PURPOSE: To evaluate the sequential changes of nutritional markers including cholesterol and visceral fat area according to NTM pulmonary disease course
METHODS: An age-, sex- and number of comorbid disease- matched case control analysis of 71 patients with NTM pulmonary disease and 284 Korean national survey participants was performed. After retrospective analysis of medical records of 114 patients with NTM pulmonary disease admitted to our hospitals between October 2007 and June 2014, 71 patients with NTM pulmonary disease were included in this study. The control group was randomly recruited from subjects who participated in the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (KAHANES) V study from 2011 to 2012. KAHANES is a nationwide survey to evaluate the health and nutritional status of Korean population (https://knhanes.cdc.go.kr/knhanes).
