Overweight and obese men have lower PSA values, even before they get prostate cancer
Date:2/19/2008

The prevalence of obesity in the United States has doubled in the past 15 years, Price said. Our study demonstrates yet another health danger that obesity poses. One in three Americans is obese, and a man who is 5'11" and weighs 215 pounds is considered obese.

The best advice clinicians can give their patients is to adopt healthier lifestyles, said Stephen Freedland, M.D., a urologist at Duke and the studys senior author. We tell patients to exercise three or four times a week, eat a healthier diet, high in vegetables and fruits, and keep getting screened, he said. However, to compensate for the lower PSA values, Freedland also recommends lowering the PSA threshold that is considered abnormal for obese men. If we dont do that, we may be missing cancers in obese men, which could lead to delayed diagnosis and poorer outcomes.
