Carbohydrate Index

The Carbohydrate Index gives an assessment of your dietary intake of carbohydrates, especially refined carbohydrates and sugars. A diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugars will deplete phosphorus stores and other important co-factors for carbohydrate metabolism. It may also increase serum glucose and serum triglyceride levels.

A high Carbohydrate Index requires a thorough assessment of your dietary consumption of sugars and refined carbohydrates.
