The effects of alcohol consumption on diabetic patients are still unclear and inconclusive. Generally, light-to-moderate alcohol consumption (< 3 glasses) may have beneficial effects without disturbing glucose control. However, excessive alcohol consumption may have harmful effects such as hypoglycemia, impaired glucose control, metabolic dysregulation, and increased risk of diabetic complications. This review focused on the relationship between alcohol consumption and diabetic mellitus and effect of alcohol on diabetic patients. Based on previous results, we propose a theory of proper alcohol consumption in diabetic patients.
Key Words: Alcohol drinking, Blood glucose, Diabetes mellitus
