    Nuts control Type 2 Diabetes

    Replacing some carbohydrates with 2 ounces of nuts daily could control blood glucose levels and lower LDL's. This approach was not associated with weight gain.

    That sounds promising. Only a small study (117 subjects total), but perhaps it'll be repeated on a larger scale some day.

    Yes, a small study. Wouldn't have posted, but these are published from refereed journals, so worth mentioning.

    Actually, I know some people whose doctors have had them doing this for years. Perhaps this is something diabetes docs know from experience, and now researchers are checking it out?

    Anyway. I am a science geek

    I'm glad you posted it. I recently found out I'm borderline Type 2, and I'll gladly try this (in addition to the traditional diet & exercise recommendations) if it'll keep me off meds.

    Jenkins and his colleagues provided three different diet supplements to subjects with Type 2 diabetes. One group was given muffins, one was provided with a mixture of nuts including raw almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, peanuts, cashews, and macadamias, and one group was given a mixture of muffins and nuts.
    It's not a big surprise that muffins won't do much to improve Type2 Diabetes, is it?
