    did drinking too much beer cause my diabetes?

    Does anyone out there know if drinking too much beer in the past may have caused diabetes? I asked my Dr. once and he didn't think so unless I had pancreatitis. As far as I know I never had pancreatitis. Dr. said maybe if you had chronic pancreatitis which has no symptoms, but that is usually for alcoholics. I never considered myself an alcoholic. I definetly overdrank beer many times, (binge drinked) but only beer not wine or hard stuff. I rarely drink now but when I do it seems to lower my blood sugar considerably. Can anyone help me with these questions of alcohol and blood sugar?
