New international tree nut council study looks at nuts, diabetes and metabolic syndrome
Date:7/31/2014

l in those with diabetes. The PLOS ONE analysis included 12 randomized clinical trials with 450 participants and compared the effects of diets emphasizing tree nuts to isocaloric diets without tree nuts on HbA1c (a marker of longer term blood sugar control), fasting blood glucose, fasting insulin and insulin resistance (HOMA-1R). The results showed that diets emphasizing about two ounces of tree nuts per day significantly lowered HbA1c (P=0.0003) and fasting glucose (P=0.03) compared to the control diets. While neither diet showed significant effects on fasting insulin and insulin resistance, the direction of effect favored tree nuts.

According to Dr. Kendall, "Both of our analyses indicate that daily tree nut consumption has an overall metabolic benefit and can improve risk factors for metabolic syndrome, and glycemic control in individuals with type 2 diabetes."

"With MetS and diabetes on the rise worldwide, this is yet another reason to include tree nuts in your diet every day," states Maureen Ternus, M.S., R.D., Executive Director of the International Tree Nut Council Nutrition Research & Education Foundation (INC NREF). "In 2003, FDA (in its qualified health claim for nuts and heart disease) recommended that people eat 1.5 ounces of nuts per daywell above current consumption levels. We need to encourage peopleespecially those at risk for MetS and those with diabetesto get their handful of nuts every day."
