12 hour fast, glucose level- 110.  About 95 in prior tests.  Problem?  Also does 1 glass of wine/day contribute to long term higher glucose levels?

Prediabetes: A fasting glucose of 100-125 is considered prediabetes. Another test to check your average glucose over 3 months is a hemoglobin A1C. Considering you have an impaired fasting glucose, this would be a good test to see where your average blood sugar levels are. At this stage, you have the potential to reverse your condition with diet and exercise. You're likely ok with 1 glass of wine. ...Read more

How long after ativan can I have one glass of wine?

Problem: It is really not about the timing, and i understand that the answer might sound extreme. First of all, you mention alprazolam, Clonazepam in your list of meds, but only ask about ativan. Your dr probably assumed that you would not use alcohol while on treatment with those 3 CNS depressants. We don t know when you will take or need your next ativan. Please ask your dr. See comment. ...Read more

I have one glass of wine a night, am I addicted?

I have one glass of wine a night, am I addicted?

No.: I wouldn't worry about one glass of wine a night (if that's all it is, and you don't have a history of alcoholism or substance abuse). If that glass of wine is causing substantial conflicts with your family, work, relationships, or the law, then you start getting into some shady territory. But for the majority of people, one glass of wine a night is fine. Everything in moderation. Cheers! ...Read more

If one glass of wine is good for health, are two better?

If one glass of wine is good for health, are two better?

One is enough: Increasing to two glasses of wine has not been associated with health benefits greater than a single glass per day. In this example, there are some believed benefits of very limited amounts of wine (typically a red), but excess intake can be harmful to your health. Everything in moderation is a smarter path. ...Read more

Taking 50mg trazodone/night. How many hours should I space one glass of wine or rita, before taking pill? Or should I not take my pill that night?

Taking 50mg trazodone/night. How many hours should I space one glass of wine or rita, before taking pill? Or should I not take my pill that night?

Hours: Generally you don't want to drink within 2-4 hours of sleep because this contributes to nighttime waking. If you wake trazadone specifically for sleep, this should be safe. Less is always better so if you can go without the combination of alcohol and medications, that may be helpful. ...Read more
