Özet

Objective: Chemerin is a novel adipokine that is correlated with adipocyte differentiation, glucose metabolism, and inflammation. We aimed to investigate the relation between serum chemerin level and subclinical atherosclerosis markers as exemplified by brachial artery pulse wave velocity (baPWV), carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), epicardial fat thickness (EFT), and carotid plaque presence in diabetes and prediabetes.
