The Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) is a (validated) diagnostic screening tool for determining the extent of a patient’s malnutrition.
For this screening tool, every patient’s Body Mass Index (BMI) and
weight loss percentage is calculated, after which the patient is assigned a disease factor. The MUST helps to recognize and treat malnutrition at an early stage.

(Source: Guidelines for Screening and Treating Malnutrition.)


The MUST score is used to determine the extent of malnutrition or the risk of malnutrition. To treat malnutrition quickly and effectively, it is important to identify the malnutrition at an early stage.

Patient Population

The MUST is used for patients aged 18 and older.
For children, the STRONGkids tool is used.
