  1. Values were measured from fasted plasma and are shown as averages ± SEM for each group for CA (Caucasian American) and AA (African American), where * p < 0.05 and ** p < 0.01 for comparison with respect to non-obese subjects or a p < 0.05 with respect to obese non diabetic subjects within each race. An effect of race was demonstrated where p < 0.05 or †† p < 0.01.
