Right at the trail head for Ben Nevis is a quaint Scottish pub with Guiness on tap. After a hike up the mountain, how could we not enjoy a beer.

A cool beer on a hot day is one of life’s celebrations.

Living with diabetes is about balance. How do we know if we strike the right balance. For an immediate answer, I look at my blood sugar readings.

The long term effect on our organs, already stressed by diabtetes is harder to tell. That is when I try to remember moderation. And really I never could drink more than one Guiness. Even after hiking Ben Nevis.
