    Alcohol does increase your blood sugar if you are diabetic because alcohol is produced from a mixture of yeast, glucose and starch during the fermentation process to make ethanol, the most common alcohol found in our beverages. When you consume alcohol there is also unreacted sugar (glucose) in your drink. Diabetics should not be drinking alcoholic averages for that reason.

    Its actually complex process, alcohol purely doesn't cause high blood sugar level (if you are consuming distilled alcohol thats branded alcohol), but it can suddenly reduce blood sugar level and pose threat to your life, then body for its protection increases hormones which increases blood sugar level and pose another problem.

    This is just a glimpse on complex alcohol problem in diabetics better discuss with your doctor.

    Alcohol or ethanol is a commonly consumed beverage. when alcohol is taken it is absorbed along the whole length of the digestive tract, rapidly from the that is 20% from stomach and most rapidly that is 80 %from the small intestine. The rate of absorption is influenced by the volume ingested, the concentration and the nature of the alcoholic drink and presence of food in the stomach.
    Alcohol provides energy and produces 29.3 kJ/g (8 kcal/g), but many alcoholic drinks also contain sugar, which increases their calorific value results in an increase of blood sugar level. For example, one pint of beer provides 1045 kJ (250 kcal).
    Nevertheless the oxidation of a large quantities of alcohol effect on the metabolism of other compounds. There is interference with carbohydrate metabolism, with inhibition of glycolysis (formation of glucose from glycogen which is a storage compound) and gluconeogenesis (formation of glucose from other substances other than glycogen like fatty acids, amino acids), resulting lowering of blood sugar level in long run.
