Objectives: This study aimed to compare and correlate plasma and salivary levels of cardiometabolic risk biomarkers’ of pharmacotherapy (appraised using colorimetric assays), adiposity, and atherogenicity indices. Methods: 61 Nascent MetS subjects vs. 30 lean normoglycemic and healthy controls were recruited in Family Medicine outpatient clinics/Jordan University Hospital (a referral medical center). Fasting blood and saliva specimens were collected. Clinical and anthropometric variables were determined along with atherogenecity and adiposity indices. Results: Among nascent MetS (metabolic syndrome) recruits, almost half were normoglycemic, 43% were prediabetic and 8% were diabetic. Pronouncedly Glycemic (FPG and Alc) and lipid parameters (TG, HDL-C and non-HDL-C), adiposity indices (BMI, WHR, WtHR, Conicity-index, BAI, LAP, VAI) and atherogenicity indices (AIP, TC/HDL-C, LDL-C/HDL-C, non-HDL-C/HDL-C and TG/HDL-C) were higher in the nascent MetS group (P<0.05 vs. controls). Markedly among the plasma cardiometabolic risk biomarkers (P<0.05 vs. controls) in the nascent MetS group, adipolin, cathepsin S, ghrelin, irisin, LBP, leptin, and osteocalcin were higher but plasma FGF1 levels were oddly lower. Significantly (P<0.05 vs. controls) nascent MetS –linked salivary levels of adipolin and LBP were higher as opposed to the lower cathepsin S. Only osteocalcin, amongst 9 metabolic risk biomarkers studied, had remarkably significant correlation between plasma and saliva levels, in both total sample and MetS patients (P<0.05). Markedly in the nascent MetS only group, both plasma and salivary osteocalcin correlated with FPG and A1c (P<0.05); salivary osteocalcin correlated with BMI and LAP (P<0.05). Likewise, in the total sample plasma osteocalcin correlated significantly with BMI, BAI, WHt R, SBP, DBP, TG, LAP, VAI, TG/HDL-C and AIP (P<0.05), while salivary osteocalcin had substantial correlations only with FPG and A1c (P<0.05). Conclusion: Association of nascent MetS-related plasma and salivary osteocalcin levels and clinical characteristics and indices propagate salivary osteocalcin as a non-invasive marker for clinical control of MetS-/preDM.
