Association between heart failure and sarcopenia has been reported, however, the association between sarcopenia and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is unclear. Thus, we investigated the association between sarcopenia and BNP in type 2 diabetic patients without heart failure. In this cross-sectional study, skeletal muscle mass index (SMI, kg/m 2) was calculated as appendicular muscle mass, measured by bioimpedance analyzer, by the square of the height. Sarcopenia was defined as having both handgrip strength of< 26 kg for …
