Impact of Peanut and Tree Nut Consumption for Diabetes


See the latest study on peanuts and tree nuts related to diabetes.

A recent study published in Frontiers in Nutrition aimed to examine how consuming peanuts and tree nuts affected the lipid profile in type 2 diabetic patients. Type 2 diabetes is associated with metabolic disorders, especially on the lipid profile, and diet can play a significant effect on blood lipids.
 
To analyze the effect of peanut and tree nut consumption on the lipid profile, researchers performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized, controlled-feeding clinical studies. The authors searched various databases to identify possible studies to include in the review, and in total, 16 studies with 1,041 participants were selected. After analyzing the studies, it was found that peanut and tree nut supplementation did not show a significant change in low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C) in individuals with type 2 diabetes. The results did show that peanut and tree nut consumption significantly reduced total cholesterol (TC) and triglyceride (TG).
 
In conclusion, the systematic review and meta-analysis suggest that including peanuts and tree nuts in the diet may help to reduce TC concentration and TG concentration in people with type 2 diabetes. The authors also conclude that peanuts and tree nuts could be considered as a part of a healthy lifestyle in relation to the management of blood lipids in individuals with type 2 diabetes.
