The secret is to balance booze and carbs and medication (alcohol drops blood sugar by itself; mixed with meds like glipizide, blood sugar can plummet), so have some ice cream, test, then wine to bring the numbers down, test, a little more ice cream or wine to balance… oh, and the effects can take hours to peak (as one who has been awakened at oh-dark-thirty with cold sweats and shaky limbs) so be careful out there.
