That led scientists to conclude "consumption of alcohol on three to four days weekly was associated with significantly lower [diabetes] risk in men and women" compared to those who drink one or fewer days a week.
Wine was considered particularly beneficial, probably because it has chemical compounds that improve blood sugar balance, researchers in Denmark found. Drinking 1 to 6 beers per week was associated with a 21 percent lower risk of diabetes in men compared to men who drank less than 1 beer per week, but in women there was no relation.
In the study, the researchers looked at data on more than 76,000 adults who participated in the Danish Health Examination Survey in 2007 to 2008.
"Recommendations for alcohol in this case cannot be taken from a single study with only one outcome, because alcohol is associated with risk of more than 50 different diseases", said Janne Tolstrup, Ph.D., of the National Institute of Public Health in Copenhagen.
Seven glasses of wine a week lowered the risk of diabetes by 25% to 30% in both men and women - compared with having less than one glass.

They found almost 859 men and 887 women who are facing the problems regarding diabetes.
The professor Janne Tolstrup said that as per their findings they found the alcohol drinking frequency associated with the risk of diabetes. "For this reason, we can not say with certainty that alcohol has a protective effect".
There was no connection between binge drinking and diabetes.
However, women should steer clear of the gin because this botanical spirit increases ladies chance of getting diabetes by 83%. The beverage-specific alcohol amount was defined as less than one drink per week, between one and six drinks per week, at least seven drinks per week for women, between 7 and 13 drinks for men and at least 14 drinks per week for men.
Moderate consumption of beer was also linked to lower diabetes risk for men in the study, but not for women. For women across all alcohol frequency groups, wine represented more than half of all alcohol intake.
'When it comes to diabetes, similarly to findings from studies on alcohol and coronary heart disease, it seems better to spread out the alcohol intake on more days as compared to taking the same total weekly amount in a single setting'. "Regularly drinking more than this can increase the risk to your health".
