The Traveling Nut: Researchers From Around the World Explore the Impact of Almonds on the Body
Date:4/21/2009

mixed nut group compared to the control group.

Lead study author Dr. Kendall from the University of Toronto explained, "These findings build upon previous research which has found that nuts have a beneficial role in impacting serum lipid levels, and interestingly, also suggest that nuts may have value in promoting glycemic control." While follow-up research is needed to explore the impact of nuts on blood sugar levels, this new study reinforces the many potential contributions nuts, including almonds, may have for our diets and health.

Study at a Glance:

Subjects: 120 Non-insulin dependent subjects with diabetes mellitus treated with oral hypoglycemic agents.

Methods: In the three-month parallel study subjects were randomized to receive one of the three treatment groups: 1) Full Dose Nut Diet-raw nuts, including almonds were added to the subjects usual diet based on energy intake. 2) Half-Dose Nut Diet-half-dose of nuts and half-dose of control muffin were provided according to calorie needs. 3) Control: Whole wheat muffins were matched with energy content of nuts provided.

One week diet histories were obtained and fasting blood samples were collected at baseline weeks 2, 4, 8, 10 and 12 to measure cardiovascular risk factors and glycemic control measures.

Results: There were no significant differences in HbA1c between diets, although after the full-dose nut diet there was a significant reduction from baseline in HbA1c levels (p<0.01) compared to the half-dose nut, and the muffin alone. There were significant differences between the full-dose nut group and the muffin group for total cholesterol (p=0.022) and LDL cholesterol (p=0.027).
