Moderate alcohol consumption is not harmful when it comes to heart failure in adults: study
Studies at the University of San Luis University School of Medicine suggest a recently diagnosed heart failure that people over 65 years old continued to drink moderate alcohol measures without worsening their condition.
Researchers found data from Cardiovascular Health Research conducted between 1989 and 1993. Medicare reached 5,888. Of these, 393 patients had cardiac insufficiency in nine years.
The average age of 79, fewer than half of the patients with heart disease and 86% were white. Patients were divided into four categories: people who do not drink, people who have been drinking and stagnant in the past, who drink seven or fewer weeks, and drink eight weeks or more per week. The researchers determined a 12-tonne beer for the alcohol service, throwing 6 glass of wine in 6 or 1 ounce liquid.
After investigating the variables of age, sex, race, education, income, smoking, blood pressure and other factors, the researchers found an association that consumed seven or less weekly per week. One-year long survival, compared to long-term abstinence.
Survival at an average of 383 days and between 17 and 748 days. The best benefits of 10 drinks each week may be considered, but in a few cases they will be included in this category so that these data are not sufficient for the final consequences.
"People who develop heart failure later on and never drink would not drink," said Dr. David L. Brown, a university professor of medicine.
"However, our research suggests that taking one or two days before the diagnosis of cardiac insufficiency may cause harm," Brown said, saying the decision should always be consulted by doctors.
The study was published on December 28 at JAMA Network Open.
