A study published in Circulation Research revealed that people with type 2 diabetes who ate five servings of nuts weekly had a 34% lower risk of cardiovascular disease mortality, 31% reduced all-cause mortality risk, 20% lower coronary heart disease risk and 17% reduced risk of total cardiovascular disease incidence than those who ate little or no nuts each month. Researchers also found a lower risk of CHD, CVD, CV mortality and all-cause premature death among those who increased their nut consumption after being diagnosed with diabetes, compared with individuals who did not change their nut-eating habits after the diagnosis.
