Introduction: Low testosterone concentrations have been reported in type 2 diabetes (T2D) and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Contrary to diabetes, the prevalence of CAD is lower in Afro-Caribbean (AC) from French West Indies islands than in people from mainland France. However, CAD is a frequent complication of T2D. To evaluate this paradoxical situation, we investigated the prevalence of sex steroids deficiency that might be associated with CAD in AC men with T2D and the relationships with metabolic parameters.
