The effects of nutrition on chronic conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and stroke, continue to generate interest among researchers. This is based on the fact that diet is a modifiable risk factor. The composition of diet, including the proportions and types of macronutrients and micronutrients, is a major contributor to chronic diseases. The beneficial effects of nutritional interventions on chronic conditions have been well documented, although differences remain among researchers concerning their overall impact. Evaluations of the role of nutrition in chronic conditions draw on diet’s effects on body weight, body composition, glycemic and insulin excursions, and vascular remodelling. The effect of diet in modulating gut microbiota dysbiosis is also an evolving area of research. This Special Issue, entitled “Nutrition in Chronic Conditions”, aims to examine the effect of nutrition in the development, care, and management of chronic conditions. Based on the research findings, it is clear that nutrition plays an important role in the development and severity of chronic conditions in children, adults, and older adults. Therefore, healthy dietary patterns should be promoted, and further research should be conducted to fully understand the biological pathways regarding how diet may influence chronic diseases.
