Diagrammatic representation of the dose–response curves of the effect of baseline BMI values on the rate of FEV1 decline in absolute values (mL/year) in GOLD Grades 1 and 2. The blue curve is averaged association of female patients, the orange curve is averaged association of male patients. The slope refers to reduction in rate of FEV1 decline per 1 kg/m2 increase in baseline BMI
