Question ID: 757982
If someone is diabetic (type I diabetic) and did not have much to eat
and did not take his insulin dose, then goes on to have some alcoholic
drinks (not beer, so the calories ingested weren't that much) what
effect would that have on his breathelizer test? Meaning, is it
possible that fermentation can occur due to ketoacidosis due to lack
of usable sugar and thus giving a higher alcohol reading.  Please
provide scientific evidence.  Thank you.
