Is Fish Consumption Associated With a Decreased Risk of Death Among Adults With Diabetes?

In this study researchers surveyed 1,136 individuals with diabetes who took part in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994, to determine the beneficial impacts of fish consumption on cardiovascular diseases (CVD).

Results indicated that a high consumption of fish was related to a low risk of dying from CVD, especially, stroke, among adults with diabetes. They also found that compared with patients eating fish less than once a week, those eating fish 2+ a week had 70% lower stroke death rate.
