    insulin index vs glycemic index






    hello,

    i tried to understand the diffrent between the two indexs, for example:
    if i eat high GI food, so my glucose level raise up and cause of that the insulin will raise up too.
    if i eat high II food, so my insulin level raise up too.

    if i eat a meal that contains high GI - my insulin will raise up
    if i eat a meal that contains high II and low GI - my insulin will raise up

    where is the catch?

    insulin is a storage hormone so any time you eat a food item whether it is a protein, carbodhydrate or fat serum inulin levels will increase.

    some foods that are low GI are high on the II, such as milk. so you can consume a food item that does not have a large effect on serum glucose levels but it does elicit a large insulin response.

    ok thanks, but the thing that i dont understand:

    when the glucose levels raise up in the blood so the insulin level will raise up, am i right?

    so if i eat something that the GI is high - because of that the II must be high
