Resercher Emilio Ros said that any beneficial effects on glucose metabolism were shared by all nuts, as they had a general composition with lots of bioactive compounds liable to beneficially affect biological pathways leading to insulin resistance and diabetes.

Researcher Joan Sabate said that there were some indications that eating pistachios on a regular basis lowered fasting glucose, insulin and hormone ratio, which was particularly relevant in pre-diabetic subjects because unless they did a change in lifestyle they would end up being diabetic.
