We thank Demirtas et al1 for their interest in our paper entitled “Association of Prediabetes With Higher Coronary Atherosclerotic Burden Among Patients With First Diagnosed Acute Coronary Syndrome”2 about the association of prediabetes with higher coronary atherosclerotic burden among patients with first diagnosed acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Demirtas et al1 expressed some concerns about whether this coronary atherosclerotic burden in patients with ACS is related to “diabesity” or was “obesity” dependent.
