Alcohol can cause hypoglycemia in persons with diabetes as it affects the way the liver handles sugar (it is too busy trying to clear the alcohol).

I don't know that hypoglycemia would have any impact on how fast the alcohol is cleared.

Please be very careful if you drink more than 1 or 2 drinks, as it can be very serious in persons with diabetes.
