A large population of individuals today are not diagnosed with diabetes but have higher blood sugars then what a normal individual would have. This means anyone at risk for developing diabetes has a chance to lower their insulin resistance before it becomes irreversible. Consumption of pistachios lowers blood sugar by reducing the glycemic response to other foods high in carbohydrates. The glycemic response of a particular food or meal is the influence it has after consumption on individuals' glucose levels. Instead of being synthesized in the blood to glucose, the majority of the carbohydrates from the pistachios remain in the food as it passes through the stomach and the lower digestive tract. This effectively gives nutrients and carbohydrates to the individual consuming the pistachios without raising their blood glucose.
