THANKS FOR CHOOSING HCM,
IT IS NOT WISE TO TAKE ALCOHOL WHEN YOU HAVE DIABETES
Drinking alcohol in people with diabetes can cause blood sugar to rise. If your son chose to drink alcohol, see that he only drinks it occasionally and when his diabetes and blood sugar levels are well controlled
People with diabetes should follow these alcohol consumption guidelines:
Do not drink more than two drinks of alcohol in a single day.
Drink alcohol only with food. Never drink alcohol on an empty stomach — food slows down the absorption of alcohol into the blood stream
Avoid "sugary" mixed drinks, sweet wines, or cordials.
Mix liquor with water or diet soft drinks.
Diabetics who take medication -- insulin
or oral hypoglycaemic drugs -- run the risk of low blood sugar
levels if they drink alcohol.
Monitor blood sugar before, during, and after drinking alcohol. Remember to check before going to bed.
Don't mix alcohol and exercise — physical activity and alcohol will increase your chances of getting a low blood sugar
Try to educate your son regarding the ill effects of alcohol in diabetic people
and treatment from a psychiatrist
can help him to quit drinking
