T2Diabetes Mellitus, Vaspin, biochemical parameters, gender, BMI.


 Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disorder categorized by rise blood glucose with a disturbance in the use of carbohydrates, fats and proteins resulting from a deficiency in the secretion of the insulin or the action of insulin or both. The current study aimed to estimation of Vaspin and some biochemical parameters included insulin, fasting blood glucose(FBG), HbA1c, urea, creatinine, Triglyceride(TG), Total Cholesterol(TC), High-density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL) and Very low density lipoprotein (VLDL)in blood of type2 diabetic patients, and determining the change of the ratio in patients comparing with healthy people.The serum vaspin level in patients group was significantly lower than that of the healthy subjects (p<0.05). The serum insulin levels in patients were higher than of healthy subjects but without significant differences (p>0.05).  There were a significant difference of serum FBG, HbA1c and urea levels in patients compared to controls (p<0.05), while creatinine level was increased non significantly (p>0.05). The levels of TC, TG, LDL and VLDL were elevated significantly in patients when compared with controls (p<0.05), while HDL was diminished non significantly in patients compared to controls. There was no significant links between serum vaspin and insulin concentrations with FBG, HbA1C, CRP, urea, creatinine, TC, TG, LDL, HDL, and VLDL levels. Vaspin had lowest area under curve (AUC 393. ) and sensitivity ( 68.3) in ROC curve.
