thanks in advance

Numerous double blinded control group clinical studies individuals who are suffering from diabetes that have consumed Balins capsules for the treatment of diabetes in accordance Balins capsules official consumer instructions daily have shown, that the subjects evinced absolutely no side-effects

Stay away from rum and brandy--they are sweeter liquors. Vodka and gin are good. I've noticed that wine has a tendency to lower my blood sugars. This can sometimes be a good thing, but it's something to definitely keep an eye on, so you don't go too low.

If you don't like martinis, though, then vodka and gin won't really be too helpful, as they don't really mix well with things (other than gin and tonic) that are sugarless. Most bars don't carry diet sprite, or anything like that.

Whiskey's harsh, but if you do something like a jack and diet coke, then you should be okay.

I've been a juvenile diabetic for about twenty years now, and wine has always been my drink of choice, usually white wines. If I drink one or two, I don't have any problems. More than that, and I have to give less insulin at the end of the night, so as not to go low while I'm sleeping.

Alcohol is fine for diabetics even beer as it tends to lower their blood glucose level for the first few times you drink something then keep an eye on your glucose levels so you know how that drink will affect you. I am a diabetic and enjoy the odd drink or 2 and have drunk all of the above at sometime or the other with no ill effects (not all at the same time lol) be careful what you mix with them use diet sodas and stay away from to much fruit juice or regular sodas

From the list you provide, wine, particularly red wine, seems to have some benefits. Of course, you'd still need to take into account how much you're drinking, and the effects it can have on a person. (If you drink a lot, you're more likely to become lax at testing your blood glucose (sugar) levels, so you won't know how it's affecting them.)

Alcohol LOWERS your blood sugar.
Do not count these carbs.
Always eat and check your sugar when drinking.

I don't know if this is common but I find that when I drink hard liquor with some kind of diet soda it lowers my sugar level. Even if it is not on an empty stomach. I don't know if it is the same with you but I would watch my sugar level closely.

Yes, you can. Never drink on an empty stomach because beverage does have calories. If you are struggling with your weight as part of diabetes, be sure to pay attention to this. It is suggested to stick with simple drinks such as beer or wine instead of mixed drinks. This can seriously affect the turn of sugar in the drink. If you use insulin, keep your beverage up to two drinks a day.
This is how a drink should be measure:
-12 ounces of beer
-1.5 ounces of 80 proof spirits
-5 ounces of wine
Intoxication and hypoglycemia often hit the same symptoms. It’s best to enjoy your drink with someone who knows your condition, safety first. Be aware if you taken any medication that is not suitable for your drinking session. You should check with your doctor before you consume any alcoholic drink. It's best to check with them, ask them whether is it right for your condition to get a drink or two? Better be safe than sorry. Hope this relieve you a little :-)

Five scotch-waters will put me in the bottom of my closet with my nighty on backwards. Red wine is OK, but no more than two glasses. White wine is like lighter fluid. Rum--went to the Bicardi rum factory in Puerto Rico. Never got off the barge. O'Douls cold is good. Good luck. I hope they give me your heart!
