Nuts are a highly nutritious food that contains many useful healthy unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. It is clear that nuts have a beneficial impact on many cardiovascular risk factors. However, little epidemiological evidence exists regarding the effects of nuts on diabetes risk. Therefore, in order to understand the role of nuts in prevention and management of diabetes, more long-term clinical studies are needed to clarify the possible effects of nuts on diabetes. Nuts have high energy and fat content, and thus have a healthy dietary component. For this reason, regular nut consumption can be recommended to avoid excessive caloric intake above normal requirements.
Key Words: Diabetes mellitus, Nuts, Unsaturated fatty acids
