The J-shape effect of alcohol intake on the risk of developing acute coronary syndromes in diabetic subjects: the CARDIO2000 II Study.
 
CONCLUSIONS: Alcohol intake is a significant predictor of coronary events. Low-to-moderate intake seems to be associated with a reduction in the prevalence of ACS in diabetes, whereas higher consumption is associated with an increase in lipids and blood pressure levels, and also the risk of developing ACS.
