What is the glycemic index (GI) and why is it important? I just got detected with diabetes last month

glycemic index is the rapidity at which the sugars are absorbed in the digestive tract.It is important to know this as it will help you decide the type of carbohydrate you can have at different situations like for example low blood sugar.
