A new study conducted in Denmark suggests that drinking alcohol regularly can reduce the risk of developing diabetes. However, before you begin imbibing in the tipsy, the research found that the effects of alcohol on diabetes risks was different for men and women and the type of alcohol consumed played a role in the outcome of preventing the onset of the disease.
The Methodology of the Study
The study was developed to investigate the link between alcohol drinking habits and diabetes risk from the Danish population, including both men and women. The data for the study included 76,484 survey participants (28,704 men and 41,847 women) who were followed for a median of 4.9 years. as part of the Danish Health Examination Survey. Survey respondents self-reported their drinking patterns, including how much and what they drank.
Results of the Study
Surprisingly, the study found that the lowest risk of developing diabetes occurred for survey respondents that consumed moderate amounts of alcohol. Men that drank 14 drinks per week experienced 43% lower risk for diabetes, while woman who consumed nine drinks per week had 58% lower risk. (In the study, drinking amounts were standardized and equaled 12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine, or 1.3 ounces of distilled spirits). However, even light drinkers who imbibed lower amounts of alcohol per week saw their diabetes risks drop.
Of all the types of alcohol to consider consuming for preventing the onset of diabetes, red wine offers the most promising benefit. Studies have shown that the phytochemical compounds found in red wine can help regulate blood sugar levels, preventing the spikes in blood sugar experienced by diabetics.
