Abstract

In this community-based cohort of 5861 individuals followed for median 7.2 years, the discriminatory ability of NT-proBNP alone in predicting mortality was similar to that of multiple conventional markers of risk in people without diabetes. In people with diabetes, NT-proBNP alone discriminated risk of mortality better than conventional risk factors.
