The potential role of dietary advanced glycation endproducts in the development of chronic non-infectious diseases: a narrative review

  • M. E. Garay-Sevilla (a1), M. S. Beeri (a2) (a3), M. P. de la Maza (a4), A. Rojas (a5), S. Salazar-Villanea (a6) and J. Uribarri (a7)...


Increasing clinical and experimental evidence accumulated during the past few decades supports an important role for dietary advanced glycation endproducts (AGE) in the pathogenesis of many chronic non-infectious diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, CVD and others, that are reaching epidemic proportions in the Western world. Although AGE are compounds widely recognised as generated in excess in the body in diabetic patients, the potential importance of exogenous AGE, mostly of dietary origin, has been largely ignored in the general nutrition audience. In the present review we aim to describe dietary AGE, their mechanisms of formation and absorption into the body as well as their main mechanisms of action. We will present in detail current evidence of their potential role in the development of several chronic non-infectious clinical conditions, some general suggestions on how to restrict them in the diet and evidence regarding the potential benefits of lowering their consumption.
