Special Issue in Nutrients: Creatine Supplementation for Health and Clinical Diseases
According to the World Health Organization, worldwide obesity has nearly tripled since 1975 with over 1.9 billion adults classified as overweight with 650 million of these adults considered obese as of 2016. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the age-adjusted prevalence of obesity among adults in the United States was 42.4% in 2017–2018. This includes a prevalence of 40.0% among younger adults aged 20–39, 44.8% among middle-aged adults aged 40–59, and 42.8% among older adults aged 60 and over. Obesity is associated with co-morbidities, including diabetes, arthritis, pulmonary abnormalities, urinary incontinence, cataracts, and certain types of cancer. For this reason, strategies to help people effectively lose weight and/or maintain a healthy weight have become a paramount public health issue. This Special Issue will focus on the role energy intake, macronutrient alterations, and/or micronutrients play in energy metabolism, markers of obesity, weight loss, body composition, and/or weight management with or without other behavioral interventions.
