If it walks like a drunk and talks like a drunk....

Not everyone who appears to be driving under the influence truly is under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination.  There are a multitude of physical and medical factors that may make someone appear to be intoxicated.  A recent study presented to the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society has demonstrated that people who suffer significant hypothryoidism may appear to be as intoxicated as someone who has a blood alcohol level greater than 0.08 mg/dl.  

It is important to have your Denver DUI attorney question you not only about your encounter with police officers but also about your medical history to determine if there are factors other than alcohol that may have contributed to your appearance of intoxication.
