Adults Needed for Almonds and Diabetes Risk Study!

Study Overview

Researchers at Purdue University are looking for adults with high blood sugar levels to take part in a study to understand how adding almonds to your diet has effects on longer-term blood sugar control.
This study will look at a normal compound in your blood called hemoglobin A1c, which is a strong predictor of diabetes risk.   
Your participation may help researchers learn more about whether eating almonds helps people manage diabetes risk.
