Endocrinologist Zukhra Pavlova spoke about the dangers of drinking kefir before bed.
In a conversation with the website aif.ru on Monday, May 1, the specialist explained that a glass of kefir at night can cause a violation of carbohydrate metabolism and a pre-diabetic state.
In kefir, according to the doctor, there is a high insulin index, and this leads to an increase in the production of a hormone that causes a sharp decrease in blood glucose levels, writes Pravda.Ru.
“Of course, your liver will begin to produce it intensively. This means that by morning you will wake up with an increased level of glucose, ”the Federal News Agency quotes Pavlova.
She added that regular consumption of kefir before bedtime can be fraught with the appearance of fasting glucose, and excess blood sugar provokes the development of diabetes.
On April 10, Zukhra Pavlova advised not to eat anything at all before going to bed and drink only water, the 360 TV channel notes.
