  • *** GLYCEMIC LOAD AFFECT YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE IN proportion?

    say something has a glycemic load of 20 and something else is 50. is the relative difference of it affecting your blood glucose (which affects blood pressure) increased by 30%?

    how much of a difference to your blood glucose (which affects blood pressure) is 10 and 100? seems meaningless.

      Instead of asking these weird and probably pointless questions, why dont you just ask what you really want to know?

        The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

          The difference between a food that has a GI of 10 and one that has a GI of 100 is usually the fat or protein contained in the lower GI food.

          GI is kind of a useless measure. Of course, some people like to create spreadsheets and track useless info. You should probably do that. You might discover some ultimate truth.

            @eKatherine "The difference between a food that has a GI of 10 and one that has a GI of 100 is usually the fat or protein contained in the lower GI food"

            -- ok thanks but that doesn't answer "is the relative difference of it affecting your blood glucose (which affects blood pressure) increased by 30%?"

            @Zach people that aren't very intelligent seem to miss that this IS what we want to know =)

              Then why aren't you doing research on every single food there is instead of asking other people to create and run these experiments for you at their own expense?

                does anyone on this site know the answer? or should i just ask elsewhere. i dont like staying on sites where nobody knows anything and have unhelpful thing to say

                  So does having a name like straving2death.

                  The GI is a useless tool, it serves no point. For blood pressure, it mostly has to do with a mineral imbalance, a cortisol imbalance, insulin resistance, and obesity.

                    well if this is true, which i'll assume, then thanks for clearing this up!!! too much noise in society makes ppl like me ask questions like these....

                    THANKS VERY MUCH. now having validation (since i personally know nothing about this) i can ignore the noise and go on with my life! =)

                      For what its worth, when I eat for example, a steak and egg breakfast, and don't eat all day, by evening, my heart rate has slowed, heart beats much more quietly... I even feel like my blood pressure is back to normal.... Eat high GI food... or any processed carbs, and I have a pounding heart, pressure in my head and dont feel good at all.

                      In my experience, I think that the "GI" of food definitely effects blood pressure.

                        If your question is "What is the percentage difference between 20 and 50, assuming that the highest possible number in this set is 50 and the lowest possible number is 0, than the percentage difference is 60%.

                        I would assume that there is not a mathmatically direct proportional relation to blood pressure.

                          Instead of turning it into academic masturbation on the internet; you could just get off your lazy butt and go cook some food, eat it, and solve your problem.

                          If something has a glycemic load of 20 it delivers 20g of glucose, if something has a glycemic load of 50 it delivers 50g of glucose. Both are high glycemic load. How much does it increase your blood glucose? Individual glucose response differs by individual so we don't really know. We could theorize it increases your blood glucose less. It is interesting to ponder, but entirely academic.

                          Just go eat.
