Is the glycemic index misunderstood?

Re: Is the glycemic index misunderstood?

glycemic index is just a very small side-effect of a much bigger problem.

Yes, the "secret" or rather it's rare for the public to ever get a complete picture of what's really going on in health.

The diabetic industrial complex is so completely incompetent, that almost everyone who works in that industry is none the wiser about how to maintain proper health.

In fact, almost *everything* they advise their patients to do is the exact opposite of what they should be doing.

Since, things are unlikely to change, diabetic services continue to meet high demand. Kidney dialysis clinics continue to blossom like flowers in ever increasing numbers. Eyes diseases continue to increase, amputations, circulatory problems and other complications continue to persist (all preventable).

I'll list some of the most egregious lies right here:

Keep your salt intake low (horrible idea, makes blood sugar worse)
Eat low or non-fat (Horrible once again),
Eat low cholesterol, another terrible idea
Take drugs for manage A1c (it will put you much closer to the morgue)
Take insulin (another deep step closer to the morgue)
Take statin drugs (will increase all diabetic complications and shorten your life)

There's no real talk about minerals, much less which ones we need and why.
No talk on which nutrients and/or vitamins we may need either.

Instead of focusing on glycemic index of foods or how many grams of carbohydrates/sugars per day, the following are much better gauges of insulin sensitivity:
(1) maintain low body fat percentage.
(2) avoid calorie surplus, and calorie deficit would be ideal.
(3) size and timing of meals

I have been most successful halting hair loss when at a very low body fat percentage. There are probably contradictory sources online that say having a low body fat percentage is unhealthy, but that has not been true for me. Systemic inflammation is correlated with body fat percentage, as in every percentage point increase is associated with an increase in inflammation.


Chronic inflammation is correlated with percentage of body fat independent of the burden of infection.

Abstract
The aim of this population-based study was to investigate the association of the percentage of body fat (BF) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) when the infectious burden was adjusted for. A total of 1,546 subjects were randomly selected. BF was determined using bioelectrical impedance analysis. Sera were analyzed for IgG antibodies to Chlamydia pneumoniae, herpes simplex virus type 1, Helicobacter pylori, and cytomegalovirus using ELISA. Measurement of C-reactive protein (CRP) by a high-sensitivity CRP assay was performed. A linear relationship between an increase in the number of pathogens and CRP concentrations was observed (p = 0.007). Age-adjusted serum hs-CRP levels were correlated with percentage of BF in men (r = 0.28, p < 0.0001) and women (r = 0.37, p < 0.0001). In multiple regression analyses, hs-CRP showed significant correlations with percentage of BF after controlling for age, sex, cardiovascular risk factors, and the infectious burden was divided into two, three, and four pathogens [(β = 0.24, p < 0.0001), (β = 0.2 1, p < 0.0001), and (β = 0.23, p = <0.0001), respectively]. In conclusion, there was a strong association between hs-CRP and percentage of body fat independent of viral and bacterial pathogens that had been previously associated with coronary artery disease as well as carotid atherosclerosis.

I agree
