Introduction: The main aim of our study was to assess the role of prostate specific antigen in Indian males and to determine its correlation with insulin resistance in metabolic syndrome.
Materials and Methods: For this study, 62 male subjects of 40-65 years having metabolic syndrome were selected. Body mass index, fasting blood sugar, serum prostate specific antigen, serum fasting insulin and insulin resistance were analyzed using multivariate regression analysis and Annova test.
Results and Conclusion: There was no statistically significant difference between body mass index and prostate specific antigen, body mass index and insulin resistance, prostate specific antigen and triglyceride, prostate specific antigen and high density lipoprotein, and prostate specific antigen and fasting blood sugar.
Keywords: Body mass index, Insulin resistance and Obesity, Prostate specific antigen.
