Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are emerging as global diseases. While novel therapies continuously enrich the medical scenario, nutritional care in this setting remains an unmet need. Despite the role of specific dietary plans and artificial nutrition schemes already being studied, nutrition's role should be further investigated as a cause and remedy. Moreover, due to the heterogeneity of clinical presentation, the nutritional challenges in IBD overcome the dietary requirements, including macro and micronutrient deficiencies, water and electrolytes malabsorption, gut barrier and microbiota alterations, dietary management of the surgical complication, food tolerance, and choice of correct nutritional plans according to specific symptoms. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect cutting-edge evidence on this argument to offer clinicians and scientists a valuable offer of integrative care.
