In October, we discovered that having just one glass of red wine each day with a meal could be beneficial to glucose levels in the blood, although more than one glass of wine could counteract that effect. The research has shown that consuming excess levels of red wine does not have the same benefits as having just one glass of wine per day with a meal and that excess levels of red wine could potentially have an adverse effect on glucose levels in the blood, rather than being beneficial.
Everyone is by now aware of the potential dangers of consuming alcohol. But, can a glass of wine everynight at dinner lead to improved health, especially for someone with diabetes? Researchers at Ben-Gurion University say that the answer to this question is yes, but only if strict guidelines are followed while consuming that alcohol.
