    You can do so every minute, but is is not healthy.
    I would say that it will depends greatly on how managable your diabetis is.

    If it is ‘light’ and can be managed with pills, i would say one glas of spirits should not be too much of a problem. I would not risk it if your blood sugar verries a lot, or allready have the more serve side effects of diabetis
