A comprehensive assessment of nutritional status is a critically important component of any patient evaluation. Based upon clinical information, anthropometric data, and a small number of laboratory investigations, an accurate appraisal of nutritional status should be possible and an appropriate intervention plan can be developed. The actual approach depends on the particular problem discovered. These are discussed in detail elsewhere in this issue.
