Red Wine Can Lower Blood Sugar


… MORE BENEFITS OF HAVING A GLASS OF RED WINE WITH YOUR DINNER. A NEW STUDY FINDS RED WINE CAN IMPROVE THE CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH OF PEOPLE WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES. MARLIE HALL TAKES A LOOK AT THE RESEARCH. 51-YEAR-OLD GARRET RUBIN SAYS HE HAS TO WATCH OUT FOR EVERYTHING IN HIS DIET SINCE BEING DIAGNOSED WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES. FATS AND SALT AND SUGAR. NOW A NEW, LARGE STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE SAYS A DAILY GLASS OF RED WINE MAY ACTUALLY HELP PEOPLE WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES. 1 TO 2 GLASSES OF RED WINE FOR MEN AND UP TO ONE GLASS OF RED WINE FOR WOMEN, DAILY, AT DINNER, OVER A TWO YEAR PERIOD, RESULTED IN LOWER BLOOD SUGAR AND A DECREASED DEVELOPMENT OF HEART DISEASE. RED WINE ALSO MODESTLY INCREASED LEVELS OF HDL, OR GOOD CHOLESTEROL AND LOWERED OVERALL CHOLESTEROL. DR. MINISHA SOOD SAYS RESEARCHERS HAVE KNOWN FOR A WHILE MODERATE AMOUNTS OF ALCOHOL ARE FINE FOR DIABETICS, BUT THE JURY WAS OUT ON WHICH KIND OF ALCOHOL HAD THE MOST BENEFIT. ITS THE PHENOLS, ITS THE RESVERATROL, ITS THE TANNINS, THEY ALL WORK TOGETHER WITH THE ETHANOL POSSIBLY TO RESULT IN THESE POSITIVE CHANGES. RUBIN SAYS DIET, EXERCISE AND MEDICATION ARE STILL HIS FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE, BUT NOW NOW, SINCE I HAVE A CHOICE, I THINK RED WINE MIGHT BE THE THING. MARLIE HALL, CBS NEWS, NEW YORK.
