It is my great pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Children on “Metabolic and Nutritional Diseases in Children”.
In pediatrics, metabolic and nutritional diseases encompass a broad group of pathological entities. From the most common food protein allergies and disaccharide intolerances to the rarest metabolic diseases, this group of pediatric illnesses negatively impacts the health, growth, and quality of life of affected children.
In recent decades, advances in molecular testing, endoscopic procedures, and imaging have led to increased awareness and diagnosis of metabolic and nutritional diseases. Still, their management remains a challenge, bringing together a team of experts, such as pediatricians, pediatric gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, dieticians, geneticists, and imagists.
This Special Issue of Children, “Metabolic and Nutritional Diseases in Children”, aims to include research that will advance current knowledge in the field of metabolic and nutritional diseases. The papers need to explore diagnostic challenges, present new techniques, or validate existing tools that assess metabolic and nutritional diseases and provide new insights into how therapeutic interventions can improve health, growth, and quality of life in children with metabolic and nutritional diseases.
