Neither of these sound very healthful or antiaging to me.
High blood glucose causes faster accumualtion of advanced glycosylation
end-products (AGEs). This is thought to be a major reason why diabetics
age faster.

CR, which is *known* to be antiaging, lowers blood pressure and lowers
average blood glucose level. This last is thought to be one of its major
benefits and the main reason for its lifespan extension.
