Can parathyroid hormone be used as a biomarker for heart failure?
Heart Failure Reviews, 08/16/2012
Gandhi S et al. – Parathyroid hormone has been correlated with elevated brain natriuretic peptide levels, an established biomarker of heart failure severity. There are several limitations to the utilization of parathyroid hormone as a biomarker for heart failure, and further prospective studies need to be conducted to assess the value of multiple parathyroid hormone measurements over time and elucidate the role of parathyroid hormone in diastolic dysfunction.
