Abstract: 

OBESITY IS A KEY COMPONENT OF METABOLIC SYNDROME. THESE METABOLIC ABNORMALITIES INCREASE THE RISK OF DEVELOPING CHRONIC DISEASES INCLUDING TYPE 2 DIABETES. DIETARY CARBOHYDRATES MAY DIFFERENTIALLY OPTIMIZE INSULIN ACTION AND THEREBY AFFECT THE DEGREE OF INSULIN RESISTANCE, WHICH IS A KEY UNDERLYING METABOLIC FEATURE OF THIS SYNDROME. THE GLYCEMIC INDEX, A MEASURE OF THE GLYCEMIC RESPONSE TO CARBOHYDRATE-CONTAINING FOODS, HAS BEEN USED TO PHYSIOLOGICALLY CLASSIFY DIETARY CARBOHYDRATE. THIS CONCEPT WAS PROPOSED IN 1981 AND SINCE THEN, MANY STUDIES HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED ON THE TOPIC. HOWEVER, CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE GLYCEMIC INDEX REMAINS THE SUBJECT OF DEBATE. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PRESENTATION IS TO EXAMINE THE POTENTIAL ROLE OF GLYCEMIC INDEX IN THE MANAGEMENT OF CARDIO METABOLIC DISEASES INCLUDING DIABETES, OBESITY AND METABOLIC SYNDROME.
