This is the first in a series on research into low carbohydrate diets. The glycemic index is the impact on blood sugar by food. Glycemic load measures the impact of a meal. The daily load of glycaemia would cover and totalize all foods during the day.
Nutritionist interviewers use standardized software (NDSR – Nutrition Information System for Research) to find matches with food. After the food pairings are made, the glycemic index must be calculated. This is done using other standard databases (the International Table of Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load Values ​​and online databases of the University of Sydney).
After finding these data, the calculations must be made. Then you should calculate the frequency and amount of food eaten. The findings were blinded and replicated. It was found that repeated calculations had a high correlation.

About Dr. Brewer: Dr. Brewer started as an emergency doctor. After seeing too many patients dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He then went on to direct the postgraduate (residency) training program in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins. From there, he made a career in the practice and management of preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His last role in this area was the Medical Director of Premise, which has more than 500 primary care / prevention clinics. He was also the Medical Director of MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a clinic for the prevention of heart attacks, strokes and diabetes.
At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack, stroke, disability, cancer and Alzheimer's prevention. We found a large amount of type 2 diabetes not diagnosed. The treatment of unrecognized risk factors such as diabetes allows risk reduction. We offer state-of-the-art genetic tests, images, laboratories and telemedicine options. We serve patients who have already experienced an event, as well as those who have not developed a diagnosis or event. Our team of high level clinical practitioners includes internationally recognized leaders in the research and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, preventive medicine and well-being. We also provide preventive medicine through telemedicine technology to more than 30 states. Contact Dr. Brewer at info@prevmedheartrisk.com or visit
