An article in the U.S. News and World Reports discusses the relationship of insulin and insulin resistance to cardiovascular disease, cancer, ovary disease and Alzheimer's disease (read article).

A low glycemic index diet offers many health benefits including a low fasting insulin level.

 
  Glycemic Index
 
 

The Glycemic Index is a scale that ranks carbohydrates by how much they raise blood glucose levels compared to glucose or white bread.

When you eat food that contains carbohydrates, the sugar (glucose) from the food breaks down during digestion and your blood glucose level rises. The speed at which the food is able to increase your blood glucose level is called the "glycemic response."

This glycemic response is influenced by many factors, including how much food you eat, how much the food is processed or even how the food is prepared.

Foods that raise your blood glucose level quickly have a higher GI rating than foods that raise your blood glucose level more slowly.

In general, the lower the rating, the better the quality of carbohydrate in terms of impact on your blood sugar and your health.
