Chronic conditions affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract can have various adverse nutritional impacts. This is especially relevant in growing and developing children diagnosed with a chronic GI condition.
The nutritional impact of chronic GI conditions in childhood includes weight loss, or limitations of weight gains, impaired linear growth and pubertal delay. Additional impacts include micronutrient deficiency (such as iron, vitamin D or zinc). Such deficiencies can impact learning (e.g., iron deficiency) or bone health (e.g., calcium or vitamin D deficiency) with short- and/or long-term consequences. Malnutrition in children can have a significant impact not only on health-related patient outcomes, but also on the quality of life of children and their families. Relevant conditions which can have an impact on nutrition include inflammatory bowel disease, eosinophilic disorders, coeliac disease, pancreatic disorders, chronic liver disease, intestinal failure, neurological disorders, cancer and obesity.
This Special Issue aims to focus on the nutritional aspects of GI conditions in childhood, especially new approaches, novel findings and management. We welcome original articles along with review articles or short communications.
Potential topics include:
- Impact of GI conditions upon the growth and nutrition of children and adolescents: natural history and long-term outcomes, prediction of outcomes, interventions and therapeutic approaches;
- Micronutrients in children with chronic GI conditions: diagnosis, rates of deficiency of nutrients, consequences, prevention of deficiency and interventions;
- Role of enteral nutrition in intestinal failure, recent advances in parenteral nutrition, role of diet in IBD, diet therapy for eosinophilic esophagitis, specialized diets for functional gastrointestinal disorders, and the importance of diet in diseases such as cystic fibrosis, metabolic-associated liver disease and pancreatitis;
- The inter-relationship between diet and microbiome.
