Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip

I'm not sure I understand your question so can you state it again for me please?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Can a diabetic from drinking the night before still have alcohol in their system the next day if they have like diabetic ketoacidosis War what could cause the BAC level to be high
Expert:  tazechip replied 10 months ago.


No, even a diabetic wouldn't have any blood alcohol the next day.

And diabetic ketoacidosis wouldn't cause a false positive on a breathalyzer or cause there to be alcohol in the blood the next day
