BACKGROUND 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) may be associated with lung function through modulation of pulmonary protease-antiprotease imbalance, airway inflammation, lung remodelling and oxidative stress. We examined the association of plasma 25(OH)D levels with lung function, lung function decline and risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS Plasma 25(OH)D was measured in 10 116 participants in the Copenhagen City Heart Study and in 8391 participants in the Copenhagen… CONTINUE READING
