In brief: They are different
Food coma is a common term used to describe the sleepiness experienced after a large meal.
It is not a medical term. Diabetic coma can occur when the blood sugar is very high or very low. Either one is a serious medical emergency.

In brief: Causes of coma
Diabetic coma results when blood sugar is extremely high and the body is in a hyper kteonnic state.
Food poisoning is usually caused either by a toxin produced by one of many bacteria. Blood sugar may remain stable. The toxin or the bacteria itself can cause abnormal function of the nervous system.
