Hypoglycemia Symptoms
Hypoglycemia Symptoms

Los Angeles DUI lawyer Lawrence Taylor, known nationally as the "Dean of DUI Attorneys", claims that many citizens accused - and convicted - of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) are actually innocent.  Their crime: diabetes.

Taylor, the author of the best-selling legal treatise Drunk Driving Defense, claims that the symptoms of a diabetic with hypoglycemia (low sugar level) resemble those of alcohol intoxication.  Further, he claims, diabetics have a chemical in their breath which causes breathalyzers to register high blood-alcohol levels.

This is important to note for all the diabetics out there, if you are comteplating purchasing a breathalyzer you should look at the fuel-cell models available.  A fuel-cell breathalyzer is not affected by the ketones present in those with diabetes so you will not get a false positive because of your condition.

Fortunately you can purchase a fuel-cell breathalyzer right here, take a look at the AlcoHAWK PT500 and decide if it is right for you.
