TORRES-SANCHEZ, Irene et al. Endocrinometabolic disorders in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2013, vol.28, n.4, pp.1022-1030. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by the presence of chronic airflow obstruction and associated endocrinometabolic disorders, which usually worsen the clinic and prognostic of the patients. Therefore, in-depth knowledge of these prevalent disorders in patients with COPD is relevant to develop preventive measures and early detection. Purpose: To analyze the prevalence of endocrinometabolic diseases that occur in COPD subjects and their related risk factors. Methods: We carried out a bibliographic search of the bibliographic resources of the last 10 years, including PubMed, Scopus and ScienceDirect databases. Words used were: "endocrine metabolic disorders AND COPD", "endocrine disorders AND COPD" and "metabolic disorders AND COPD". The bibliographical analysis was made in two steps. During the first phase, we excluded those articles in which the title or their content did not correspond with the objective settled; during the second phase, we deleted all the references duplicated in both databases. Finally, 17 articles after full-text critical appraisal were maintained. Results: After reviewing the articles, we found a significant relationship between diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, obesity, osteoporosis, hypogonadism and COPD. Different authors have reported a higher prevalence of these comorbidities, influencing the development of COPD. Conclusions: Due to the high prevalence and association with COPD, these comorbidities have to be considered by the health professionals related to the COPD patients. Better understanding of the endocrinometabolic disorders related to COPD can influence the treatment and the outcome of patients.
