PURPOSE: Despite high prevalence of weight loss in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the recent 2011 COPD management guidelines do not include an index measuring the nutritional status. Fat free mass index (FFMI) can accurately determine the nutritional status of patients and may be closely correlated with the COPD severity. We aimed to determine the nutritional status evaluated by FFMI according to the 2011 GOLD levels in stable COPD patients and the association between nutritional status and respiratory symptoms, exercise capacity, and respiratory muscle function.
