Title of thesis: Dietary advanced glycation endproducts - effects on risk markers for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease

About the thesis: High heat cooking induced flavor, aroma, and color of food, but also leads to formation of ”Advanced Glycation Endproducts” (AGEs). AGEs are also formed in the body as part of our metabolism. Formation of AGEs in the body has been linked to the development of diabetic complications. As the contribution of AGEs from food has been estimated to be larger than the amount formed in the body, it has been discussed if AGEs from food can contribute to development of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate if intake of AGEs from food increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
