Lately I have tried 1 or 2 oz of dry red wine with meals. Would a nite cap of 1 or 2 oz add any benefit to the prandial 1 or 2 oz?

You asked: "What specifically are "dry" red wines?"

Basically, not sweet. In the whites styles such as Chablis or Sauvignon Blanc, in reds styles such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz/Syrah and many others. If in doubt ask your wine merchant.

"I am in the US and I have seen Australian wines here - is there a brand you particularly like?"

There are too many to list. As I'm a cheapskate with champagne tastes on a beer budget I tend to buy cleanskins. I usually only get the more expensive wines by dropping hints around Christmas and Birthdays. If I had to choose only one brand then it would probably be Penfolds. Their range is enormous, from quite a few at the lower end (quite drinkable) to stars like Bin 389, Bin 707 and Grange Hermitage if you are extemely well-heeled.

"What do you recommend for someone who likes sweet drinks?"

Don't drink wine :-)

If you must have a sweet wine, such as sauternes or other sweet whites, or a red dolcetta, treat it like any other food the first few times. Have a glass, then test about 30 minutes later to see what it did to your blood glucose levels.

I am totally clueless about wine in general - although I know a few brands and types I like (naturally, the sweet ones !). What specifically are "dry" red wines ? I am in the US and I have seen Australian wines here - is there a brand you particularly like ? What do you recommend for someone who likes sweet drinks ?

Thanks for your diligent reply Alan. I follow a low carb diet (40g of net carbs excluding Fiber) and that has kept my A1c at 5.0. I do workout at Gym thrice a week.

Anyway Thanks for your advice and time.

Best Regards,

Venkat, I would urge you NOT to consider adding red wine to your menu.

Your ideological reasons are sufficient to counsel against it. I can think of nothing worse than having to drink wine as a medicine.

I have not done any consistent research into wine's affect on A1c; there are too many other variables in my menu to single it out.

Your A1c is excellent, far better than most type 2s. Continue to do whatever you are doing now.

Cheers, Alan

Alan, Thanks for posting this article on Dry Red Wine and its benefecial effects on your Type II diabetes.

Personally for me being a Type II diabetic, I am considering taking wine to get my Glucose into control. My A1c is 5.0 as of Apr 2009.

Can you let me know what was the benefit in terms of Blood Glucose control? Did you see any reduction in A1c values? If so by how many points?

Though I am ideologically against consuming alcohol, I am ok if that need to be consumed as a medicine.

Thanks and expecting your reply.

Venkat

Don't you know, coffee and red wine have to be bad for you. Everyone will as the first thing, regardless of your health problem, wisely advise you to reduce coffee and alcohol consumption. And so you can quote studies not supporting this advice, as soon as they do the right one, I know it will say, no coffee, no red wine.

ps favorite place in house is visit to wine cellar, second only to coffee maker
