    5.7 which is a relief after making the mistake of eating a roasted sweet potato last night and spiking to 10 post meal.

    The first glass lowers blood glucose if there are no carbs in it ... because it blocks the liver from producing blood glucose while handling the alcohol

    But the liver can get used to it and will learn over time to work harder if done every day
