From Knightdale, North Carolina, USA:

If a diabetic doesn't take insulin for two and drinks two alcoholic beverages, what affect will alcoholic level have on a breathalyzer test?


Alcohol levels will increase with any alcoholic drink and the breathalyzer will detect this. I would not recommend an individual with diabetes mellitus indulge in alcohol to any extent.
