Body mass index and albumin levels are associated with pulmonary function parameters in pediatric subjects with cystic fibrosis

ABSTRACT Objective: To evaluate the association of body mass index (BMI) and albumin with pulmonary function in cystic fibrosis (CF) pediatric subjects. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study with clinically stable CF ’ s subjects. Clinical (pulmonary function) and nutritional evaluation (body mass index and albumin) were performed. Univariate analysis was performed using simple linear correlations. Regression analysis was performed using an exit level of p
