High Glycaemic Load Diets Increase Type 2 Diabetes Risk, A Large Global Study Confirms

9 Apr 2024 • Diets with a high glycaemic index and a high glycaemic load were associated with a higher risk of incident type 2 diabetes in a multinational cohort spanning five continents.

Over a median follow-up of 11.8 years, higher GI and GL diets were significantly linked to increased diabetes risk, with the highest quintile of GI showing a hazard ratio (HR) of 1.15 and GL at 1.21 compared to the lowest quintile.

Notably, the association between GI and diabetes risk was stronger in individuals with higher body mass index (BMI).

Consuming low glycaemic index and low glycaemic load diets might mitigate the development of type 2 diabetes.
