Nutrients is planning a Special Issue focusing on the “Nutritional management of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders”. Diet not only provides nutrition, but also affects several important functions of the body. The proportion of proteins, carbohydrates and fat in our diet control the type and the amount of gastrointestinal hormones released into the blood stream. These hormones regulate gastrointestinal motility, secretion, absorption, cell proliferation, appetite and local immune defense. The gastrointestinal hormones integrate and interact with the enteric, autonomic and central nervous system. Food intake also affects the intestinal microbiota, which is believed to play an important role in health and disease. The present issue represents an attempt to present the latest research on using dietary management to treat gastrointestinal diseases and disorders, and the possible mechanisms behind its effects.
