Summary of "Association between dietary glycemic index and glycemic load, insulin index and load with incidence of age-related cataract: Results from a case-control study."

To identify the association between the dietary carbohydrate indexes, such as dietary glycemic index (DGI) and load (DGL), dietary insulin index (DII) and load (DIL), with the possibility of cataract.

Glycemic load, dietary fiber, and added sugar and fecundability in 2 preconception cohorts.

Glycemic load (GL) reflects the quantity and quality of carbohydrates in the diet; dietary fiber and added sugar are components of GL. Few epidemiologic studies have assessed the association between t...

The association between glycemic index, glycemic load, and metabolic syndrome: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of observational studies.

The association of glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) with metabolic syndrome (MetS) is controversial. Therefore, we conducted this first systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of o...

Effects of low glycemic index/high-fat, high-calorie diet on glycemic control and lipid profiles of children and adolescence with cystic fibrosis: A randomized double-blind controlled clinical trial.

Low glycemic index diets seem to be potentially effective to improve glycemic control and reduce lipid profiles. Hence, this study aimed to evaluate the effect of a low glycemic index/high fat, high-c...

Impact of acute-phase insulin secretion on glycemic variability in insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes.

The association between β-cell function and glycemic variability remains to be clarified in insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes. Therefore, the study sought to examine the association of va...


In hospitalized patients, glycemic excursions outside recommended glycemic targets have been associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Despite recommendations to avoid use of correctional ins...

Low Glycemic Load Diet in Patients With Stage I-III Colon Cancer

This pilot clinical trial studies the feasibility of a low glycemic load diet in patients with stage I-III colon cancer. A low glycemic load diet includes foods that have low scores on the...

Assessment of Glycemic Index of Different Dates

Glycemic Index is a system of classification of different foods with significant levels of carbohydrates based on how they affect blood glucose levels after being consumed. In this study w...

Continuous Glucose Monitoring During Diets That Differ in Glycemic Load

This study test whether a Continuous Glucose Monitor can pickup differences in glucose (in the interstitial fluid) during a dietary intervention using meals with either a high with a low g...

Low Glycemic Index and Load Diet for the Treatment of Acne

Clinical trial to determine the effect of adding a diet with low glycemic index and load to adults for the treatment of moderate acne. Adult patients with acne where recruited in two group...

Glycemic Load, Weight Loss and Cardiovascular Disease Risk

To investigate the hypothesis that reducing the glycemic load of the diet will improve changes in body composition and cardio-vascular risk factors. The study compares a conventional reduc...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A quantitative value of a measured amount of a specific food that is equal to the GLYCEMIC INDEX of that food multiplied by the carbohydrate content of that food.

A numerical system of measuring the rate of BLOOD GLUCOSE generation by a particular food item as compared to a reference item, such as glucose = 100. Foods with higher glycemic index numbers create greater blood sugar swings. These numbers do not correspond to calories or amounts of food intake but rather, depend on the rates of digestion and absorption of these food items.

A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)

An insulin preparation that is designed to provide immediate and long term glycemic control in a single dosage. Biphasic insulin typically contains a mixture of REGULAR INSULIN or SHORT-ACTING INSULIN combined with a LONG-ACTING INSULIN.

A course of food intake prescribed for patients, that limits the amount of foods with a high GLYCEMIC INDEX.
