    Hi texnanny, Personally I drink water, soda water (1 glass daily) and ice tea in the summer. A squeeze of lemon or lime adds flavor. If your labs are in the normal range, at stage 3 you are not that limited except for the consideration of your diabetes. Always consult your Dr. or Dietician for the final ok on dietary needs. Have a great day!

    May you always have Love to share, Health to spare, and Friends that care

    I agree. What a great list of drinks, Marina! Tonia is right that you usually are not limited in fluid at stage 3. I would just watch and limit the amount of potassium and phosphorus that you drink so you don't over do it.

    HI personally I want to share a favorite drink of mine being a diabetic is Milk.Milk with sugar free sweetness is very enjoyable an it also contains a sum of carbohydrates in this which is quite healthy formula.

    I would like to suggest you cold water or you can just have lemonade without the sugar and it still tastes wonderful.

    What about the herbal teas, like Camamile and mint, etc, I like hot drinks and assume that I can't drink coffee so am trying to find hot drink alternatives
