Notes for this study:
In postmenopausal, diabetic women; CLA at 8g daily for 16 weeks was unable to influence parameters of glucose metabolism (almost reaching significance in decreasing glucose) whereas the control, safflower oil, was able to decrease HbA1c levels.

16 weeks of safflower oil was able to slightly benefit lipid metabolism, and nothing was reported with CLA.
