OBJECTIVE To examine the associations between fasting serum glucose, insulin concentrations, and insulin resistance and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in a population-based cohort of African American men. METHODS Using the Flint Men's Health Study (FMHS), we examined how fasting serum glucose and insulin concentrations and calculated Homeostasis Model of Assessment-Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR) related to burden and progression of clinical markers of BPH in African American men aged 40-79… CONTINUE READING
