yeah heavy alcohol intake can reduce your blood sugar level. but alcohol has a few benefits when it is taken in moderate amount. At the same time it is very bad for your health. It can cause cirrhosis of your liver, it can cause neuropathy or brain damage, hypoglycaemia, gastritis and nutritional deficiencies. So it is better to avoid alcohol if you don't have sufficient mediclaim. consult your diabetologist for the titration of your diabetic medications. control your diet. You may require insulin. My advise would be control your diet. stop alcohol. Do yoga. Take glimepiride 0.5 mg (Gp 0.5) after breakfast along with current medication.

This combination is not indicated for the treatment of Type 1 DM.

To avoid such problems, some researchers suggest an intake of vitamin B12 from outside at least once every year.
