Moderate wine intake may have beneficial effects on blood pressure of type 2 diabetics

A meta-analysis was carried out for randomized interventional trials which evaluated the effect of moderate wine intake on blood pressure (BP), glucose parameters and lipid profiles in T2DM patients.

This meta-analysis showed that moderate wine consumption among type 2 diabetics could reduce the level of diastolic blood pressure and total cholesterol, but not glucose parameters and other cardiovascular risk factors.
