Why is Low Glycemic Index Important? - Diabetes 29

Wednesday, February 1, 2023

Some of you may be have good knowledge about list of foods with higher calories. If not, we just look at packaging of foods. Calories and nutrition facts are written there.



Fig 01- Fruits have Low Glycemic Index


I always observe in many groceries, even kids and teenagers have a kind of “automatic” skill for reading quickly the nutrition facts and calories written on the packaging of any foods.


In respect to calories, it is important for diabetic or pre-diabetic patients. High calories may lead to spike of blood sugar.


In addition to calories, we should know Glycemic Index. Then what is Glycemic Index? Why important?

Glycemic Index is index to measure affect of certain foods on level of blood sugar in our body. The scale is between 0 to 100.


Lower Glycemic Index means the body could minimize the spike of blood sugar, so the level of blood sugar in balance.

  5. Peanuts and beans can still cause high blood sugar. These should be eaten in very very small portions (that might mean a teaspoon of beans or peanuts and it still leaves you hungry) for many who are diabetic. Yet it all depends on the individual and their body makeup. So a diabetic diet is really customized. It's a journey of trial by error a lot of times.

  6. I think if you know what's in the food that you make at home is much better for you than fast food. I like frying potatoes in my airfryer.
