Fig. 1 Classification of malnutrition risk based on the MUST, NRS-2002, MST, and SNAQ tools.
Table 1. The patients’ demographic characteristics
Values are shown as number (%) unless otherwise indicated.
IQR, interquartile range; BMI, body mass index; SD, standard deviation; TNM, tumor node metastasis.
a Undifferentiated carcinomas include poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas, signet ring cell carcinomas, and mucinous carcinomas.
b Differentiated carcinomas include well or moderately differentiated, tubular, or papillary adenocarcinomas.
Table 2. Cross tabulation of the results for nutritional risk screening and cachexia classification
Score ≥1 (at risk of malnutrition)
Score 0 (not at risk of malnutrition)
Score ≥3 (at risk of malnutrition)
Score <3 (not at risk of malnutrition)
