Diabetics, Alcohol & Heart Disease
The American Diabetes Association reports that "In people with diabetes, light-to-moderate amounts of alcohol are associated with a decreased risk of heart disease, probably because alcohol raises HDL cholesterol, the so-called 'good cholesterol.'"
It also emphaiszes the importance of eating while drinking wine, spirits, or beer.
