Abstract

Objectives: Patients with type 2 diabetes have lower intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) levels when compared with non-diabetics. Patients with metabolic syndrome (MetSyn) have increased iPTH levels than normal subjects. We hypothesized that patients with type 2 diabetes and MetSyn might have higher iPTH levels as compared with those without MetSyn.
