Hypoglycemia, Diabetes & Blood-Alcohol Tests

It has been found that diabetes and hypoglycemia can be related to accidents and errors on today’s road. Even more common are unjustified DWI and DUI arrests concerning patterns normally associated with a drunk driver.

A healthy individual's blood glucose (blood sugar) will be from 70 to 120 mg/dl. When blood glucose rises above 120 mg/dl, and there is no insulin present, diabetes occurs. Insulin is a hormone controlled by your pancreas that is required to digest and keep a blood sugar balance. Hypoglycemia will occur if blood glucose decreases to 60 mg/dl or lower.

Four different forms of diabetes exist, each with its own treatment. The first, Type 1, is typically diagnosed in children with juvenile-onset diabetes. Although less common, adults can be diagnosed (refer to www.diabetes.org). With Type 1, insulin must be injected into the body because the pancreas fails to produce any insulin, leaving it to be the most dangerous of the four types. With Type 2 diabetes, the body can create insulin, but not enough. The body is also resistant to the insulin and does not make use of it in the right way. For Type 2, the treatments include a new diet, exercise, and, on occasion, insulin tablets. Gestational Diabetes and Pre-diabetes are the last of the four types. Gestational Diabetes is most commonly temporary and is diagnosed during pregnancy. Pre-diabetes occurs when the blood sugar is higher than usual, but still not at the level of Type 2 diabetes.
