The purpose of this article is to discuss the different types of adipose tissue involved in cachexia and describe their role in contributing to increased energy expenditure and negative energy balance. Armed with this knowledge, nurses will be better positioned to understand the clinical picture of cachexia, appreciate the rationale for proposed therapeutic interventions, and confidently dialogue with patients, families, and members of interdisciplinary health care teams about this prevalent condition.
