2015 Dietary supplement for diabetic patients
The designed supplement contains a base of phytate and vitamins for their use in preventing the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), toxic products that occur in diseases such as diabetes.
The advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are a factor in the development or worsening of diseases such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease or Alzheimer. In the case of diabetes, AGEs are responsible for microvascular and macrovascular complications (nephropathy and neuropathy). Meanwhile, phytate is a natural product with a significant inhibitory effect on the formation of AGEs.
A phytate supplement is recommended to prevent or delay future complications in diabetic patients given its ability to inhibit the formation of AGEs, the combination of phytate and vitamins can be used for therapeutic purposes in the treatment or prevention of diseases that appear as a result of the formation of these products such as: neuropathy, nephropathy, atherosclerosis, vascular calcification and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer or Parkinson.
The developed dietary composition is based on natural products - phytate and vitamin B6, avoiding adverse effects to health and having a high inhibitory capacity for the formation of AGEs.
One of the therapeutic approaches to prevent the formation of AGEs is the use of inhibitors, such as Metformina. But unlike those, the supplement designed is based on natural products - phytate and vitamins, thus avoiding adverse health effects.
