Can you solve the puzzle? There’s several missing vowels on the board, but the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic would love to make you feel like a winner by helping you learn more about diabetes and diabetes self-care.
Did you know that there are many forms of insulin to treat diabetes? They are classified by how fast they start to work and how long their effects last. The answer to this puzzle is: GLYCEMIC INDEX.
Why not “laugh a little, learn a lot” with Divabetic games? GLYCEMIC INDEX is a numerical Index that ranks carbohydrates based on their rate of glycemic response (i.e. their conversion to glucose within the human body). Glycemic Index uses a scale of 0 to 100, with higher values given to foods that cause the most rapid rise in blood sugar. Pure glucose serves as a reference point, and is given a Glycemic Index (GI) of 100.
Glycemic Index values are determined experimentally by feeding human test subjects a fixed portion of the food (after an overnight fast), and subsequently extracting and measuring samples of their blood at specific intervals of time.
