Core Tip Atherosclerosis is a leading worldwide cause of morbidity and mortality. The association between cystatin C (CysC) and atherosclerotic disorders remains controversial, and the cut-off value of CysC for atherosclerosis is unknown. Our study revealed that the optimal CysC cut-off point was 0.73 mg/L by receiver operating characteristic curve analysis. Higher CysC levels were significantly and independently correlated with an maximum carotid plaque thickness of ≥ 2 mm in multivariate analysis. Our data indicate that CysC could be a useful laboratory tool for predicting atherosclerosis during health checkups.
