Diabetes Mellitus (DM) commonly referred as a Diabetes; a clinical syndrome characterized by an increase in blood glucose concentration (hyperglycaemia). The symptom of hyperglycaemia includes polyuria, polydipsia, polyphagia, weight loss, tiredness, and blurred vision.

These complications are the major cause for increase rate of morbidity, mortality and decrease quality of life Platelet plays an essential function in normal haemostasis which serves to maintain the integrity of the vasculature upon injury.
