Why put yourself through that again--2 times in my life were enough for me. The same way 2 cigs were. Suggest finding your own tolerance for etoh, drink under that, 1drink 1hour max before driving (or dd), and learn how much more fun party is sober. ...Read more

If someone is suffering from alcohol poisoning, why is it a treatment option to use very dilute ethanol?
It isn't: that I know of. If someone is coming out of alcohol poisoning and is beginning to experience alcohol withdrawal, there are some doctors who will treat it with a 5% alcohol solution intravenously. However, several studies and meta-analyses of studies have argued strongly against using alcohol to treat alcohol withdrawal. If poisoned with wood or rubbing alcohol, alcohol may be a useful treatment. ...Read more

Treat the cause: Although i agree with that symptom substitution (replacing the binging with a less destructive behavior) is a good part of the plan, overall stress reduction is likely to be a more effective long- term solution. In looking for a replacement for the binging, it needs to be something you enjoy that reduces anxiety, or it's not likely to work. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Alcohol ?: I assume you are speaking of drinking alcohol. This depends on what you drink. Pure grain alcohols do not affect the glycemic index if you do not use a mix. Drinking them straight, with water, or club soda will not affect the glycemic index. Low carb beer is acceptable if your diabetes is controlled (in moderation of course) and the carb content remains within your maximal total daily intake. ...Read more
