Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to determine if there is a seasonal variation in the widely used heart failure marker NT-proBNP. The study included all primary care requests for NT-proBNP in the county of Uppsala, Sweden, between January 2007 and December 2015. For seasonal variation, the NT-proBNP results for individual months were compared. The NT-proBNP values were highest in July to September, but there was also a minor peak in December-January. In conclusion, a seasonal periodicity for NT-proBNP was demonstrated in primary care patients. The data could be useful for practitioners for evaluation of NT-proBNP results and monitoring of patients with heart failure.
