Additionally, alcohol is also high in sugar. This sugar can be increased if you’re mixing your drinks with juice or soda.


It is a feast to eat desserts after meals. However, desserts such as cakes, cookies can be dangerous for people with diabetes because they are high in sugar. To reduce the intake of sugar effectively, you can make diabetic-friendly desserts by substituting sugar with sugar substitutes.
