GlucoMenu® Tip of the Day:
Choose beverages wisely. Beverages containing carbohydrate can increase blood sugar.
Milk, juice, and other carbohydrate containing beverages (soda pop and fruit drinks)
should be worked into your meal plan and counted as carbohydrate choices.
The following drinks have minimal effects on blood sugar:
Limit beverages with caffeine as these actually deplete the body of water.
Choose whole fruit more often over fruit juice to increase fiber in your diet.
