Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are organizing a Special Issue on the effects of exercise and nutrition on the prevention and treatment of frailty in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. IJERPH is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. The most recent Impact Factor of the journal is 3.390. For detailed information on the journal, please go to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph

With the aging population growing steadily, frailty is becoming a common condition that is still not well understood. Indeed, frailty increases the risk of hospitalization, disability, and death. It is also a condition associated with cognitive decline, where older people with frailty have a higher risk of developing dementia and people with dementia have a higher risk of developing frailty. This interdependence provides us with the insight that preventing the onset of frailty could have some important benefits on overall health, ranging from physical capacity to cognitive function, and thus reducing the prevalence of frailty. However, there is no consensus available on the correct exercise and nutrition program for the prevention of frailty. Since frailty is a multidimensional geriatric condition, there is not one single approach that can capture all of the different deficits related to frailty.

This Special Issue aims to bring together the latest research on the effect of exercise and nutrition on the prevalence and treatment of frailty. This Special Issue could also provide an important hub, combining all of the best recommendations in exercise and nutrition for the prevention and treatment of frailty. Original clinical studies, epidemiological studies, meta-analyses, and review articles will be considered.
