Glycemic Index

Food & Diabetes - Important aspects of Food in Diabetes

Glycemic index is the relative rise in blood glucose after ingestion of the concerned food product as compared to that by the same amount of sugar or white bread, even though total amount of carbohydrates and calories may remain same in the studied food item and glucose. The glycemic index of sugar is taken as 1, rest of the foods are compared against it. The higher the glycemic index the higher blood glucose levels would be achieved immediately after eating that particular food item, while in foods with lower glycemic index blood glucose may rise slowly after and over a longer period of time in the studied food item and glucose. Foods with lower glycemic index Foods with lower glycemic index are preferable for diabetics.

Most of the complications of Diabetes like atherosclerosis , high blood pressure and coronary artery disease have been associated with post prandial peaks in blood glucose ( that is the steep rise in blood sugar after taking meals), hence it is important to lower blod sugar consistently.
