Glycemic index did not affect CV risk factors, insulin resistance

December 16, 2014

Diets containing foods with low glycemic index of dietary carbohydrate did not help patients with obesity or overweight achieve better insulin sensitivity, lipid levels or systolic blood pressure, according to research published in JAMA.

Choosing specific foods based on glycemic index may not improve cardiovascular risk factors or insulin resistance in the context of eating patterns established in the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH), according to researchers.
