Hypoglycemia can result from excessive alcohol consumption.
Hypoglycemia, otherwise called low blood sugar, happens when levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood are too low. Hypoglycemia is basic in individuals with diabetes who take insulin and a few (yet not all) oral diabetes drugs.

A few people with diabetes create side effects of low blood sugar at marginally more elevated amounts. On the off chance that your blood sugar levels are high for drawn out stretches of time, you may have manifestations and feel ineffectively when your blood sugar is more like 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L). Getting your blood sugar under better control can lower the blood sugar level when you start to feel indications.
