Contact your healthcare provider if you’re having issues with memory loss. Memory loss can be a sign of a serious condition such as Alzheimer’s disease. Your individual outcome is best predicted by your healthcare provider who has examined you and determined the cause and the severity of your amnesia. People with amnesia generally have to rely on family and friends to fill in the gaps in their memory and function in daily life. If you have amnesia you may be unable to recall past information (retrograde amnesia) and/or hold onto new information (anterograde amnesia).

This means people who only have one, properly measured, drink per day. This can be problematic as it becomes a slippery slope, and one drink can easily turn into two. Since your risk for developing heart disease doubles if you’re living with diabetes, you need to be particularly careful with alcohol.

What Does a Diabetic Seizure Look Like?

If you’ve had low blood sugar without feeling or noticing symptoms (hypoglycemia unawareness), you may need to check your blood sugar more often to see if it’s low and treat it. Driving with low blood sugar can be dangerous, so be sure to check your blood sugar before you get behind the wheel. For many people, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is a blood sugar level below 70 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), or 3.9 millimoles per liter (mmol/L). Ask your health care provider about the appropriate range to keep your blood sugar (target range).

Chronic heavy drinking, which involves drinking heavily on a daily or otherwise frequent basis, can cause damage to the pancreas, kidneys, heart, and liver. Liver and kidney damage, in particular, can pose several serious diabetic health risks. Having a medical condition such as diabetes can complicate the treatment of alcohol use and addiction, but it does not make it untreatable. Many inpatient alcohol use programs can individualize patients’ treatment plans to suit their medical and mental health needs. Alcohol measurements in accident and emergency departments may grossly underestimate the frequency of chronic alcohol abuse.

Treating Diabetics Who Have Alcoholism

5Disulfiram (Antabuse®) is a medication used to treat alcoholics. It acts by inducing an unpleasant physical response (e.g., nausea and vomiting) after alcohol consumption. Drinking alcohol does not cause stomach ulcers, but it–like other factors like stress, smoking, and eating spicy foods–can make ulcer symptoms worse. If you have diabetes, it is important to know whether it’s safe for you to drink alcohol, what type of alcohol is best, and how much alcohol is safe to consume.
