Drug And Alcohol Use With Diabetes

Comprehensive Guide to Research on Risk, Complications and Treatment Substance abuse is described as the excessive use of a substance such as alcohol or drugs that results in significant clinical impairments as well as the loss of ability to function academically, professionally, and socially [1]. An individual who was healthy before the substance abuse began will typically begin to experience serious health problems over time, but extensive damage may be avoided or reversed if effective substance abuse treatment is received.

    Yesterday I went to the doctors to discuss a practical diet plan. I told her that I have been keeping my net carbs under 40, by eating foods high in fiber and low net carb snacks like Quest bars.
