Alcohol and Diabetes

This area provides information, resources and articles relating to alcohol and diabetes, including diabetic drinking guides for special occasions, carbohydrate charts, and info about drug interactions. Most people with diabetes can drink alcohol safely if they drink in moderation (one or two drinks occasionally), because in higher quantities alcohol can cause health problems.

For most individuals, blood glucose levels are not affected by moderate use of alcohol when diabetes is well controlled.
