Diabetes mellitus is a heterogeneous metabolic condition defined by insulin secretion: hyperglycemia deficiency, or impt residues of amino acids. β-Sal promotes reproduction, vascular smooth movement of muscle cells (VSMC), vascular brosis, and development of VSMC foam cells. The present study is aimed to evalution the relation of β-salusin (β-Sal) with some anthropometric measurements (AMs) and other parameter in Iraqi type2 diabetics (T2DM) women. This study included 60 T2DM women, were collected from the area Al-Fallujah and Al-Ramadi in al-Anbar governorate, and collection of 24 healthy women as a control, patients and healthy were have the same age. The period was from August 2019 to October 2019. Results showed concentration of β-sal is high in the patients withT2DM, itgives an important indication that the immune response in diabetics is high. The analysis also disclosed that the level of β-sal can give an impression on the disease is progressing. In addition to this research, it promotes the use of W / H and W / T to determine the risk of developing T2DM in women as they offer a clear and accurate method of assessment.
