The Glycemic Index (GI) is just one of the many tools you have available to you to improve your dietary control. It classifies foods according to how much they raise blood glucose following ingestion of an amount of the food that contains 50 grams of carbohydrates. The GI was devised as a means to help diabetics in their food selections. One of the values of this general index is that it shows that even among carbohydrates, there is a wide variance of values. For instance, the potato is actually a high glycemic food that can spike one’s insulin levels.

Our blood glucose or blood sugar levels are one of the most important measures of good health. New research has demonstrated that fasting blood glucose levels at about 75mg/dl to 85mg/dl might be ideal and any amount of incremental fasting glucose over 85 mg/dl incrementally increases heart attack risk. Many people are challenged to keep their blood glucose below 100mg/dl, which is a ticking time bomb that should be treated as an emergency with immediate diet and lifestyle changes.

A poor diet as well as snacking can induce the pancreas to secrete large amounts of insulin. There is also the normal aging that causes the insulin receptors on cell membranes to lose their youthful sensitivity or functionality. In an abnormal situation, too much sugar consumption leads to elevated blood glucose levels, which chronically elevate blood insulin levels. As a consequence, the insulin receptors stop responding to the insulin (medically known as the pathological condition called “insulin receptor resistance” or “insulin resistance”), and the glucose cannot enter the cell. Therefore, the blood glucose continues to increase, which further increases blood insulin, creating more insulin receptor resistance.
