College Diabetes Networks Creates New Booklets For Students And Parents

If you’re familiar with me or my blog, then you probably know about my history with the the non-profit organization College Diabetes Network (CDN). I went from attending meetings as a member, to leading them as chapter president, and now I participate as much as possible as an alum. This incredible organization’s mission is to provide innovative, peer-based programs which connect and empower students and young professionals to thrive with diabetes. Over the years, CDN has grown into a full-blown network with chapters at colleges and universities across the country. As CDN has flourished, the hard-working team at its Boston headquarters has established numerous tools and resources for use by young adults with type one diabetes. Recently, the Off to College Event Hosting Guide (OTC Guide) received an exciting revitalization to better address the need for information to help incoming college freshmen. The OTC Guide is a step-by-step guide for individuals who want to hold an event to prepare high school students with diabetes for the transition to college. Initially, Lilly Diabetes provided a grant that made it possible for CDN to create 200 Event Hosting Kits with the guide, broch Continue reading >>

    How has alcohol affected your glucose levels? When my blood sugar is managed, is it ok to have an occasional beer? I'm recently diagnosed as Type I and I know I have to be extremely cautious with it but I want to know what could happen.

  2. ABLA7

    When my blood sugar is managed, is it ok to have an occasional beer?
    Yup. Totally. Doing so right now with dinner.
    If you're planning on having more than 1-2, realize that alcohol will impair your liver's ability to release sugar, meaning it can cause a surprise low 4-6 hours down the road. Test frequently and see how your body reacts.

  3. TheLonelyScientist

    Thank you so much. It's only been a month, but I loved beer before I was diagnosed. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to enjoy them anymore.
    Another question: Do you know why it makes your glucose drop instead of rise?
