Abstract Relationship between high-sensitivity C-reactive protein hs-CRP and adiposity by diabetes status and gender in Cuban-Americans with and without type 2 diabetes T2D was studied. Adult subjects, 226 females, 129 males participated in a case control, single time point study. Subjects with T2D were older, had higher waist circumference WC and body mass index BMI. WC and BMI were associated with ln hs-CRP P 0.001. An interaction with diabetes status was found for BMI P = 0.037. Gender showed a strong relationship with ln hs-CRP P 0.001, which was moderated by diabetes status. Only males without diabetes exhibited a significant relationship for both WC and BMI with ln hs-CRP. In this sample of Cuban-Americans, WC and BMI had stronger associations with ln hs-CRP but not with diabetes status. Obesity prevention and controlling for CRP levels may be necessary to eliminate its contributions to develop diabetes and cardiovascular disease CVD. View Full-Text
