More Wine Please

Many research studies have pointed out the positive effects of drinking wine. These positive effects include; improved heart health, antioxidants, lower cholesterol levels and even a boost in brain powers of women (sorry fellas). Here is another study reported by the Los Angeles Times about the benefits of wine, specifically for type 2 diabetics.

The Los Angeles Times (10/13, Healy) reports in “Science Now” that according to the 224-participant study published online Oct. 12 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, “red wine drinkers also saw improvements in their apolipoprotein a1 levels,” and, “compared with study participants who drank mineral water nightly and those who had a glass of white wine,” people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) “who drank a glass of red wine nightly also had fewer symptoms of metabolic syndrome (hypertension, excess abdominal fat, high blood sugar and abnormal cholesterol levels) at the end of two years.” Notably, all study participants “maintained a Mediterranean-style diet” throughout the study, and the amount of wine consumed, which was “no more than a single five-ounce serving per day,” was enjoyed with a meal.

Moderation is key. A little bit of wine can be good but too much may lead to serious problems. To gain the benefits of good health, do your part to enjoy your one to two drinks per day at mealtime and follow the advice of the dietary guidelines for food, fitness, and weight management.

We Care so ICare

Do you dread the “air puff” test at the optometrist?

If the answer is yes, you are not alone. Many of my patients’ dislike the air puff test just like you. After much debate and research, Bright Vision Optometry will offer something different and new to measure your eye pressures. The inconvenient air puff method is not longer needed.

Let’s introduce the icare tonometer:

This new instrument uses an unique, rebound patented technology, in which a very light, small probe is used to make a momentary contact with the front of the eye. The measurement is quick, painless and barely noticed by the patients. Most importantly, many credible publications have reinforced the accuracy of the icare tonometer. Personally, I used this instrument at the California CareForce Coachella Valley health clinic this year. From 3 year old kids to 80 year olds, everyone was very receptive of the icare tonometer. Check out the video below.
