Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Over the last decade, growing evidence has identified the gut microbiota and its disturbance as a potential factor in the pathophysiology of metabolic disorders, including obesity or diabetes. Diet effects on intestinal microbial composition and its role in pathogenetic mechanisms that are responsible for metabolic disorders represent, at the moment, one of thes most promising topics in nutrition research. However, it is necessary for them to be further explored in order to understand and interrupt the pathogenetic mechanisms, which support metabolic diseases.
Although not completely elucidated, the link between microbes and the onset of specific metabolic diseases such as obesity could lead to the development of therapeutic methods using nutrients or probiotics to prevent or cure these diseases.
Hence, the aim of the current Special Issue is to report evidence for a link of the gut microbiota with human metabolic disorders, to provide insights into this association, and to address the effect of diet on this relationship.
