Hi, I have DI and I was wondering if I can get drunk? I've consumed smaller amounts of alcohol, knowing it can mess with my desmopression, but it's had no effect. I've heard that if you have DI you are either extremely sensitive to alcohol or not bothered at all. Any help is appreciated!
Hi, I would have to advise against drinking any 'significant' amount of alcohol when you have insulin dependent diabetes. I.e. anything more than one or 2 small drinks. It is true that some people can get away with it, but it is also the case that many people have fallen in to diabetic comas. A friend of mine has been very close to this, but luckily her husband, and daughters always found her. She no longer drinks alcohol at all. Even if you do risk one or 2 drinks, you must check your blood sugars on time. It is down to you really, but personally, I would say don't take the chance...
