ALCOHOL AND DIABÈTE

VAHA

 

Alcohol is a major risk factor for NCDs, including mental ill-health.

There is a strong link between alcohol and NCDs, particularly cancer, cardiovascular disease, digestive diseases, and diabetes, as well as mental ill-health.

Alcohol consumption caused an estimated 1.7 million NCD deaths in 2016.

This equals 4.3% of all NCD deaths and 65.5 million NCD DALYs.

 

ALCOHOL AND DIABÈTE

Concerning alcohol and diabetes, the situation is complicated. 

Meta-analysis has confirmed that there is a U-shaped relationship 

between the average amount of alcohol consumed per day and the risk 

of type 2 diabetes.

 

• Chronic heavy alcohol use has been observed to disrupt glucose 

homeostasis and to lead to the development of insulin resistance, 

resulting in a higher risk of diabetes mellitus1
