Blood rheology as a mirror of endocrine and metabolic homeostasis in health and disease1

Abstract : Rheological properties of plasma and blood cells are markedly influenced by the surrounding milieu: physicochemical factors, metabolism and hormones. Acid/base status, osmolality, lipid status, plasma protein pattern, oxidative stress induced by increased free radicals production, endothelium-derived factors such as nitric oxide (NO), achidonic acid derivatives modulate both red blood cell (RBC) and white cell mechanics. Therefore, regulatory axes involving liver, endothelium, kidney, pancreas, adrenal gland, endocrine heart, adipose tissue, pituitary gland, and surely other tissues play important roles in the regulation of blood fluidity. A comprehensive picture of all this complex network of regulatory loops is still unavailable but current progress of knowledge suggest that some attempts can currently be made.
