Welcome to Health Care Magic Forum:
Recent research shows that Mean Plate Volume is higher in patients who already had Stroke
and heart attacks. Evidence also say that we can prognosticate further attacks by measuring MPV.
There is one more study which shows MPV is an independent predictor of the risk of stroke among individuals with a history of stroke or transient ischemic attack
The bottom line is, there is evidence that it is a relative risk
factor. You can compare it with obesity. Like obesity is a risk factor for heart disease
, Fat Platelets (Large size platelets) are risk factors for stroke and heart disease.
But what can we do to prevent stroke and heart disease? Preventive and curative measures are same. The protocols not changed.
