    And in another five years there will be another report, another finding, another reason to Do or Not Do this or that, eat this or that.

    I say, if it works, work it.
    To each their own, your diabetes may vary, affects of food/drink will vary too.

    And have some cheese with your wine every now and again. ;-)

    I find that having red wine has the exact opposite effect on me… a few hours after a glass or two my BGs spike!

    Alcohol tends to make my BG go down, but what I’ve read is that it does that because the liver is busy trying to clear the alcohol from one’s system and will not produce glucose. (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes-management/DA00005/NSECTIONGROUP=2) So while I would not use it to try to regulate my blood glucose levels, I do enjoy a glass of wine or beer now & then. (I sure do miss fruity rum drinks, though…too sugary for me now.)
