Alcohol

One or two drinks a day will have little effect on your blood glucose lever if you have good control of your diabetes, are free of complications, and drink the alcohol close to or with a meal. But drinking two or more drinks on an empty stomach can cause low blood glucose if you are taking certain diabetes pills or insulin or if you were just exercising or about to exercise.

  • HonuHealth says:

    The liver works hard to get rid of toxins in your body. Alcohol is considered a toxin. So, if the liver works to get rid of the alcohol, it may let blood glucose levels drop to dangerous levels. If you had a choice, it would be best not to drink alcohol.
