Abstract Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is characterized by a chronic low-grade inflammatory state. SNP in Toll-like receptor (TLR) genes has been associated with impaired inflammatory response. We genotyped the TLR4/D299G, TLR4/T399I and TLR2/R753Q polymorphisms. Low frequency was found with no association with T2D, nevertheless the TLR2 SNP was associated with lower levels in HDL-cholesterol values. © 2011 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
