The lamentable Daily Fail has an article online claiming that “Glass of red wine a day ‘treats diabetes by helping body regulate blood sugar levels'”. This dog is partial to lapping away at the odd bowl of wine and so was very pleased to see this reported. However, Diabetes UK has pointed out the claim is complete cobblers, saying
‘The researchers have made an astonishingly bold suggestion based on the results of their research suggesting that a very small glass of red wine may be beneficial to people with Type 2 diabetes. This assumption is fundamentally wrong based on the evidence presented from this research.”
However, despite the study being cobblers and relating only to type two, this dog is going to carry on its important research into the effects a nice glass of Merlot has on this type one diabetic.
