As increases in healthy life expectancy have not kept pace with improvements in life expectancy, today’s older adults may face greater time spent in poor health, with greater likelihood of having multiple chronic and complex health conditions and disability. Recognition of the challenges that ageing populations face has focused attention on health trajectories in later life. Understanding the determinants of differences in the rate and pace of ageing across the population will be central both to the provision of effective support to promote health and to help to maintain independence in older age, as well as predicting the healthcare needs of older people in the future. Lifestyle factors (diet, physical activity, sleep, smoking, alcohol) are known determinants of health, and may also be key influences on healthy ageing.
This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled "Diet, Lifestyle and Healthy Ageing", welcomes the submission of manuscripts describing either original research or systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
- influences on diet and lifestyle in older age: psychosocial and age-related factors;
- diet, lifestyle and retirement transition;
- inequalities in diet and lifestyle among older populations;
- diet, lifestyle and healthy ageing;
- systematic reviews and meta-analyses of studies of diet, lifestyle and health outcomes in older age; and
- systematic reviews and meta-analyses of interventions to support diet and lifestyle in older populations.
