Moderation: Assuming that you mean alcoholic beverages, these have special risks in people with diabetes. It has been generally recommended to drink no more than 1 or 2 alcoholic drinks per day, but you should consult your physician first. There can be an increased risk of low blood sugar with alcohol use. See this link for more info: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/alcohol-and-diabetes/my01138.
