  Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), as the sixth prevalent cause of death in the world, is one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. COPD has been defined as a disease state characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible and includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis, small airways diseases, etc. In this cross-sectional and analytical study, 145 patients having the inclusion criteria were selected using a convenience sampling. The data collection tools included a questionnaire including demographic data and health history as well as paraclinical results. Variables such as age, sex, history of cigarette smoking, hookah using, antibiotics and inhaled corticosteroids consumption, bread baking, serum concentration of vitamin D and FEV1 were evaluated. The collected data were then analyzed using the SPSS software. The study revealed that the mean serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D level was 64.0243.14 ng mL-1 and the mean FEV1 was 61.72±16.02%. There was a statistically significant linear relationship between serum 25-OHD level and FEV1. There was not a significant relationship between respiratory infection history in the last month and serum 25-OHD and FEV1 levels. Based on the results of the study, it can be claimed that there is a significant linear relationship between the serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D level and FEV1. Therefore, it seems that measuring vitamins level, particularly vitamin D, can be effective in order to use complementary medicine in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
