Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This was a observational study in which adults with COPD underwent pulmonary function testing (plethysmography), 6-min walking test (6MWT), and nutritional status assessment using Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA). Body balance was quantified using Timed UP and GO test, BBS scale, Tinetti test and Unipodal Stance Test (UST). participants completed each test over 1 hour at baseline and again after 1 month

Statistical methods / analysis
The sample size was calculated using MedCalc version
8.2 (Medcalc Software, Mariakerke, Belgium). A minimum
of 23 cases were required to test for the alternative hypothesis
that the correlation coefficient is higher than 0.50.
To check the normality of the sample, a Shapiro-Wilk test was used. Independent t test was used to examine differences between patients with low score and patients with normal score of each balance test. Spearman's correlation analysis was used to test the possible correlations between the parameters. The statistical significance level was set at p<0.05.
