Alcohol is the most commonly used recreational drug in Australia and is consumed to varying degrees in a multitude of social and cultural settings. It is estimated that one- in-six people consume alcohol at levels that place them at lifetime risk of an alcohol related disease or injury. The short-term and long-term consequences of alcohol use on physical, psychological and social well-being have been extensively researched and well-documented. However, in people with diabetes, the effects of alcohol may be amplified. Thus, it is imperative for clinicians and people with diabetes to understand the effect of alcohol on the progression and complications of the condition. This article seeks to summarise the current state of knowledge regarding the pathophysiological mechanism of alcohol’s effects on glycaemic management; the impact of alcohol consumption on the management of diabetes and practical tips for managing alcohol use in people with diabetes.
