Eat thoughtfully and be merry, but watch the drink. Do you know why?

-  Alcohol can mask the signs of low blood sugar, which can be dangerous for people with diabetes

-   There are a lot of calories in alcohol so people should drink in moderation

-   Alcoholic beverages dilate blood vessels and accelerate the loss of body heat

-   Sugary cocktails and liquors can cause spikes in blood sugar; while spirits can cause blood sugar to drop

So be mindful of alcohol intake and respect the recommendations of up to one serving alcohol for women and two drinks for men.
