Prior studies report slightly lower prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels among obese men. To understand this effect, we investigated the association between PSA and blood HbA1c, C-peptide, leptin and adiponectin levels in African-American (AA) (n=121) and Caucasian (CA) (n=121) men. Among AA men, PSA levels decreased with increasing C-peptide levels (PSA=0.99, 0.93, 0.75 and 0.53 ng ml−1 across quartiles of C-peptide, respectively; Ptrend=0.005). Among CA men, PSA levels decreased with… CONTINUE READING
