Part of the Current Topics in Rehabilitation book series (CURRENT REHAB)


The nutritional complications in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often begin with weight loss, which occurs as the disease progresses. The weight loss not only results in malnutrition, but also contributes to deterioration of clinical and functional status, eventually leading to death.1,2
