Nutrition habits are one of the most important factors influencing health. Rational nutrition, which follows some general rules concerning both quality and quantity of food eaten, is a major part of lifestyle, which due to the COVID-19 pandemic has suddenly been changed, including changes in eating patterns, sleeping habits, and physical activity. It would promote sedentary behaviors that affect mental and physical health and lead to an increased risk of obesity. On the other hand, inadequate diet and infectious diseases can lead to malnutrition. This explains why during the COVID-19 pandemic the nutritional status of individuals, especially those with chronic diseases, has been used as a measure of resilience toward destabilization. Optimal nutrition and specific nutrient intake have some impacts on the immune system through gene expression, cell activation, and signaling molecule modification. In addition, various dietary ingredients are determinants of gut microbial composition and subsequently create the immune responses in the body.
I invite you to send manuscripts related to the assessment of nutrition mode and nutritional status of individuals with specific health problems, eating habits and lifestyle changes, and over- and undernutrition of patients with chronic diseases during the COVID-19 pandemic.
