Abstract:Type 2 diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions in many Western countries. Though a multifactorial disease, diet and lifestyle are often major aetiological factors in the development of type 2 diabetes. It is accepted that modifications of diet and lifestyle will play a major role in preventing type 2 diabetes. The usefulness of the glycaemic index and glycaemic load in managing type 2 diabetes is discussed. It is concluded that the evidence regarding the usefulness of the glycaemic index and glycaemic load is equivocal, with their most effectual role being limited to preventive measures.
