Today we’re going to talk about diabetes and alcohol and why they are a bad combo. All it takes is a small amount of alcohol to really throw off your blood sugars in a big way. Sugary wine, cocktails, margaritas, or beer can especially have an effect on your blood sugar levels.

If you’re a prediabetic, alcohol could push you faster into becoming a diabetic. Alcohol affects the cells of the pancreas, and you can lose the function of insulin. If there is a loss of function of insulin, there’s no more regulation of blood sugars. This can cause your blood sugar levels to go up.

Alcohol can also deplete the body of vitamin B1. Vitamin B1 is important to help prevent lactic acidosis, which can occur if you’re a diabetic. One of the potential side effects of Metformin is a vitamin B1 deficiency. Lactic acidosis is a risk factor of Metformin. The higher the sugars (from your blood sugars or from the diet), the more vitamin B1 you may need.

Alcohol can also be created from GMO corn, rice, GMO beet sugar, or other grains.

When you drink alcohol, the stored sugar (glycogen) in your liver will not be as available to you. This could mean that you’re going to need more medication because your blood sugars will not be as regulated. You could also lose the ability to detoxify alcohol if you’re a diabetic. As far as the pancreas, you could have increased or decreased insulin.

A few things you could do:
1. Avoid alcohol
2. Only drink alcohol with meals (if you can’t avoid it altogether)
3. Avoid sugary drinks
4. Take vitamin B1 (nutritional yeast)
5. Try kombucha tea instead as an alternative to alcohol
