Abstract

 Background: OBESITY is a serious public health issue and is related to lung dysfunction. In fact, OBESITY is commonly regarded as a risk factor for ASTHMA development, poor ASTHMA control, and poor response to ASTHMA therapy. We investigated the association of anthropometric measurements with lung function in ASTHMAtic patients.Methods: In a cross-sectional study, the medical records of 85 ASTHMAtics were analyzed. For determining of lung function, Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) was performed by spirometer and anthropometric parameters including weight, height, BODY MASS INDEX (BMI), waist circumference (WC), hip circumference (HC) and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) were measured for each person.Results: Mean age and median duration of ASTHMA for participants were 43.9±10.61 and 6 (3to 14) years, respectively.Among anthropometric parameters, only WHR indicated significant correlation with Pulmonary function tests in both sex (p<0.05). There were negative associations between WC, HC and WHR with PFTs only in overweight and obese women (p<0.05).Conclusion: Some of the anthropometric parameters are correlated with lung function and it seems that Gender differentially contributes to the relationship between OBESITY and lung function.
