Effect of alcohol on blood glucose level was observed after obtaining similar plasma ethanol concentrations in normal as well as starved rabbits. No alteration in blood glucose level as well as in liver glycogen content was observed in normal rabbits. However, the starved animals revealed a marked fall in blood glucose level accompained by depleted liver glycogen stores. Thus we observe that ethanol is capable of producing hypoglycemia in the animals with exhausted hepatic glycogen stores, irrespective of the amount administered to them.
