    INSTRUCTIONS

    Note: although weight and nutritional status are not always correlated (e.g. obese patients may have malnutrition), for the purposes of this calculator, patients with increased weight from baseline (present weight > usual weight) are unlikely to have malnutrition. Always use clinical judgment.
