Ways to drink without hurting your health

Diabetes and Alcohol Use

When it comes to alcohol, the key is moderation. Certainly, you do not have to drink any alcohol, and if you currently do not drink, do not start drinking for the sake of your health benefits. Guidelines for moderate alcohol use are:

  • There must be 2 days in a week that you do not drink alcohol
  • In a week, you should not drink more than 7-21 standard drinks (less than 3 standard drinks a day)
  • Standard drinks are
– Wine: 140 cc
– Beer: 330 cc (1 can)
– Spirit 40 degree: 40 cc (1 shot)

Dr. Chattanong said “While moderate alcohols use may offer some health benefits, heavy drinking has no health benefits. Excessive drinking can increase your risk of serious health problems. No one should begin drinking or drink more frequently on the basis of potential health benefits. However, if you do drink alcohol and you are healthy, there is probably no need to stop as long as you drink responsibly and in moderation.”​
