Hi! I am new to DM so I haven’t really been living my life since my diagnosis. I hope to change that this weekend. I need some alcohol/food/comfort advice.
Friday: Concert and drinks
I have been sticking with wine or diet coke and rum and guessing on how much I should snack so I don’t get low. I usually am a little high (150) because I don’t want to take too much insulin. The one time I did drink 2 glasses of wine with food I went to 50. What is your usual ratio?
Saturday: Hangout with friends in different parts of SF Bay… I guess just extra snacks since I will be away from home all day?
Sunday: SuperBowl!! I will probably go to a bar with friends. Any types of more DM appropriate snacks at a bar?
I guess my big question is what I’ve stated before: how do you bolus while drinking?
Do you ever get uncomfortable testing in a bar? Do you ever bring your own snacks?
