Re: [IP] Tequila, Rum, and diabetic control

yes, alcohol can actually cause low blood glucose many hours after the fact.
and they can be severe.  there are a few reasons for this.  one the liver
processes the alcohol and ingnores (so to speak) a low glucose.  this is why
we tell persons with type 1 diabetes to  never drink on an empty stomach.
there is more to it than this but the main thing to recognize is alcohol
should be used with caution and respect.
