Nutrition and digestive function are closely interrelated. During digestion, the digestive tract breaks down food into nutrients and absorbs these nutrients for energy, growth, and cell repair. Therefore, digestive diseases (DDs) commonly result in malnutrition and increase morbidity, and even mortality. On the other hand, chronic malnutrition impairs digestive and absorption function to induce disease.
Bad eating habits or specific nutrients can trigger DDs, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, and Crohn’s disease. Meanwhile, some nutrients or dietary supplements such as dietary fiber, short-chain fatty acids, fish oil, micronutrients, prebiotics, or probiotics may prevent DDs and benefit gut health.
This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality research concerning the influence of diet and nutrition on digestive diseases and disorders. Submissions focused on underrepresented populations are welcome: reports of original research (longitudinal studies, health promotion intervention studies, qualitative research, epidemiology, omics including genomics) or reviews (systematic reviews, meta-analyses).
