It's nice to be back. Been in the mountains for 5 days without cell or internet ! Had a chance to read up on some new knowledge that you should really know : Glycemic Index.
Glycemic Index is the rate at which food will breakdown to glucose and raise sugar levels. It's important for diabetics as per upcoming research. See (Mayo Clinic, Diabetes.org, and Harvard). Why ? : Because you don't want to send your blood sugar levels on roller coaster rides. This is not good for your body, liver or pancreas.
Did you know White Rice will dissolve faster than Table Sugar ?? or that Fructose (fruit based sugar) dissolves a lot slower than table sugar. See my Dad has been told to avoid fruits as he's diabetic but he can eat rice. However, this science says cut down the rice and yes, he can eat fruits and gives a good reason that makes sense to me.
Here's a list of Glycemic Index of many food items from Harvard.
By eating more foods with low Glycemic Index I hope that his sugar levels will maintain and help his body by keeping it away from a glycemic roller coaster :) Expect more on this science as it is quite important for diabetics.
