Alcohol-Small amounts of alcohol taken with meals do not usually cause a problem; however, larger amounts of alcohol taken for a long time or in one sitting without food can increase the effect of insulin to lower the blood sugar level. This can keep the blood sugar low for a longer period of time than normal
Beta-adrenergic blocking agents (acebutolol [e.g., Sectral], atenolol [e.g., Tenormin], betaxolol [e.g., Kerlone], bisoprolol [e.g., Zebeta], carteolol [e.g., Cartrol], labetalol [e.g., Normodyne], metoprolol [e.g., Lopressor], nadolol [e.g., Corgard], oxprenolol [e.g., Trasicor], penbutolol [e.g., Levatol], pindolol [e.g., Visken], propranolol [e.g., Inderal], sotalol [e.g., Sotacor], timolol [e.g., Blocadren])-Beta-adrenergic blocking agents may increase the chance of developing either high or low blood sugar levels. Also, they can cover up symptoms of low blood sugar (such as fast heartbeat). Because of this, a person with diabetes might not recognize that he or she has low blood sugar and might not take immediate steps to treat it. Beta-adrenergic blocking agents can also cause a low blood sugar level to last longer than normal
Corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone or other cortisone-like medicines)-Corticosteroids taken over several weeks, applied to the skin over a long period of time, or injected into a joint may increase the blood sugar level. Higher doses of insulin may be needed during corticosteroid treatment and for a period of time after corticosteroid treatment ends
Pentamidine (e.g., NebuPent)-Your dose of pentamidine or insulin or both may need to be adjusted if your pancreas can still make some insulin because pentamidine may cause your pancreas to release its insulin too fast. This effect at first lowers the blood sugar but then causes high blood sugar

Answer by Carol P
many, if diet controled they still have to avoid any with high sugars, If they medicate their are a lot of interactions to be aware of depending on the meds they have for diabetes and diabetes related conditions. Talk to a pharmacist. But commonly asprin containing meds decongestants are advised to consult doctor first.
