AGEs

AGEs play a pivotal role in the development of chronic age-related diseases such as diabetes, renal failure and cardiovascular disease.

Effects of AGEs

Health related effects
AGEs play a pivotal role in the development of chronic age-related diseases such as diabetes, renal failure and cardiovascular disease. The level of AGEs in long-lived tissues (not in blood!) serves as a memory of glycometabolic and oxidative stress and is a valuable predictor of cardiovascular complications.

The graphic below shows how AGEs can lead to the development of vascular complications through 2 pathways: binding to the receptor of AGEs and cross-linking to proteins.
