    AGE's are a new concept for me, but here's a primer:

    http://thepaleodiet.com/rage-of-ages-advanced-glycation-end-products/

    Basically when sugar and proteins mix, it can create AGE's which are pretty bad and cause low level inflammation. It turns out that these kind of things would have been at pretty low levels until we started processing food in the last century or two. And, even the paleo diet isn't perfect because some things, like fried bacon are high in AGE's.

    It all started when I was researching benfotiamine. And I came across this article:

    https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00446810

    It's not really the type two diabetes I was interested in, but the cytokines, mainly TNF-a, and the endothelial dysfunction link. I seem to commonly have some sort of endothelial dysfunction, but only after eating.




    Is avoiding AGE's a key?

    I posted some info on the possible benefits of avoiding advanced glycation end products (AGEs) here and here.
