, Studies have shown that the larger the number of platelet volume, or in the blood platelets and the larger, the greater the risk of dangerous blood clot formation. Qayyum finds that the number of platelets in a given amount of blood and the size of these plates vary from person to person in the same way as height, weight and eye color are different characteristics. He said, the search for genes but variation is a potentially fruitful line of research.

Qayyum warns that it is assumed that many more genes involved in platelet function, remain unknown.Platelets are produced in the bone marrow cells, smaller than red or white blood cells , which promote the clotting of blood. During clotting time is critical to stop bleeding after an injury, it can also cause damage by clumps of blood cells, the blood vessels the the heart, brain and other organs, cutting off blood flow.No, of insulin not lead to greater risk of heart linked, stroke, cancer.
