We are seeing that the disease does not choose, and unfortunately more and those who have several diagnoses. If you belong to this group, and may have less choice of food. This, of course, depends on the type of disease, but such cases are not rare. For example, if you have osteoporosis, while kidney stones, then foods high in calcium that’s perfect for you and your bones will not quite so perfectly comfortable to your kidneys. If you have anemia, you could use green leafy vegetables, but if you have a problem with anemia with blood vessels and a tendency toward increased blood clotting and thrombus formation, then you will have to significantly limit its use. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, you must know that for you useful are legumes and mushrooms as a good source of protein. But if you have gout, then you will have to avoid just these foods. The products are, of course, made from gluten-free grains such as millet, buckwheat and rice.
Glycemic index represents the rate at which increases blood sugar levels after taking certain types of food. The glycemic index is made with respect to glucose, which is GI 100. Thus, according to this table, millet has a GI of 70, making it one of the foods with a high GI. Today it is increasingly used and new concept of ranking foods, so-called. glycemic load, GL (glycemic load). It is believed that GL precise measures of GI as it relates to the composition and quantity of meals to be entered.
Is obtained by multiplying the GI with the amount of carbohydrates that are entered and dividing the result by 100. According to this ranking, values below 10 are low, and 20 mediums and over 20 high. This GL for 100 g of millet is 51. If we reduce the calculation 30 g of millet, which is the equivalent of one portion of grain, to GL of 15.3. This means that 100 grams of millet have a high GL, and 30 g of millet has a medium GL. Therefore, diabetics must take into account the amount of millet, which is represented in the meal.
In addition, it is very important and correct combination of ingredients. Entering foods with low GI foods with high GI reduces the overall GI and so in moderation can consume and foods with a high GI. To simplify things, diabetics can eat millet, but in moderate amounts, and provided that the correct combined. This also applies to products from millet flour.
