Can bowel movements drop the blood sugar in diabetics?

No. Rarely, in the case of shortening of the bowel due to surgery or weight loss surgery, there can be a reactive drop in blood sugar levels that can occur around the same time as a bowel movement, but the bowel movement does not cause the drop in glucose levels.
