The limitation of the present study was, the patients were receiving diuretics, beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors spironolactone therapy, with different dosages and we did not take the medication and obesity into account, some patients have low levels of NT-pro BNP, the suggested explanation could be that they respond to the optimal therapy; another explanation is that patients with end stage HF may have low natriuretic peptides (NP) levels because the ability of their ventricles to release NP may have become exhausted.
