Methods

This study was a review of randomized controlled trials that assessed glycemic control with nut consumption. Authors examined a total of 40 studies with 2,832 participants and looked at both peanuts and tree nuts.

Key Findings

Consumption of peanuts or tree nuts significantly decreased insulin resistance and fasting insulin. Authors suggest that future studies look at the mechanisms behind this finding as well as other measures.
