Lung Function Decline and Disease Risk from Young Adulthood to Middle Age

This study will take advantage of longitudinal data collection in CARDIA to evaluate the association between lung function and risk of future lung disease and cardiovascular disease. The study will perform spirometry in all CARDIA participants at the year 30 examination, and test the hypothesis that individuals with accelerated decline in lung function are at risk for both pulmonary (COPD) and cardiovascular (hypertension, diastolic heart dysfunction, coronary artery disease, and heart failure) diseases.
