They are not the same thing, although a high protein diet is low-glycemic by nature, and is also considered a "low-carb" diet. I would reccommend reading up on the low-GI diet and doing your research. The low-GI diet is what I follow, and it has benefits for your health and for weight loss. You can find a lot of great resources through books and online.

You may want to try posting your questions about those types of diets on our Diet and Nutrition forum where our dietitian may be able to see them and respond. Other than that, it would be best to discuss what a good plan would be for your mom. If the doctor doesn't have that info, they can refer you to a dietitian to help you and your mom out with the specific needs that you have.
