Hello all, I became insulin dependant in Jan 2012 as my pancreas was removed. I was not diabetic before then, so this is all new to me. I'm learning how to manage the day to day carbs/insulin ratio and am doing a reasonable job with my Levemir/NovoRapid regime. My social life is suffering at the moment though as I am scared of drinking due to all that I have read about the raised risk of hypo. I am happy to stick to spirits (vodka/rum/JD) with diet cola when I start drinking again socially. I'm not a heavy drinker. Just 1 or 2 to feel like i'm fitting in with the crowd. I know drinking will affect everyone differently. I am a 34yr old male, 61kg/9st, and have a healthy diet. Is there anyone out there of a similar build, who has experience of being T1 and drinking similar to that above? If so, can you tell me how drinking affects your BG. i.e. how much it drops by, and how much later after drinking does your BG fall? Even if you are not a similar build I would appreciate hearing your experience. Thanks all Richard.
