Background Altered circulating levels and genetic variation of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), has been associated with lower bone mineral density (BMD) values and incidence of osteoporosis in peritoneal dialysis patients, renal transplant recipients, and postmenopausal women. The potential relationship of circulating BNP with osteoporosis in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), however, has not yet been studied.
