Implementing Glycemic Index in the Management of Weight, BMI and Glycosylated Hemoglobin Levels in Type-II Diabetics

Dr. Nitin Sharma [2] | Dr. V. D. Bohra

Abstract: This study determines the benefits of consuming low glycemic index (GI) diets in the management and control of Type II Diabetes Mellitus.200 diabetics who volunteered for the study had been divided randomly into 2 groups. Group 1 (n=100) consumed low GI diet for 2 months while Group 2 (n=100) served as controls. The reverse scheme was followed in the next 2 months when Group 1 served as control and Group 2 was fed with the low GI diet. The results demonstrated that when the subjects consumed low-GI diets, they showed clinically significant benefits in both BMI and HbA1c % levels.
