A glass of red wine daily decreased the risk of developing cardiovascular disease for people with Type 2 diabetes, a new study says.
People with Type 2 Diabetes now have a reason to drink wine. A new study has found that drinking a moderate amount of red wine every day improves heart health and lowers the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, according to CBS News.
People with diabetes are more prone to developing heart disease. They have lower levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), otherwise known as the “good cholesterol,” in their bodies. While red wine was known to bring down blood sugar levels, there had not been enough evidence showing it improved heart health.
