*raises hand* I haven't done an eat-to-the-meter with just nuts but I do eat them with other foods and cannot attribute an unusual BG reading to the nuts. There are, of course, nuts with lower levels of carbohydrates.

Yes Overdrive, Pistachios do the trick for me. A handful (in the shell) doesn't seem to have any kind of affect on my BGs - although as a Type 1, I do have both Long and Short acting insulin in my system at the time I eat them.

If I didn't maybe it would be a different story.

Hi Overdrive, I can eat plain jane pecans (no cinnamon), smokehouse almonds, and peanuts. I measure them out whatever the serving size is, usually 1 oz., but I've never eaten them all together. I've mixed peanuts and almonds when I go to the movies .

Thanks everyone! Nuts seem pretty diabetic friendly.

Nuts are not my friend. I can't just eat a few.

I order almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, and Pistachios all 'in the shell' as this slows how many I eat! Moderate amounts do not spike me...and are good snack food!

I order them from Nuts.com
