In brief: Small amount/large

Drinking small amount of alcohol may be alright, but if you drink too much it can lead to a serious condition called lactic acidosis, which can be life threatning, discuss with your doctor how much you can drink it will not lower your blood sugar, and may raise it as alcohol is carbs.
