Special Issue "Nutrients Influence on Kidney Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Nutrients and kidney diseases strongly influence each other. Kidneys filter and re-absorb various nutritional elements. Additionally, they synthesize many hormones, such as renin, erythropoietin, and prostaglandin, to maintain body homeostasis. Therefore, kidney diseases such as acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease owing to various pathological conditions may cause many kinds of nutrient abnormalities leading to malnutrition, anemia, mineral bone disorder, and more. Conversely, nutrients have been reported to affect the prognosis of patients with kidney diseases. Malnutrition is a strong predictor in determining the prognosis of patients with kidney diseases. Additionally, dietary therapy as represented by protein restriction to protect renal function in patients with kidney disease may cause protein energy wasting resulting in frailty syndrome, which decreases quality of life and leads to poor prognosis.
The aim of this Special Issue is to update our knowledge of nutrients in kidney disease as it relates to pathogenesis, molecular mechanisms, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment.
