Alcohol use carries many health risks, a significant danger among them is developing type 2 diabetes. Alcohol abuse and the disease of alcoholism also contribute to the disease.Heavy alcohol use (with moderate use being defined as one drink daily for women, two a day for men) damages the pancreas, the organ responsible for producing insulin naturally to regulate blood sugar. The more a person drinks, the more damage to that organ and the higher the risk of developing prediabetes, which can lead to type 2 diabetes.

Yes you can but in moderation. Try to limit yourself to one drink if you can. I would recommend a light beer that is lower in carbs.
