Re: [IP] A Toast!
Mixed drinks are generally high in sugar. Be careful. I tend to notice
that I need to give very little insulin compared to the amount of sugar
in the drink (some sort of reaction to the alchohol.) I have, however
noticed that if I have more than 1 drink I will need a snack later in
order to prevent going low later in the evening. Your mileage may
vary. I drink very little, so someone else may have more experience.
