This Special Issue on “Advances in Enteral Nutrition” aims to provide an overview of the importance of enteral nutrition (elemental or polymeric formulas) in malnourished and/or at risk of malnutrition patients, who on one hand have functional guts but on the other hand are not able to meet the nutritional requirements for energy and nutrients by a standard diet.
Enteral access requires an interdisciplinary approach to determine the best options and placement procedure for the patient. The estimated duration of treatment and the intended location of feeding are important considerations when selecting the type of feeding tube to place. Recent evidence has shown that an enteral nutrition may modify the composition of intestinal microbiome, being important in the pathogenesis of, e.g., inflammatory bowel diseases and cancer development/treatment. Taking into account patient health, quality of life, and the reduction of cost in the health care system, home enteral nutrition may also be of high importance. Finally, it seems that patients’ and their caregivers’ education in the management of enteral nutrition may be key to improving the adherence to enteral nutrition.
This issue will open a space for the discussion of different approaches and challenges related to enteral nutrition for professionals. You are welcome to share with readers your research results that will bring us closer to personalized nutrition in severely ill patients.
