Hi.. Any type of alcohol is fatal in diabetes when consumed in heavy amounts. He can take the drink but not more than 2 servings per day. This will prevent unnecessary complications.. Increased alcohol consumption can lead to transient blood sugar levels and followed  by low sugar levels which can some times lead to serious complications. It is  better to restrict and best to avoid the alcoholic drinks...
