Re: Type 2 Diabetes - drinks

In Oz we have "Coopers Ultra Light" reasonable tasting beer, <0.5% alcohol; and no sugar.

Re: Type 2 Diabetes - drinks

Regarding beer references...FWIW:

Gluten is present in most all beer. In rats (no human studies to my knowledge) the gluten metabolite exorphin A5 causes an increase in insulin secretion after a meal...part of the underlying problem with T2 diabetes. Invariably this results in more eating, rinse and repeat. Otherwise such metabolites act on opioid receptors all over the place, causing all sorts of issues, effectively meaning that to some people a donut is like a little opium hit. Note how easy it is for people to give up bread, pasta, and heroin.

Re: Type 2 Diabetes - drinks

I don't have diabetes, but use "Singles-to-go" bought on Amazon. No sugar, no salt, several flavors. Comes in a small packet that is sized for a standard water bottle. Comes 6/box, 12 boxes/case for about $10 or 14Ę per bottle.

Re: Type 2 Diabetes - drinks

Thanks for all the replies. 1) I don't drink alcohol
2) Soda water, I wouldn't give it to pigs ( but ty for the thought)
3) I usually drink water with flavoured infusions, or if I'm out and about, I like to get flavoured mineral water. I can get these from Woolworths or Coles if necessary.

I love Vitamin Water Zero because it's sweetened with Stevia. Nothing artificial. Plus it has antioxidants.

Hpeer,

A new alternative to Alipurinol is Febuxostat (Uloric). I had trouble with Alipurinol but none on Uloric. You might ask your doctor.

Stevia might be naturally sourced, but you still have the problem where it is sweet but and has no calories, which is thought to contribute to the advance of diabetes.

The theory is that when you taste something sweet, the body releases insulin immediately, in anticipation of the later spike in blood sugar. But if that spike doesn't come, insulin is now too high.

No-calorie sweeteners could have the effect of training the body not to release insulin.
