you can have ginger ale, 3/4 cup, has 15 grams carbs.. 1 1/2 c gatorade, 1/2 cup 7-up, 1 cup milk, 3/4 cup cream soup, 1/4 cup custard, (I am reading from the literature from my diabetes classes I took) it even says 1/2 cup apple juice, and says you can choose a starch, and it lists them, like 1/4 c regular pudding, 1 cup chicken noodle soup, 1/2 cup cooked cereal, 1/4 c. sherbet, 1/3 cup gelatin, 6 saltine crackers, 1/2 c. ice cream they all contain 15 grams of carbs. It says to always take insulin or pills, even if you can not eat. Check with your doctor to see if insulin needs adjustment, ask your doctor or pharmacist whether any over the counter meds you plan to take will affect your blood sugar, many can. Make sure you get enough fluids. If yo have a fever, drink a cup of sugar free decaff beverage each hour.
