Grilled chicken may taste delicious but the dish could put you at risk of your polycystic ovarian syndrome symptoms leading to pre-diabetes if you eat it too often.
Intense heat accelerates chemical reactions between proteins and sugars, which form toxic compounds called advanced glycation end products (AGEs).
Grilled, fried and broiled meats are particularly rich in AGE products, which have been linked with pre-diabetes. This latter condition, in turn, is closely associated with reversible PCOS.
Fortunately, pre-diabetes is also reversible. But, if neglected, it can develop into type 2 diabetes, which is irreversible in the vast majority of cases and may require daily injections of insulin to manage it correctly.
With the barbecue season in full swing, you can still enjoy grilled chicken, of course. But remember that grilling, broiling or frying animal products do have a “dark side”, healthwise.
