Table-II: Cutoff values of RDWand RDWI for iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and beta-thalassemia trait (ssTT).
RDWI showed better discriminative effect between ssTT and IDA, as this index had both sensitivity and specificity more than 85% in detection of ssTT and IDA.
Red cell distribution width (RDW) is provided in CBCs by the automated analyzers and can be utilized in the association with a derived value RDWI to distinguish IDA and ssTT.
33 suggested that Green and King's index is the best discriminator, but in our study it was the second best index after RDWI.
Patient groups were evaluated according to RBC, RDW, MI, S&L, E&F, SI, G&K, RDWI, and Ricerca index.
In our study, Youden's index of RBC count and RDWI were the highest and they were the most reliable discrimination indices in differentiating [beta]-TT from IDA in patients older than 10 years.
