The problem with alcohol for diabetics isn't just the carbs. While on the one hand it's busy increasing your blood sugar, it can also cause your blood sugar to plummet--because while your liver is processing out the alcohol, it stops doing other regular tasks, including releasing stored glucose. So what it really does is make blood sugar levels extremely unpredictable, and if you say to yourself, "this beer equals 6.5g carbs, therefore I'll take this much insulin" you could put yourself into a diabetic coma if your blood sugar actually went down with the beer instead of up.

Also, alcohol increases the risk of nerve damage in diabetes, and interferes with oral diabetes meds like metformin. It's just a super dangerous combination, especially for someone who is still trying to get their BGL stable.

Right beer is bad, that's why I wash down my Metformin with Everclear 190 and diet soda.

I used to be aware of an adage for drinking with diebeetus.

If you have to drink, don't drink beer, drink wine (or liquor, whichever). And (whatever the other one is) is better than (whatever the former is).

Anybody know what I'm talking about?

Being patronized about (irrelevant) basic healthcare by automated message whilst on interminable hold to a healthcare provider because they can't answer a really fucking simple question.

Slight tangent:

My urologist couldn't tell me how Flomax works.

Told me it was a good question.

now the question is: how many times will they tell you about the benefits of getting your children vaccinated with MMR before they come back with an answer?
