Abstract Cancer and HIV infection/AIDS are associated with an increased risk of undernutrition and cachexia. During the past decade, patients became older, frequently overweight or obese and sedentary, conditions which are likely to result in fat-free mass (FFM) loss. This review sustains the hypothesis that FFM measurement should be implemented in routine clinical practice, to optimize the management of cancer and AIDS, as well as disease-related undernutrition.
