Like "The good news is you absolutely can partake in festivities...however...in moderation (i have come to hate that word lol)...ADA agrees with this provided your BS control is already good...When you drink however you are at risk for "hypoglycemia" so you should never drink on an empty stomach and remember too it takes two hours for just one ounce of alcohol to metabolize and leave your system...Consider a 2 drink max per day for a man, and one for a woman (Boo! lol)...So basically your lookin at 1 beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits...Not exciting...and not written in stone...so i think whatever you do drink you really savor it and take it slow....but atleast you dont have to say no :)"
