Episode #27 – Alcohol and Diabetes – Part 2

In this episode of the Just My Type podcast, co-hosts Sami (type 1) and Dobie (type 2) continue their ‘spirited’ (pun intended) discussion about ‘Alcohol and Diabetes – Part 2’. Except this time, Sami and Dobie discuss the physiology behind alcohol and HOW it affects blood glucose levels. Sami jumps right into sharing the metabolic rate alcohol is absorbed, and points out some excellent drink options to prevent spikes or severe low blood sugars (not to be confused with Salty Sugars – another episode, go check it out). Tequila soda with lime juice? DUH. Low carb, low sugar, low calorie. A perfect combination. Tune in to hear more about WHY alcohol and diabetes are so codependent. C’est la vie, baby!

Question of the pod: What is your best tip for drinking with diabetes?
