Whatever your worries, there is someone who has been there before and hearing their story can give you some peace of mind. Overindulgence is part of the human frailty and something we all have battles with, because it brings with it feelings of guilt, annoyance, and sometimes depression. Alcohol is sometimes one of those excesses at this time of year. It is important to understand how much it effects your diabetes and how to manage and treat yourself.
