abdominal obesity, with levels increasing when they begin to decrease in weight [ 10 ]. Serum adiponectin levels were associated with age, sex (lower in men, possibly due to androgenic effect) and smoker status. The role of inflammation in the progression of atherosclerosis and the susceptibility of cardiovascular events is well known. Of the multitude of inflammation biomarkers that have been studied, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) received the most attention due to its utility in cardiovascular risk screening and classification [ 11 ]. Plasma reactive CRP

Introduction With the effective control of communicable diseases over the past several decades, chronic non-communicable diseases have become the greatest threat to human health [1]. These diseases are associated with multiple risk factors, which themselves are correlated with unhealthy lifestyles. It is well known that unhealthy lifestyle factors increase the risks of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes [2, 3]. High sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is a marker of inflammation, which plays an important role in cardiovascular disease mechanisms [4
