crystal light,
Coffee and tea. If you use sugar typically, just add your favorite artificial sweetener. Splenda is popular, but if you want something more natural, go with Stevia, xylitol or erthyritol. Crystal Light, sugar-free Kool-Aid, diet juices (typically only have a few grams of sugar per glass - make sure to check your blood sugar after drinking one, though), diet or sugar-free hot chocolate, whey protein powder shakes, Diet Snapple, etc., etc.
Anything aside from water is bad but some things are worst than others, you need to be selective.I drink coffee with non dairy cream and sweetener in the morning, then rest of the day no sweetenerAnd I drink green.
Crystal Light, Tea.
I drink:Powerade ZeroDiet Mountain DewCrystal Lite Peach Tea (Or any other type of tea)Crystal Lite LemonadeG2 (Low calorie/Carb Gatorade)
Iced TeaTomato juice is the best juice. A bloody mary or Virgin Mary are tasty.Coconut Water. I beleive Pepsi sells it now. It very low calorie. No sugar and as good a hydration drink as Gatorade.I live in Thailand , so I have coconuts growing in the yard. So coconut water is free. Take care TIN
Milk. Diet sodas. Kool-Aid with sugar substitute.

What is Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body convert food into energy. Without insulin, glucose (sugar) from the food you eat cannot enter cells. So glucose builds up in the blood. Your body tissue becomes starved for energy.

Type 1 diabetes usually begins in children and young adults. Over the long-term, if type 1 diabetes is not adequately treated, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels, heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves, and other tissues or organs.
