Alcohol increases the risk of type 2 diabetes
Moderate alcohol consumption is associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Frequent alcohol consumption increases the risk of diabetes, however, as consuming high quantities of alcohol can cause you to become overweight.
In addition, your fat and carbohydrate metabolism may be impaired and your liver function can deteriorate. You should therefore either drink no alcohol or drink it in moderation (a maximum of half a glass to one glass per day).
