Objective: This study aimed to explore the prevalences of a broad spectrum of comorbid medical conditions among patients with CRS, using a population-based dataset. Study design: A cross-sectional study. Methods: In total, 5734 CRS subjects and 17,202 comparison subjects were included in this study. Separate conditional logistic regression analyses were performed to calculate the odds ratio (OR) for each of 39 medical comorbidities between subjects with and without CRS. Results: Results showed that after adjusting for sociodemographic characteristics, subjects with CRS had a statistically significantly higher OR than subjects without CRS for 27 of the 39 study comorbidities. Ranks of the top 5 comorbid relationships from the strongest ORs to the lowest were as follows: asthma (OR=3.09), chronic pulmonary disease (OR=3.04), weight loss (OR=2.58), obesity (OR=2.50), and migraines (OR=2.30). Conclusion: Our results indicate that subjects with CRS have increased prevalences of various comorbidities.
