A core leadership committee with representatives of global clinical nutrition societies (ASPEN, ESPEN, FELANPE, PENSA) established a consensus around core diagnostic criteria for malnutrition in adults in clinical settings. This infographic is designed to guide the use of the GLIM framework to screen, assess, diagnose, and grade the severity of malnutrition. Specific emphasis is given to the assessment of muscle mass as part of the GLIM diagnosis of malnutrition.
