Purpose of review In recent years, many of the concerns surrounding the glycemic index have been addressed by methodological studies and clinical trials comparing diets carefully matched for other nutrients. These findings are reviewed together with new observational evidence for the role of the dietary glycemic index in the etiology of cardiovascular disease. Recent findings The determination and classification of the glycemic index of a food product is now standardized by the International… Expand
Glycemic index and glycemic load in cardiovascular disease risk
Diet comprises of many nutritious components like carbohydrates, protein, fats and fibers. Each component has different functions which directly or indirectly involved in the growth and maintenanceExpand
Effect of Diets Differing in Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load on Cardiovascular Risk Factors: Review of Randomized Controlled-Feeding Trials
TLDR
The results of the five randomized controlled trials satisfying the inclusion criteria suggest inconsistent effects of the GI/GL value of the diet on CVD risk factors. Expand
Dietary Glycemic Load and Glycemic Index and Risk of Cerebrovascular Disease in the EPICOR Cohort
TLDR
In this Italian cohort, high dietary GL and carbohydrate from high GI foods consumption increase overall risk of stroke. Expand
Glycemic index of pre-exercise meal and glucose metabolism in aerobic physical activity
TLDR
Based on the recurrence of some results, low glycemic index foods cause fewer postprandial glycemic alterations which may entail a more stable behavior throughout the exercise, making it a more conservative nutritional strategy for the general population. Expand
Association between carbohydrate quality and inflammatory markers: systematic review of observational and interventional studies.
TLDR
Evidence from intervention studies for antiinflammatory benefits is less consistent for higher-fiber or whole-grain diets than for low-GI/GL diets, and benefits of higher fiber and whole- grain intakes suggested by observational studies may reflect confounding. Expand
What dietary modification best improves insulin sensitivity and why?
TLDR
This study focuses on changes in IR by isoenergetic modulation of the main macronutrients (fat, carbohydrates including dietary fibre, and dietary protein), with discussion of novel concepts and the potential interplay of food components in the current dietary concepts. Expand
Adverse metabolic effects of dietary fructose: results from the recent epidemiological, clinical, and mechanistic studies
TLDR
The accumulating epidemiological evidence, direct clinical evidence, and the evidence suggesting plausible mechanisms support a role for sugar in the epidemics of metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes. Expand
Higher Complex Carbohydrate Diets in Gestational Diabetes
TLDR
The preponderance of evidence from randomized trials in GDM suggests that a balanced liberalization of higher quality complex carbohydrates results in good glycemic control, improved insulin action and improved maternal glucose tolerance, improved lipemia, and vascular benefits, while low-GI diets in particular may reduce the need for insulin, and lower postprandial glycemia. Expand
Aspects of carbohydrate quality and their relevance for risk markers of type 2 diabetes and related health outcomes
TLDR
During puberty, a higher intake of carbohydrates from higher-GI food sources and lower whole-grain consumption prospectively predict greater IL-6 concentrations in young adulthood, supporting the hypothesis that diet during puberty influences later inflammation and metabolic dysfunction. Expand
Dietary Glycemic Index during Pregnancy Is Associated with Biomarkers of the Metabolic Syndrome in Offspring at Age 20 Years
TLDR
The data suggests that high dietary GI in pregnancy may affect levels of markers for the metabolic syndrome in young adult offspring in a potentially harmful direction. Expand

TLDR
The protective effects of low glycemic load and high whole grains on systemic inflammation may be explained by reduction in hyperglycemia-induced overproduction of oxidative stress and by amelioration in insulin resistance, adiposity, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Expand
Glycemic index and glycemic load in relation to food and nutrient intake and metabolic risk factors in a Dutch population.
TLDR
A low-GI diet, which is high in dairy and fruit but low in potatoes and cereals, is associated with improved insulin sensitivity and lipid metabolism and reduced chronic inflammation, and GL is highly correlated with carbohydrate intake and is not clearly associated with the investigated metabolic risk factors. Expand
Glycemic index, glycemic load, and prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in the cooper center longitudinal study.
TLDR
A lifestyle that includes a low glycemic diet can improve metabolic risk profiles in men and women and Prospective studies examining glycemic index, glycemic load, and metabolic syndrome that control for cardiorespiratory fitness are needed. Expand
Effects of glycemic load on metabolic risk markers in subjects at increased risk of developing metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
When incorporated into a habitual diet, consumption of test foods with a decreased GL does not ameliorate metabolic risk markers in overweight subjects. Expand
Effect of a low-glycemic index or a high-cereal fiber diet on type 2 diabetes: a randomized trial.
TLDR
In patients with type 2 diabetes, 6-month treatment with a low-glycemic index diet resulted in moderately lower HbA(1c) levels compared with a high-cereal fiber diet. Expand
Effects of low- and high-glycemic index/glycemic load diets on coronary heart disease risk factors in overweight/obese men.
TLDR
Overall, high- and low-GI/GL diets of 4 weeks' duration had no consistent effects on coronary heart disease risk factors in this group of overweight/obese men. Expand
Intake of carbohydrates compared with intake of saturated fatty acids and risk of myocardial infarction: importance of the glycemic index.
TLDR
This study suggests that replacingSFAs with carbohydrates with low-GI values is associated with a lower risk of MI, whereas replacing SFAs with carbohydrate with high- GI values isassociated with a higher risk ofMI. Expand

TLDR
The ability of low GI dietary advice to improve the dietary quality of Asian patients with T2DM is demonstrated. Expand
Prediction of postprandial glycemia and insulinemia in lean, young, healthy adults: glycemic load compared with carbohydrate content alone.
TLDR
These findings provide the first large-scale, systematic evidence of the physiologic validity and superiority of dietary GL over carbohydrate content alone to estimate postprandial glycemia and insulin demand in healthy individuals. Expand
Carbohydrate nutrition and inflammatory disease mortality in older adults.
TLDR
New epidemiologic evidence is provided of a potentially important link between GI and inflammatory disease mortality among older women and no associations were observed with cardiovascular mortality. Expand
