Objective: Young adults with type 2 diabetes were demonstrated to have increased cardiovascular disease risk. Fetuin-A levels are associated with insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, hepatosteatosis, subclinical inflammation and increased cardiovascular risk. Apolipoprotein (Apo) B/Apo A1 ratio is a well-defined cardiovascular risk assessment marker. In this study, we aimed to investigate the potential role of Fetuin-A in demonstrating cardiovascular disease risk in young adults with type 2 diabetes.
