Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are organizing a Special Issue titled “Nutrition and Glucose Homeostasis” in Nutrients, a peer-reviewed scientific journal, indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) with the newly released Impact Factor 5.717 (Journal Citation Report, 2020 Edition). Nutrients now ranks 17/89 (Q1) in the category "Nutrition & Dietetics" and publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of nutrition sciences. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to: https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/nutrients.

Nutritional management of blood glucose levels is a strategic target in the control of hyperglycemia.  Chronic hyperglycemia can induce inflammation, insulin resistance, oxidative stress, and endothelial dysfunction, among others. All this can trigger diseases such as type 2 diabetes and its complications or cardiovascular diseases. Glucose homeostasis (GH) and nutrition play a crucial role not only in disease pathogenesis and control but also in human aging. Expanding knowledge about GH in relation to both situations through diet is key on a global level. For these reasons, this Special Issue welcomes original research articles presenting quantitative or qualitative data but also reviews that highlight core values of GH: disease-preventing and disease-treating, health-promoting, basic metabolism knowledge and healthy aging encouragement.
