Protein glycation after return to normoglycaemia: implications for mild, repetitive hyperglycaemia


Dear Sir, The effect of chronic hyperglycaemia in glycating body proteins is generally agreed to contribute to the secondary consequences of diabetes mellitus [1, 2]. But it is not widely recognised that even if there is a rapid return to normoglycaemia, the later more damaging stages of the glycation sequence cannot be avoided. In vitro work shows that the… (More)
