This study aimed to estimate the frequency of the SNPs (+45T>G and +276G>T) genotypes and investigate the association between the two SNPs and adiponectin concentration, metabolic parameters and risk of T2DM in the Bahraini population. We genotyped the two ADIPOQ SNPs in 140 unrelated T2DM patients and 66 nondiabetic controls using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay. Lipid profile was measured by enzymatic methods. Total serum adiponectin levels were measured by immunoassay. T2DM patients had reduced adiponectin levels compared with controls. +45T>G was more prevalent in patients than controls. The rare G allele of +45T>G occurred more frequently than the common Tallele in T2DM patients compared with controls, and was associated with lower serum adiponectin levels. There was no significant difference in allele and genotype frequencies of +276G>T between type T2DM patients and controls. There was no association between both SNPs and metabolic parameters.
