Abstract
We thank Dr Kurt and colleagues for their comments and interest in our study. High red cell distribution width (RDW) is a new risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), including heart failure, atrial fibrillation and cardiovascular mortality [2-4]. In a recent paper in the Journal of Internal Medicine we reported that low RDW is associated with increased incidence of diabetes [1]. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
