3. You Must Avoid All Alcohol
It isn’t just diabetics who should watch their consumption of alcohol, but caution should be used when consuming any intoxicating substance. Fortunately for diabetics, the common belief that complete abstinence from alcohol is required is false.
Diabetics can relax with a glass of wine, beer, or whiskey as long as they do not consume more than the recommended servings and monitor their blood sugar for 24 hours after consuming alcohol. Experts suggest that women drink no more than one alcoholic beverage per day and men drink no more than two drinks.
