I've known I'm T1 diabetic for, oh, two months? While I understand I need to proceed with caution, there are a few things I'm ready to work back into my daily life... One of those things being alcohol.
One of my diabetic educators said to start with just one drink at a time (and that, officially, that's all I really should drink!), to eat something first, and to cover the carbs in the drink.
I'll follow her "official" advice, but I'm curious what your habits are. Like, I've read that some people don't cover the carbs in their drink. And eventually, I'm going to want to drink enough to get tipsy! How do you handly party-style drinking as opposed to one-glass-of-wine-with-dinner dinking?
(And I'm thinking of starting with one light beer, like Corona Light, incase that helps with any specific advice. My other most common drinks are red wine or spiced rum with diet coke.)
