Drinking one glass of wine per day is associated with a reduced incidence of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease as well as a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in those with chronic kidney disease

In November 2018 researchers from the USA published the results of their study to assess the association between wine consumption and the incidence of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. Individuals aged over 21 years participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were included in the study. Wine consumption was categorized as none (0 glass per day), light (up to 1 glass per day), or moderate (over 1 glass per day). Results showed that only 27 (0.5%) individuals reported moderate wine consumption, whereas 57.5% reported abstinence and and 42% light wine consumption. Light wine consumption was associated with a lower prevalence of chronic kidney disease when compared to those who abstained. In addition, light wine consumption was associated with significantly lower rates of cardiovascular disease in the general population as well as in individuals with chronic kidney disease.
