During Memorial Day Weekend celebrations, friends often gather where alcohol is served and then take to the road. Drinking and driving is hazardous, as we all know, because alcohol affects many skills needed to drive safely and competently, including reaction time, coordination, information processing, and the ability to track moving objects.
If you have diabetes and drive, it adds yet another factor to the equation. If your blood sugar either spikes or drops while you are behind the wheel, you may feel sleepy, dizzy, or confused, develop blurred vision, or even black out. The result could be disastrous for you, your passengers, and others on the road.
To stay sharp and drive well with diabetes, here are some simple tips.
If you have a history of very high blood sugar levels, talk about driving with your doctor or other healthcare providers. Stay safe over Memorial Day weekend and throughout the year.
