Special Issue in Nutrients: Ageing and Sarcopenia: Effect of Community and Clinical Nutrition
The global population is aging at an unprecedented speed. Frailty and sarcopenia are two common conditions among the older adults. Frailty is characterized by several deficits in multiple health related domains while sarcopenia reflects declines in muscle mass, muscle strength, and physical performance. Both conditions are related with functional decline in various physiological systems and lower quality of life.
While there is considerable interest among scientists regarding the effect of nutrition on frailty and sarcopenia epidemiology, there is still scant information on various factors as well as among temporal and regional patterns. Information among low- and middle- income older populations is limited. Recent studies have shown that specific nutritional components and dietary habits could have a beneficial effect on frailty syndrome as well as on sarcopenia and muscle loss. Given the importance of this issue, the journal Nutrients is planning a Special Issue on “Nutrition, Frailty and Sarcopenia Prevention” with the aim of providing a source for accurate and up-to-date scientific information on this topic.
We invite you and your co-workers to consider the submission of your original research findings or a review article on the topic. Manuscripts should focus on the impact of specific food components, dietary patterns, energy intake, macro-nutrients, micro-nutrients, alcohol intake, food insecurity, innovative foods, as well as malnourishment and appetite to frailty and sarcopenia across older populations. We also welcome manuscripts that focus on community nutrition and intervention studies (i.e., protein diet, diet quality) that are related to frailty and sarcopenia.
