The following points are a useful summary of everything you should have learned in this section:
Maintaining steady blood glucose levels requires finding a good balance between alcohol, food, activity levels and insulin.
There is no substitute for checking your blood glucose levels regularly and working out what to do to achieve that balance. You should check it before you start drinking, halfway through the night, after you get home and the following morning.
Remember, alcohol can cause delayed low blood glucose levels even a few hours after you’ve stopped drinking, so factor this in. For further information have a look at this detailed guide for type 1 diabetes and alcohol.
