Yo all. I am a type 1 diabetic, I am insulin dependent (using a pump), and I love beer and brewing. Was diagnosed at age 23, and got into brewing about age 25. I am now 30. I am totally in love with brewing/studying/drinking great beer. I compete with my beers very often, and I take everything about this hobby very seriously. I've brewed over 200 gallons this year so far and I'm still accelerating.
As far as health concerns, I find that while I keep myself in top physical shape, I find very little problem with drinking my own beer, or most others.
I guess I just wanted to see how many are here and like me: diabetic. If so, is there anything to you do especially to address your health issue? Like severe drinking limitations, or special low-carb recipes, etc. I just make whichever beer I want, although I can't sit and drink a couple thick chewy beers without compensating with at least a bit of insulin.
Anyway, I'm totally happy with how things are going and at this point I'm not feeling any real disadvantage.
Cheers to all, especially to you insulin-dependents
Holler back please if you have a similar situation or know someone who does
