Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

glycemic index is a number associated with a particular type of food that indicates the food's effect on a person's blood glucose (also called blood sugar) level. The number typically ranges between 50 and 100, where 100 represents the standard, an equivalent amount of pure glucose

glycemic load is a classification of different carbohydrates that measures their impact on the body and blood sugar. The glycemic loaddetails the amount of carbohydrates a food contains and its glycemicindex, a measurement of its impact on blood sugar

experts use the glycemic index in blood sugar assesment  since  it indicates the persons blood sugar levels. 

thank you
