Detailed Description:
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is markedly increased in chronic kidney disease. There are a lot of risk factor, along with conventional risk factors. Serum onemtin-1 is a adipokine and suggested as a new marker for vascular disease.It has some anti-atherogenic properties. Studies investigating serum omentin-1 level have usually conducted in patients with diabetes mellitus.
