Nutritionally, alcohol is like candy. It metabolizes to pure sugar. It might be more of a problem for your diabetes than it is for your coronary artery disease.
You should ask your doctors whether you need to totally abstain from alcohol or not. Obviously, they know more about the details of your condition -- and, well, they're your doctors.
If your doctors agree for you to take any alcohol, the usual limit is no more than one drink a day for women and no more than two drinks a day for men. Even if your doctors do allow you to drink alcohol, it is better not to drink at all, rather than to drink excessively.
