not sure about type 1,but type 2 alcohol lowers your blood sugar.
it does this because your liver also makes some insulin.
alcohol is a poison to your body(no joke for real),so when you drink the liver stops making insulin in order to rid the body of the alcohol
be careful when you drink,you may get too low.

Yes, tequila converts to sugar just like other spirits. Not to say that a type 1 diabetic cannot drink alcohol, but you must recognize that it will totally jack up you blood sugar if you are not careful. I would suggest you drink with extreme care, check your blood sugar often, and resign yourself to the reality that "partying" does not necessarily mean you have to be drunk.

that i not true all alcohol effects your blood sugars. it turns to sugar in your system. also your kidneys are now risk due to the diabetes and alcohol is bad for your liver and kidneys. you don't need the added strain. follow your doctors orders to the letter. my dad thought if no one saw him eat it it didn't count and he just lost his left leg above the knee. it's no game. take care.
