Although weight loss is a common problem in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the precise cause of malnutrition in COPD patients is not known. The purpose of this study was to measure and compare resting energy expenditure (REE) in stable undernourished and adequately nourished COPD. REE was measured in normal, adequately nourished, and undernourished COPD patients by indirect calorimetry and then compared to predicted basal metabolic rate (BMR) calculated from the Harris-Benedict… CONTINUE READING
