    Hi
    I like a drink now and then but beer always sends my sugars sky high ,now I have discovered one drink which does not affect my blood sugars at all, on the ingredients it says made with sugars and sweeteners, but I think why it does not have any effect on my blood sugars,is because there are probably more sweeteners then sugar in the ingredients.
    The drink is Strongbow try it you will be amazed

    At 2.9 grams per 100ml that's 16 grams per pint so pretty much the same as most normal (not low carb) beers unfortunately.

    I too like a beer every now and then. The thing to watch out for with alcohol is that it initially drops your blood sugar levels and then raises them as your body processes the alcohol.
