Alcohol Consumption And Risk Of Pre-diabetes And Type 2 Diabetes Development In A Swedish Population.

Abstract AIMS: Alcohol is a potential risk factor of Type 2 diabetes. However, more detailed information on effects of alcohol types and early phases of Type 2 diabetes development seems warranted. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of alcohol consumption and specific alcoholic beverages on the risk of developing pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes in middle-aged Swedish men and women. METHODS: Subjects, who at baseline had normal glucose tolerance (2070 men and 3058 women) or pre-diabetes (70 men and 41 women), aged 35-56 years, were evaluated in this cohort study. Logistic regression was performed to estimate the risk [odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI)] to develop pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes at 8-10 years follow-up, in relation to self-reported alcohol intake at baseline. Adjustment was performed for several risk factors. RESULTS: Total alcohol consumption and binge drinking increased the risk of pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes in men (OR 1.42, 95% CI 1.00-2.03 and OR 1.67, 95% CI 1.11-2.50, respectively), while low consumption decreased diabetes risk in women (OR 0.41, 95% CI 0.22-0.79). Men showed higher risk of pre-diabetes with high beer Continue reading >>

    did drinking too much beer cause my diabetes?

    Does anyone out there know if drinking too much beer in the past may have caused diabetes? I asked my Dr. once and he didn't think so unless I had pancreatitis. As far as I know I never had pancreatitis. Dr. said maybe if you had chronic pancreatitis which has no symptoms, but that is usually for alcoholics. I never considered myself an alcoholic. I definetly overdrank beer many times, (binge drinked) but only beer not wine or hard stuff. I rarely drink now but when I do it seems to lower my blood sugar considerably. Can anyone help me with these questions of alcohol and blood sugar?

    I'm sure if your drinking brought with it behavier that too wasn't healthy such as eating binges following binge drinking. I think it takes a host of lifestyle issues working together that may end with type two. Either way, don't beat yourself up over it as it won't change a thing.
