Hi All just happened upon your site, and found it very interesting. I was at the time I found you, well I was drinking a glass of Shiraz and feeling guilty and afraid at the same time. Good for you all of you, I do agree that red wine should help with your blood sugar readings. I love my wine and also am into alternative medicine. I took my blood sugar down by taking choronium spelt wrong I am 64 yr old female and overweight dont look bad still have a shape but with high blood pressure as well as prediabetes I not great. My problem is when i have a glass of wine it usually ends up two or three. My willpower is not great. I also take cinnamon shri lankan the best.

Alcohol will bring the blood sugar down, however it cause very low sugar.

Hi allied gardens, thank you for your comment. Yes I really believe that a glass of wine will bring your blood sugar down. I have just tested and after a bottle of wine Im ashamed to say my blood sugar level is down but not that low that I have to worry

actually, you should be worried … but then you're a big girl and I am sure you are aware of and willing to accept the consequences

Hi Steve thank you for your comment. And I completely understand where you are coming from. I dont drink during the the week not one drink but now and again on one day at the weekend being tonight I have a glass or two of wine, tonight was unusual but I had a reason, I have a monitor and I watch my blood sugar closely and my blood sugar level reading ten minutes ago was 5.8 and that is after dinner and three small glass of red shiraz wine. There you are, Margaret

Howdy Margaret
WELCOME to DC!
I note you list your monitor reading as 5.8 are you a person from a nation other than the USA which measures blood using the mmol/l scale? If so you might be confused by our mg/dl measurements. There is a converter tool here ~ http://www.onlineconversion.com/blood_sugar.htm You might find it useful.

God's best to you
James

Hi James how are you doing. I am ok. I have ran out of testing strips for the mo so not testing but watching closely what i eat. God it not easy. I really hope I dont become a diabetic it frightens the life out of me. So you would imagine Iwould be afraid to anything wrong.
Well bye for now James take care Margaret

Hi James Yes I am from Ireland. I am 64yrs old and have prediabetes. This frightens me as I know all the diseases you can get. I am also a grandmother and want to enjoy my life. I had a few glasses of shiraz red wine and it seems to bring my blood sugar level down. It mostly is in range an odd time its not. I do stress about it and I am overweight 14st however I am healthy enough. High blood pressure but on medication. You have alot going on God bless you. Margaret
