Cachexia as illustrated in the BIVA nomogram. The position of the measurement point in the BIVA nomogram is far below the line of normal BCM values (long axis) and well above the line of normal TBW values (short axis) far outside the 95th tolerance ellipse. The position in the lower right quadrant points to cachexia.
