Co-Morbidities of COPD

Additional pulmonay comorbidities impact the anticipation of patients with COPD. Tobacco smoking is a typical hazard factor for many comorbidities, including coronary illness, heart failure and lung malignancy. Comorbidities, for example, pulmonary artery disease and malnutrition are specifically caused by COPD, while others, such as fundamental venous thromboembolism, anxiety, depression, osteoporosis, obesity, metabolic disorder, diabetes, sleep disturbance and anaemia, have no clear physiopathological association with COPD. The shared conviction between the majority of these extrapulmonary signs is chronic systemic inflammation. These diseases potentiate the morbidity of COPD, prompting expanded hospitalisations and healthcare costs. They can frequently cause death, independently of respiratory failure. Comorbidities make the management of COPD difficult and should be evaluated and treated adequately.
