary logistic regression in this study. We found women had higher levels of MPV (10.09 vs. 9.98, P < 0.01) and PLT (228.68 vs. 212.11, P < 0.01) than men. In females, the prevalence of MS was higher in low MPV group than in high MPV groups. The odds of having MS were significantly lower in higher MPV quartiles compared with MPV Quartile 1 in women (Adjusted OR < 1, P < 0.01). This study indicated that MS was inversely associated with MPV in females only.
