About this PDF

As part of the research spotlight series on WholisticMatters, “Oat Intake and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and All-Cause Mortality” summarizes the associations between oat intake and type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and all-cause mortality. Oats are highlighted for their fiber content, specifically beta-glucan, and high consumption has been shown to have positive effects on several metabolic measures. However, the association of oat intake and disease outcomes remains inconsistent.

This infographic was created from research published in the 2021 Nutrients article “Oat Intake and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and All-Cause Mortality: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis”. Data from eight unique studies were pooled to calculate the relative risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or all-cause mortality. High oat intake was associated with decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes as well as lower risk of all-cause mortality in both men and women, but there was no significant association between oat consumption and cardiovascular disease.
