Start Here for Glycation and AGEs

If you are looking for my writings on glycation and AGEs, you should start with this article:

For a more technical and comprehensive introduction, I recommend chapter 2 of my dissertation. This is not available for free right now (your library should be able to access it, if by no other means by interlibrary loan), but I will try to make that happen in the future.

For the importance of insulin and glucose to protect against AGEs, see my Examine.Com Editorial with the slightly hyperbolic but not ironic title, Sugar is the Ultimate Antioxidant and Insulin Will Make You Younger: Appreciating a Few Poorly Recognized but Critical Contributions of Carbohydrate.
For the ability of methylglyoxal, the most important source of AGEs in the body, to contribute to the physiologically important role of glucose production, see We Really Can Make Glucose From Fatty Acids After All! O Textbook, How Thy Biochemistry Hast Deceived Me!

For major problems with the idea that AGEs contribute to disease by binding to the so-called "Receptor for AGEs" (RAGE), see Is the "Receptor for AGEs (RAGE)" Really a Receptor for AGEs?

For major problems with the high-profile papers purporting to measure the "AGE" content of foods, see Is Butter High in AGEs? and The Trouble With Measuring AGEs -- Butter and More

These are my podcasts about glycation:
