Episode #26 – Alcohol and Diabetes – Part 1

In this episode of the Just My Type podcast, co-hosts Sami (type 1) and Dobie (type 2) talk about an unspoken and taboo topic, ‘Alcohol and Diabetes – Part 1’. Dobie shares his story as to why he doesn’t drink alcohol and never has, while Sami is the typical young adult in the world learning the ways of drinking with diabetes. Sami shares some lighthearted, yet insightful stories of her experiences when she maybe just had one TOO many a couple nights during college. But, Dobie, the non-alcoholic, does not judge and gains some interesting perspective as to how alcohol does not only go south when drunk excessively, but also can be a life or death sentence for those dealing with diabetes. Listen to this episode if you want to hear some funny, but educational stories Sami shares. C’est la vie, baby!

Question of the pod: What is your favorite cocktail or mocktail to drink with diabetes?
