drinking excessively is going to be bad no matter what.....
but directly regarding insulin....here's a story about a study
Sorry I can't answer your question. If you haven't already check out the American Diabetes Association website they should be able to help.
My sister also drinks a lot but she's doesn't check her levels too often.
Is he drinking excessively, or just drinking?
As long as he watches his sugars, the beer doesn't have much impact on diabetics.
Yes, it lowers our sugars levels, but once you know by how much, how long etc.. There's nothing intrinsically bad about beer that'll make him ill.
I'm on a novarapid and Lantus reigime, 5 inections a day. I drink whiskey mostly, and vodka when i want to get drunk. I have a small hypo about half the time i drink.
Like anything else with his diabetes, he's a grown adult and able to make his own choices. As long as his sugars are okay, there's nothing to worry about.
