Dear Valued Subscriber,

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky.

The Importance of Glycemic Index/Load
bloodsugar 366 million people are living with diabetes worldwide and one person dies every 7 seconds from the disease. Four recent studies highlight the importance of glycemic index/load in reducing risk.

Although lifestyle-induced weight reduction improves insulin resistance in prediabetic individuals, postprandial hyperinsulinemia is reduced only when a low Glycemic Index diet is consumed. In contrast, a high Glycemic Index diet impairs pancreatic and intestinal cell function despite significant weight reduction. These findings highlight the important role of the gut in mediating the effects of a low Glycemic diet on type 2 diabetes risk reduction. AmJCN

A high Glycemic Load diet was a predictor of incident hearing loss, as was higher intake of total carbohydrate. Hence, high postprandial glycemia might be a potential underlying biological mechanism in the development of age-related hearing loss. JNutr

A low Glycemic load diet resulted in longer pregnancy duration, greater infant head circumference, and improved maternal cardiovascular risk factors. Large-scale studies are warranted to evaluate whether dietary intervention during pregnancy aimed at lowering Glycemic Load may be useful in the prevention of prematurity and other adverse maternal and infant outcomes. AmJCN

A lifestyle that includes a low Glycemic Diet can improve metabolic risk profiles in men and women. Prospective studies examining glycemic index, glycemic load, and metabolic syndrome that control for cardiorespiratory fitness are needed. JADA

For a list of glycemic index/load foods, as well as a balanced food plan, refer to the self-help Blood Sugar Balance Action Plan. This plan is free for NCI Well Connect subscribers upon request by emailing

Dr. Schuster's Well Tips
drliloschuster Blood Tests.
My name is Dr. Liselotte Schuster. I have worked with Bonnie Minsky at Nutritional Concepts for over twenty years. Each month, I offer wellness tips from a Chiropractor's perspective. Feel free to email me topics to consider for future segments.

Our office offers many different tests to evaluate your overall health.  We typically recommend a comprehensive blood analysis for an initial consultation and for follow up visits if need be.  Your Medical Doctor can order these tests or our office works with a lab in Northbrook (NICL) to offer a comprehensive profile of a Chem Screen, CBC, Sed Rate, CRP, Ferritin, Thyroid, Vit D and Urinalysis.  Here is Dr. Schuster's brief explanation of this comprehensive analysis.
