We invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Nutrition in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)”. The purpose of this Special Issue is to increase knowledge regarding the role of dietary composition and effects in IBD, describing the prevalence of malnutrition in IBD and the effect on clinical outcomes, discussing methods of nutrition risk screening and assessment in IBD, and reviewing mechanisms through which diet and dietary components may affect disease severity. To achieve these objectives, we welcome the submission of manuscripts describing original research, or that provide high quality reviews that relate to several issues in nutrition science relevant to IBD. Manuscripts across a broad range of topics will be considered, but we are particularly interested in considering manuscripts that address the following areas:
- Dietary Composition/Therapy Interventions in Ulcerative Colitis and effects on outcomes
- Dietary Composition/Therapy Interventions in Crohn’s Disease and effects on outcomes
- Nutrition Risk Screening and Assessment in IBD
- Mechanisms of Diet in the pathogenesis of IBD
