    Unfortunately your not doing yourself any favours, the only alcohol that contains little or no sugar is the Low Alcohol type and there aren't many of them abou, your also limited on how much of that you can drink.

    All alcoholic drinks are made with sugar, the likes of beer and lager have a large sugar base when they are brewed, not all of the sugar is natural as in the hops used.

    Shorts are also high in sugar as is wine. You haven't said how much you drink daily but that is none of my business. All I can say is it is possible if you keep drinking daily as you say you do you will never get your diabetes under control, being diabetic is a life changing illness just like someone who has had a heart attack, if you cannot change how you drink, change the way you eat and basically your way of life the concequences can be terrible. Loss of limbs can also happen.

    I'm not trying to scare you I'm being realistic and trying to warn you. Please take care of yourself you can live a very long and fairly normal life if you do as your told to by you diabetic nurses and doctor. Good luck.

    You say you can't stop drinking but actually the truth is that you choose not to - life is all about choices and this is yours.  As long as you are informed about the consequences the rest is up to you.  Good luck with your choices.

    Hi Andy, I'm glad we have helped you even if it's to help you realise alcohol and diabetes doesn't go together.

    if your planning to reduce your drinking please take it slowly and day by day, don't do it fast, thisis never a good idea.

    why not try the odd bottle of either alcohol free lager or reduced alcohol beers, even alcohol free wine is available if that's one of the drinks you like,

    you may decide you can change over eventually. One warning even low

    alcohol drinks if drank in excess aren't good for your blood sugars.
