Alcohol and drugs

Moderation is advised with regard to consuming alcohol and the use of some drugs. Alcohol inhibits glycogenesis in the liver and some drugs inhibit hunger signs. This, together with weakened judgment, memory and concentration caused by some drugs can lead to hypoglycemia. Diabetics who take insulin or tablets such as sulphonylureas ought to not, therefore, ever consume alcohol on an empty stomach, but take some starchy food (such as bread or potato crisps) simultaneously as consumption of alcohol.
