Dear Alicia, Welcome to healthcaremagic forum...
Since this message is posted few days later, I hope your husband has improved now and is free from symptoms.
For the sake of your information, Diabetic individuals who consume alcohol are prone to hypoglycemia
. Apart from this other complications such as wernicke's - korasakoff's syndrome can follow. If you feel that your husband is not responding after hours following alcohol consumption, hypoglycemia could be a possibility. Check his blood sugar levels and if they are found low, you will need to visit ER for iv glucose
To avoid such untoward complications it is necessary the alcohol consumption is restricted absolutely if possible; else to avoid binge drinking
Get the liver
function tests and other digestive enzymes also checked.
