What can I drink?

I found out today I have type 2 diabetes my A1C is 6.6 and my Dr put me on Metformin ER my question is I need to drink more water and water isn't my favorite thing to drink so is there any good water flavoring I can use?

  1. , this is a great question! I hope others may be able to chime in and share what flavorings they use for their water. I personally don't mind water, so I usually just drink regular water, but sometimes I drink it with lavender that's been steeped overnight. We have some articles where others have suggested ideas: https://type2diabetes.com/nutrition/water-can-learn-to-love-it Hope this helps! Best, Minel (Team Member)

    1. I've started drinking Clear American flavored sparkling water thru Walmart. (It's 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 sodium, & 0 carbs) and yes they taste good. And come in several flavors.....Mandarin Orange, Strawberry, Black Cherry, & Peach

      1. That sounds delicious and refreshing, ! Thanks for chiming in. Best wishes. - Lori (Team Member)
