Abstract

Although studies have examined the relationship between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and COPD, the incidence of MetS in individuals with COPD has not specifically been investigated. This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of MetS in subjects with airway obstruction using data from a community-based cohort. Data representing 4 years of follow-up from the Ansung-Ansan cohort were analyzed; a total of 6,184 adults, who were ≥40 years of age and underwent spirometry, were enrolled in this study. Airway obstruction was defined as forced expiratory volume in 1 s/forced vital capacity ratio <70%, and MetS was determined according to the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III guidelines. A total of 419 patients were newly diagnosed with MetS, based on the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III guidelines, during follow-up. MetS was more frequent in COPD subjects, relative to non-COPD subjects, in both sexes (14.7% vs 11.0% [men] and 14.7% vs 11.8% [women]). In men subjects, the risk for MetS was higher in subjects with airflow obstruction than in subjects without obstruction, after adjusting for age, body mass index, and smoking status. The incidence of MetS was higher in men with airflow obstruction than in healthy subjects.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 July 2018.
All research outputs
#2,112,348
of 13,184,150 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
#285
of 1,605 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#66,165
of 267,448 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
#14
of 51 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,184,150 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 83rd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,605 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.0. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,448 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 51 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
