Sugar-free Drinks For Diabetics – Non-alcoholic And Alcoholic

Diabetes complicates everything about your life, and choosing the right drinks is no exception. There’s some scientific controversy about artificial sweeteners…some studies suggest that artificially sweetened drinks significantly raise the risk of diabetes, which has implications about diabetics and things like diet sodas as well. So what can diabetics drink safely? Your best bet: Water Hydration is not the only reason to drink plenty of water. Dehydration stimulates the liver to produce more blood sugar, so drinking less than 16 ounces – two cups – per day will result in higher blood sugar. Experts recommend six to nine cups per day. That may sound like a lot, but you can change it up with a squeeze of citrus or a sprig of mint. You may even substitute unsweetened tea. Tea comes in a huge variety of flavors and have tons of health benefits. Black and green teas are loaded with antioxidants, and black teas are highest in polysaccharides, a compound that helps regulate blood sugar.

    i remember reading in atkins book (92 version) that if the urine is dark then your in ketosis...well, my urine was dark until today..and maybe other days it may be dark but once or twice it isn't...if someone is in ketosis is it always dark? does that mean i'm not in it anymore? i've been wondering if i may have fallen out of it by hitting 30 carbs daily here and there. it's my TOM this week so my weight hasn't changed AT ALL, 2 weeks now. this happened last month where there was no weight change for 2 weeks during the pms time but the following week i caught up to lose my 15 pounds a month goal....if any one has suggestions or ideas on this subject i'll gladly appreciate it...
    thanks

    I dont know about dark urine. My urine is never dark because I drink large amounts of water and I am certainly in ketosis. Darker urine, from what I understand, is a sign of dehydration. Perhaps you are thinking of a darker reading on a ketone strip?

    no, i never have used the strips. i do remember reading that there are two ways of telling if your in ketosis if you don't use the strips, one was the color of urine and the other was the low carb 'bad breath'..i drink 80 oz of water a day, sometimes only 60-70 so i don't think i'm dehydrated...
