The body is constantly renewing cells, but sometimes this mechanism does not work correctly. As a result, aging and other defective cells accumulate in the tissues, which affect their environment. As a result, the surrounding cells may be less able to absorb nutrients such as sugar, causing a pre-diabetic state.
Scientists have developed and tested combinations of two experimental drugs called dasatinib and quercetin. They have already been shown to increase lifespan and improve health in aged mice. According to the findings, these drugs can cope with aging cells in human adipose tissue. Adipose tissue cells were also injected into mice, in which they caused metabolic disturbances. However, after treatment with dasatinib and quercetin, the harmful effects of adipose tissue practically disappeared.
