Moderate consumption good for kidneys

A small glass of wine a day is good for your kidneys and can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, new research has found.

As reported by Fox News, researchers at the University of Colorado have linked moderate wine consumption with a lower prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD).

The study also found that moderate wine drinking on the part of those suffering from chronic kidney disease resulted in a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

The researches analysed the wine intake of the 5,852 participants and found that CKD was lower in people who drank less than one glass of wine a day, compared to non-drinkers.

“Kidney disease shares common risk factors with cardiovascular disease, and previous studies have shown that wine consumption has an association with lower risk of cardiovascular disease in the general population,” author of the study, Dr. Tapan Mehta, told Fox News.

According to Dr. Beth Piraino, president of the National Kidney Foundation, the study will lead to increased research into the relationship between alcohol consumption and kidney disease.

“People have this idea that alcohol is forbidden when you have chronic kidney disease, but it’s really in moderation,” she said.

Researchers were not able to differentiate what type of wine was consumed by participants, but more people were found to drink red wine than white.
