Special Issue "Carbohydrate Metabolism in Health and Disease"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: Interactions between nutrition and physical activity in the context of health and disease, with a particular focus on the manipulation of carbohydrate and fat metabolism to maintain health and improve sports performance
Carbohydrate metabolism is a key aspect of health and optimal function in a variety of species, including humans. A primary alteration in major global diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, is dysregulation of carbohydrate metabolism. Furthermore, certain disease outcomes may be impacted by the amount and type dietary carbohydrates consumed. Finally, carbohydrate availability is essential for optimal performance in many sporting events. We welcome the submission of manuscripts, either describing original research, or reviewing scientific literature on the topic of carbohydrate metabolism in health and disease.
