Abstract

CONCLUSIONS: 1. A significant number of outpatients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease were found to be undernourished. 2. The anthropometric measures of nutrition (Body Mass Index, Body muscle mass, Body fat stores) were related inversely with the degree of airway obstruction. 3. Measures of visceral protein stores (Serum prealbumin and Serum albumin) correlated inversely with severity of airway obstruction.
