Special Issue "Influence of Nutrients on Acid-Base Balance"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 October 2020).
Interests: trace elements; vitamins; nutrition; artificial nutrition; malnutrition; parenteral nutrition; enteral nutrition; cardiovascular diseases; obesity; amino acids; bone health; skeletal muscle mass; hypertension; physicochemical stability of all-in-one parenteral nutrition mixtures; membrane ion transport systems; genetic aspects of atherosclerosis, hypertension, and obesity
This Special Issue aims to provide the most updated clinical evidence concerning the relationship between food carrying acid-forming nutrients and chronic and metabolic disorders, and also related mechanisms in their progression. Nutrients are known to influence the body's acid–base balance, providing precursors of non-volatile acids and bases. Diets high in acid-forming nutrients induce a chronic low-grade metabolic acidosis status jointly with the progress of metabolic alterations such as insulin resistance, diabetes, metabolic bone disease, chronic kidney disease, age-related muscle loss, hypertension, and other chronic diseases. Beyond the general population, this Special Issue is also of interest to long-term artificial nutrition patients. Metabolic acidosis and metabolic bone disease are frequent complications in patients receiving total parenteral or enteral nutrition due to the excessive exogenous administration and/or endogenous production of non-volatile acids.
Submissions of experimental papers, up-to-date reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses), and commentaries addressing a broad range of issues related to this topic are welcome.
I look forward to your stimulant submissions.
Dr. Roberto Iacone
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
