Dear GI Group, Hi!

Sorry for posting this again but I think you missed my question in the previous issue:

Do you have any studies planned to assess the efficacy of low GI foods for diet-controlled diabetes? If you have already done some perhaps you could provide a link to your findings.

Additionally do you have a register of interest for such trials?

Thanks again for all your good work.

There have been numerous studies around the world looking at the efficacy of low GI foods for people with impaired glucose tolerance/diabetes/metabolic syndrome and we have reported on several in previous issues in GI News Briefs. Use the search facility to check them out. There's a nice bread study in this issue of GI News - 'By Bread Alone'. You may also like to read Cliff's story and be inspired! We don't have a register of interest at this time.
