Special Issue "Causes and Consequences of Digestive Diseases on Nutritional Status"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 March 2021.
In 1917, the Academy of Nutrition declared that “registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) should play a significant role in educating medical students, fellows, and physicians in practice and that the more physicians learn about the effectiveness of nutrition for the prevention and treatment of diseases, the more likely they are to consult with RDNs and understand and value the role of RDNs in improving the quality of care provided to patients”. On the other hand, RDNs should be aware of the mechanisms by which diseases can lead to the deterioration of nutritional status (either by excess or by default). Physicians need to have a reliable ally for the nutritional management of their patients, but this is only possible if the dietitian nutritionist demonstrates a robust knowledge about the causes and consequences of diseases on nutritional status.
The aim of this Special Issue is to update knowledge on the pathogenesis of nutritional alterations commonly observed in gastroenterological, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic diseases, and due to its global vision, it aspires to be useful both to RDNs and to family doctors, gastroenterologist, internists, and surgeons.
Finally, this special topic supports interprofessional education in nutrition as an essential component of medical education.
