The article is dedicated to the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and considers alternative causes of the disease, which can contribute to the onset and development of COPD along with already recognized and proven risk factors. The possible influence of nutritional status and metabolism on the formation of COPD phenotypes is discussed, as evidenced by the results of the presented studies, although the problem has not been sufficiently studied.
Keywords: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, risk factors, metabolism, nutritional status
