Doctor Mukhina: grapes provoke health problems in people after 60 years of age

According to nutritionist Mariyat Mukhina, grapes can easily be called the most dangerous berry for people over 60.

Doctor Mukhina said in an interview that an addiction to grapes can negatively affect the functioning of an elderly body. Speaking about the fact that grapes provoke health problems in people after 60 years of age, she noted: this plant product has a high glycemic index, that is, after its consumption, blood sugar levels can immediately increase significantly.

“For diabetics this berry is contraindicated and is even considered dangerous. Many older people suffer from insulin resistance or diabetes, so it’s better for them not to eat grapes,” nutritionist Mukhina shared with Moskva 24.
The doctor added that if the body is sensitive to the components of grapes, eating it can lead to an exacerbation of gastritis and ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal tract. In particular, after consuming it, gastric juice begins to be secreted more intensely.

If you have kidney failure, you should also not eat grapes. This contraindication is associated with the high potassium content in its berries.

“Products rich in this element cannot be consumed in case of kidney failure,” the expert emphasized.
