A 48-year-old member asked:

Can drinking alcohol affect diabetes in any way?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jeannine Weiss
Pediatric Dentistry 28 years experience
Yes: Diabetes is not a disease that one should mess with. Certain wines and social cocktails have a lot of excess sugar which can mess with the fine balance of sugar our diabetic patients need to monitor. Always check with your md, endocrine specialist about your beverage of choice so that you can remain social without creating a crisis. Best advice- water or seltzer is your best option.
