In chronic disease, fatigue is commonly described as a “state of overwhelming exhaustion which cannot be relieved by sleep”, and it is a frequent occurrence in, e.g., cancer. Fatigue is related to an impairment of a variety of functional parameters and has debilitating effects on quality of life. Many predictors of fatigue have been identified including inflammation, sleep deprivation, and a loss of appetite and nutritional deficiency. Muscle weakness is considered a key component in fatigue, and muscle fatigue itself is the inability of the muscle to generate force, which not only occurs in disease but is commonly found in, e.g., athletes, among whom muscle fatigue has a considerable impact on performance.
This Special Issue will address the broad spectrum of fatigue and explore the associations between nutritional status, dietary intake, anorexia, and fatigue, as well as fatigue-related parameters welcoming both original submissions as well as review articles.
