Hypoglycemia and Glycemic Index

Glycemic index is a way of analyzing foods. It is a measurement which is carried out on carbohydrate containing foods and their impact on blood glucose level. According to glycemic index, carbohydrates are rated from 0 to 100.

Ingestion of carbohydrates that increases blood glucose level slowly, helps in managing hypoglycemia. To manage healthy blood glucose level, one should take low glycemic load foods. High glycemic load foods causes blood glucose level to rise and fall more rapidly than the one with the low glycemic load. Hence high glycemic load foods should be avoided in hypoglycemia.
