Special Issue "Precision Nutrition and Metabolic Disease"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2019)
The rising prevalence of obesity and metabolic disease in the form of prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and lipid disorders is a major global health issue. Despite the efforts of lifestyle interventions, i.e. diet, physical activity, smoking, etc., to prevent and manage such diseases, this problem continues to grow at an alarming rate. Tailored nutrition prescription that complements a person's unique genetic profile is a new way to provide specific nutritional advice that can support health maintenance and disease prevention.
Recently, the emergence of precision nutrition offers a different perspective on personalised nutrition to deliver nutritional recommendations that are more comprehensive and fluid based on the ever changing variables in a person’s internal and external environment over their life course. In addition to gene-diet interaction, other factors such as food choices and behaviour, physical activity, the microbiota and the metabolome, as well as the application in clinical practice and commercialisation and feasibility on a population-wide scale are considered within the scope of precision nutrition.
This special feature issue explores precision nutrition and attempts to provide specific nutritional and dietary strategies to prevent or manage obesity and metabolic diseases, as well as complications associated with such diseases. Studies investigating the challenges associated with the concept and its implementation will also be included.
