[IP] REW: {IP] Question about alcohol

>>then the Alcohol is going to interfere with your liver
releasing glucagon. This "no glucagon" is going to lower
your BS.<<

Correction time: The liver breaks down stored GLYCOGEN in
response to a release of glucagon from the alpha cells of
the pancreas which are responding to low blood glucose
levels. Glucagon release may also be impaired by alcohol,
and in some Type 1s, may also be deficient.
