In honor of the 4th of July, I figure we could share out worst and/or best times with alcohol as a diabetic. If you feel inclined, you can include tips that help you safely consume alcohol. Be safe this weekend!
Best: Any time I have a cold beverage and there's water to swim in.
Worst: The day after my 21st birthday I couldn't get my blood sugar over 60 until after 5pm. Eventually I realized I needed to do something proactive about it and filled a camelback with gatorade. It seemed to work. I should have been more aware the night before and put some food in my system.
It's 5 O'clock somewhere: Do you know what your blood sugar is?
This thread has potential!
Best: Wheat beer in the summer and dark marzens or porters in the colder months...
Worst: When I run out of the above!
9x - 7i > 9x - 21u
i'm alcoholic... i have so many stories i could tell you...
best: amaretto sours. they just taste delicious.
worst: drinking myself into a coma and having to face my family/friends afterwards.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
