From Toronto, Ontario:
I know that diabetics have to watch their carbohydrates intake, but what about water?
There's rarely any requirement to limit water intake in diabetes; in fact, maintaining adequate hydration is very important. Also, extra intake of water can be used to help bring down a high blood sugar level, and lack of fluids contribute to the complication called diabetic ketoacidosis.
