Diabetics May Benefit From Moderate Wine Consumption

JAMA. 2015;314(24):2608. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.16711

Patients with well-controlled diabetes can safely consume moderate amounts of wine and may benefit from an associated modest decrease in cardiometabolic risk, according to a recent randomized clinical trial (Gepner Y et al. Ann Intern Med. 2015;163[8]:569-579).

The 224 trial participants, adults 40 years or older with well-controlled type 2 diabetes mellitus, were randomly assigned to consume 150 mL of mineral water, white wine, or red wine with dinner for 2 years. All the participants followed a Mediterranean diet without calorie restrictions.
