Description & results

Your "Guide to Diabetes and Beer" is a useful tool intended to assist educators who often answer client questions about how to live with diabetes and still consume beer. This resource was developed as a collaboration between Diabetes Canada and Beer Canada.



Beer Canada was encouraged by the Dietitians of Canada, to create a diabetes and beer resource.  186 members of the healthcare community who attended the 2017 Diabetes Canada conference took Beer Canada's survey on the new resource. 27% of those surveyed said they are familiar with Canada's Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines. Those surveyed said they could see using the resource in counselling, health promotion, handouts and with youth patients.
