Special Issue in Nutrients: Dietary Effects on Human Lipid and Lipoprotein Metabolism
The spectrum of diet related diseases is broad and includes all ages. Eating disorders and other diet related diseases including obesity are often considered separately due to the classification of eating disorders as a mental disorder. However, regardless of their origin and their classification, they all have substantial impact on metabolic health. While all diet related diseases are associated with aspects of psychological health, it is the purpose of this special issue to emphasize the impact on human metabolic health. This includes, but is not limited to, endocrinological aspects, inflammatory pathways, hunger and satiety regulation, aspects of energy expenditure but also eating disorder related interventions and their ramifications for metabolic health.
