Diabetes and wine both are common in India but today we will know how they are related to each other.You will be surprised to know that Research has found that drinking a small glass of red wine every day can help to treat diabetes.Potent “super-food” compounds found in the wine can work as well as a daily dose of medication for people with Type 2 diabetes.
You will think what is Type 2 diabetes?Is it different from diabetes?Then what is Type 1 diabetes?
Someone has told “Diabetes is a time bomb and a large part of humanity is sitting on it, ready to burst. This is a disease caused by societal progress and lifestyle changes”.
Diabetes is caused by a problem in the way your body makes or uses insulin. Insulin is needed to move blood sugar (glucose) into cells, where it is stored and later used for energy.
If you have diabetes, the amount of blood glucose is too high – a condition called hyperglycemia. This happens for one of two main reasons:
- The body is producing no insulin – this is Diabetes Type 1
- The cells do not respond correctly to the insulin – this is Diabetes Type 2
An estimated 16 million Americans suffer from diabetes, about 95 percent of them from the Type II form of the disease in which the body fails to produce enough insulin to control blood glucose levels or fails to efficiently use the insulin produced.
It is now rightly said that more is the consumption of red wine, better is the health of the people of that country, and lower goes the budget spending on health sector. People must freely enjoy this healthy drink, although not forgetting that the excess of anything is bad.
Here’s a quote by Martin Luther: “Who loves not wine, women and song remains a fool his whole life long.”
