Regular consumption of walnuts may  help reduce the potential prevalence rate of diabetes by improving  metabolic syndrome risk factors, a study claims. According to the study, published in the journal Nutrition Research and Practice, consuming walnuts may bring positive changes to metabolic syndrome status by increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL)  or "good" cholesterol and decreasing fasting glucose level.

Consuming walnuts daily could contribute to alleviating potential prevalence rate of diabetes by favourably changing hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and circulating adiponectin levels.
HbA1c is the average blood glucose (sugar) levels for the last two to three months.

This study was conducted in the form of controlled crossover trial after randomly dividing 119 of Korean male and female adults (aged 30 to 55 years) with metabolic syndrome into two groups.

Subjects in the first group were instructed to consume 45 grammes of walnuts, and the second group received iso-caloric white bread per day for 16 weeks as snack.

After 16 weeks of clinical trials, both groups had a six-week rest period, having a general meal.

After the rest period, white bread and walnut were cross overly distributed to the first group and the second group, respectively, for 16 weeks intake.

In addition to this, lipid profile, HbA1c, adiponectin, leptin, and apolipoprotein B, as well as anthropometric and bioimpedance data were measured four times throughout the study.
