"International table of glycemic index and glycemic load

values: 2002"

The above publication is probably the definitive study for those interested in designing their food intake so as to minimize the risks of developing Hypoglycaemia following a Dumping episode.

Although less well-known the Glycaemic Load (GL) is more useful since it takes into account portion size.

It is worth remembering that a large helping of a low GI food will have exactly the same consequences as a small helping of an high GI foodstuff - it is the total available 'glucose generator' which counts.

Unfortunately it is too large and complex to reproduce here, but it can be viewed at and downloaded from this URI :-
