Candidate of Medical Sciences, endocrinologist of the Moscow State University Clinic Zukhra Pavlova explained what food destroys the pancreas.
We are talking about overeating sweet and fatty foods.
– In adipose tissue, systemic inflammation inevitably occurs with oxidative stress, against which insulin resistance develops, and pancreatic cells (not only them) that produce insulin die, — the candidate of medical Sciences explained in her telegram channel.
The doctor also explained what should be the breaks between meals. So, a person should eat no earlier than three hours after the previous meal and no later than five hours.
Fasting longer is definitely not worth it, as lipoprotein lipase, which tracks the level of nutrients, will increase its activity in adipose tissue. This is how the formation of fat reserves begins.
