If you are a diabetic, it is better that you leave the drinking habit completely. already you pancreas is not producing enough insulin which causing sugar to come in blood. If you continue drinking, then alcohol wil damage the pancreas more resulting in worsening of diabetes. Alcohol will also cause other major organ damage.
