Mechanisms of being malnutrition include anorexia, abnormally affected metabolism, hypercytokinemia, chronic loss of blood, and consumption of nutrition by cancer growing.

On the basis of the assessment of nutrition, appropriate supplementation of nutrition should be performed. The routs of nutritional supplementation include oral ingestion, tubural feeding, gastrostomy tube, enterostomy tube, peripheral parenteral nutrition and intravenous hyperalimenation.
