Study Says Pistachios Could Help Reduce Diabetes Risk

(Undated) -- Eating pistachios could help prevent type 2 diabetes. Researchers in Spain studied people with higher-than-normal blood sugar levels. Such people have what doctors call pre-diabetes. Those who ate about two ounces of pistachios a day showed significant drops in blood sugar and insulin levels, along with improved insulin and glucose processing. The study is reported in the journal "Diabetes Care."
