Type 2 diabetics drink to their health
Diabetic wine drinkers can now toast their health, according to a study that shows they have much less chance of dying than non-drinkers with the disease.
The study shows they have a 23% lower risk of dying from all causes, and a 22% lower risk of a heart attack, than diabetic abstainers.
That's even better than moderate drinkers of other types of alcohol with type 2 diabetes, who have 13% less chance of dying than abstainers and a 17% lower risk of cardiovascular events such as a heart attack.
The study does not prove alcohol lowers the risks, only that those who drink have a lower risk, says
