Rheumatic diseases are some of the most prevalent diseases. With the aging of the population, their prevalence and burden are expected to increase. Modifiable factors like nutrition might play a role in the course and prognosis of these diseases. Increasing amounts of evidence are showing that the microbiome also plays a relevant role.
Most of the patients with rheumatic diseases have more than one disease. Multimorbidity, namely the association of rheumatic diseases with obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and other metabolism dysfunctions, as well as depression and unhealthy life styles, call for improved patient literacy, patient empowerment, and integrated care.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together researchers, academics, clinicians, nutritionists, other health professionals, and experts in the fields of rheumatic diseases, nutrition, and metabolism to increase our knowledge and evidence of nutrition and metabolism in rheumatic diseases.
