Around 1 in 3 inpatients and 1 in 5 outpatients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are at risk of malnutrition. The causes are varied and include not only the physiological effects of the disease such as breathlessness and fatigue interfering with appetite and the ability to eat but also psychological, social and environmental factors such as depression, social isolation and living conditions. In addition, individuals with COPD may have increased energy requirements arising from systemic inflammation and increased effort associated with breathing. Malnutrition can develop over several years or be precipitated and continue following an acute exacerbation.

The ‘Managing Malnutrition in COPD’ (www.malnutritionpathway.co.uk/copd ) and ‘Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community’ (www.malnutritionpathway.co.uk ) guides and patient materials aim to raise awareness of the issue of disease-related malnutrition in the community and provide professionals and patients with materials to assist them to identify, manage and reverse malnutrition. The materials have been developed by a multi-professional panel and are based on clinical evidence, clinical experience and best practice and are endorsed by key professional and patient associations.
