Is it safe for diabetics to drink red wine?

Q: I am a 40 years old diabetic. After reading various articles, I have started drinking red wine twice in a month from the last two months. Is it good to drink red wine for a diabetic?

A:Researchers have found that a chemical in red wine believed to help reduce risk for heart disease is a form of oestrogen. The substance, resveratrol, is highly concentrated in the skin of grapes and is abundant in red wine. Moderate consumption of red wine has been widely reported to reduce risk for cardiovascular disease. Some researchers have attributed this cardioprotective quality to the significant amounts of resveratrol naturally present in grape skin. Hence red wine is good wine. DoctorNDTV note: Alcohol in any form, including wine, is high in calories, so moderation is advisable, especially for diabetics.
