ABSTRACT Background: Hand grip is an indicator that can be used to evaluate nutritional status and also physical strength. Handgrip strength test is one of the common assessments that may be applied easily and quickly in various health care services to obtain accurate results. Method: Cross-sectional technique was implemented involving one hundred and forty medical students divided into two groups. Analysis in the first group (n =78) was conducted to measure the strength of the hand along with body mass index (BMI) and mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC). While the second group (n = 62) measurement included the handgrip strength and body composition (fat and water composition and lean mass). Nutritional status measurement was applied using digital scales and height gauges, while Medline tape for MUAC evaluation. Handgrip strength was assessed using a handgrip dynamometer while body composition was analyzed with handheld bio-impedance analysis (BIA). Result: The values of BMI, MUAC water and fat composition showed higher values (p<0.05) in men except lean mass. Correlations were shown between handgrip strength with BMI (r=0.48; α<0.05), LILA (r=0.43; α<0.05), fat proportion (r=0.73; α<0.05), and lean mass (r=-0.37; α<0.05). Conclusion: Male students demonstrated higher BMI, MUAC, and body fat composition values than female students. Handgrip strength increased consistently along with the increment of body mass index (BMI), mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC), and body fat proportions but described a negative correlation with lean mass. Keywords: handgrip strength, body mass index, body fat proportion, lean mass, nutritional status, body composition
