Keywords:copeptin; BMI; Obesity; Lipid profile; Kirkuk
In this Case-Control Study, One hundred thirty six adult subjects with obesity were separated to take part
in the current research. At the Kirkuk General Hospital in Kirkuk City- Iraq, Applying this study had done
for the duration of the 16th of February to the end of June 2020 Adult subjects with obesity outpatient

didn’t assembly the inclusion criteria and 20 adult persons refuse to participate in this study because of the
in agreement of their people. Blood sample were collected from each adult person for determination of
copepetin, lipid profile and blood sugar determination. The study revealed that the mean of copeptin was
higher in obese group as compared with healthy control group (166.4±81.8 vs. 35.01±12.3 pg/ml). The
study showed a significant difference between obese and the control group regarding fasting blood sugar
(FBS) (119.3±12.5 and 98.2±11.6 mg/dl) respectively. The study showed that, the mean serum triglyceride

(61.44 ±7.63 mg/dl). The study showed that, the highest mean of serum LDL and VLDL was recorded in
obese group as compared with healthy control group. The study showed negative correlation between serum
copeptin and FBS in obese individuals. It was concluded that, Serum copeptin was significantly higher in
