AskHealthy replied to Hummingbird's discussion 'Tired of water' in the group LADA Diabetics
"You can buy a soda stream, and make your own bubbly water with lemon/lime juice or other natural flavorings. Iced green tea is another favorite. Oxylent vitamin powders make for a nice drink. I also really like bragg apple cider vinegar drinks."

"Hi there, I've been told that 'that just happens sometimes' and I've also been told it is probably due to my strict diet: gluten and dairy free. I'm not sure! I should take more tests to see if there is any pattern."
