New York: Regular consumption of alcohol may lead to long-term weight loss in people with diabetes, say, researchers. The study, led by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, showed that losing weight can help prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. Obesity is known as one of the leading risk factors for developing diabetes. “Patients with Type 2 diabetes who are trying to lose weight should be encouraged to limit alcohol consumption,” said lead investigator Ariana M. Chao, Assistant Professor from the Univeristy’s Department of Biobehavioural Health Sciences. The study suggests that alcohol consumption may attenuate long-term weight loss in adults with Type 2 diabetes. (IANS)
