    The aim of the present research was to study the role of adiponectin (ADPN) and Cystatin-C (Cys-C) levels in type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients with nephropathy complications, and their relation with the other clinical parameters. A total of 90 subjects that included 69 T2D nephropathy subjects, subdivided into three groups based on urinary albumin/creatinine ratio: group one=22 normo-albuminurea; group two=22 micro-albuminurea and group three=25 macro-albuminurea, compared with 21 healthy controls. Results showed statistically highly significant differences in the mean levels of ADPN and Cys-C on the overall ANOVA comparison of the studied groups (P<0.001). Also, the concentrations of ADPN and Cys-C were significantly increased in macro-albuminurea group compare to all 3 studied groups; micro-albuminurea (p<0.05), normo-albuminurea (p<0.01), and healthy controls (p<0.01) resp..
