Alcohol Consumption


Presentation

  • A 28-year-old male farmer presented to our emergency service with bilateral painful visual loss for the past 7 days that occurred suddenly after alcohol consumption.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This article presents an unusual case of a large iliopsoas cystic solid mass associated with femoral head necrosis in a patient with heavy alcohol consumption for years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • OBJECTIVE: To present a predictive model of alcohol abuse among adolescents based on prevalence projections in various population subgroups. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The relative risks of abnormal ALT activities were increased in male heavy drinkers, especially in those presenting with adiposity and sedentary lifestyle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • An 18-year-old woman presented with diabetes, pancreatic calcification and evidence of malabsorption. The features of calcific pancreatitis unrelated to alcohol consumption are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Soft Tissue Mass
  • A soft tissue mass can be palpated deep in the groin several days after the onset of pain. The laboratory assessments indicated an inflammatory response of the patient. Imaging was performed on the femoral head and iliopsoas cyst.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Regurgitation
  • The main symptoms are heartburn and acid regurgitation and complications include oesophagitis, strictures, Barrett's oesophagus and oesophageal adenocarcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Liver Fibrosis
  • This inhibition in gene expression was associated with a lowering of liver fibrosis and hepatocellular injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Conclusions: In diabetic patients with NAFLD, light or moderate lifetime alcohol consumption was not significantly associated with liver fibrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Psychiatric Symptoms
  • Moderate drinkers were also less likely to report fair/poor health, after adjusting for demographics and psychiatric symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • The economic impact of alcohol reduction using nalmefene treatment was not evaluated. METHOD: The model simulates patient-level alcohol consumption over a 5-year time horizon across different treatment cohorts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • For women, an association was also found between having experienced injuries caused by drinking and use of self-treatment techniques and visit to a CAM practitioner.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We aimed to determine if smoking, alcohol consumption, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use were risk factors for EoE, and to assess their impact on EoE phenotypes and treatment outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Furthermore, the authors discuss standard medical treatment interventions for ethanol and non-ethanol based alcohols.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In spite of treatment with a gluten-free diet in hospital the patient did not improve and the villous atrophy remained unchanged. Other causes than coeliaki to villous atrophy were ruled out.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Conclusion: In total, 20% of people diagnosed with cancer were hazardous drinkers, despite the known relationship between alcohol use and a worse prognosis of the disease and an increased likelihood of recurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Males with AIP had lower total amount of spirits and lower proportion of binge drinking than those with AUD, suggesting the idiosyncratic etiology of AIP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In view of the low frequency of discordant subtype in Japanese women and their relatively low alcohol intake, our findings may provide a clue for elucidating the etiology of breast cancer rather than for preventing discordant subtype.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In recent years, increasing attention has been paid to the role of alcohol in the etiology of type 2 diabetes. A number of studies have investigated this issue, but with contradictory results.[care.diabetesjournals.org]

  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of the study is to examine and summarize studies reporting on the epidemiology, the risk of developing diabetes, and the cardiovascular effects on individuals with diabetes of different levels of alcohol consumption.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Abstract Metabolomics studies of disease conditions related to chronic alcohol consumption provide compelling evidence of several perturbed metabolic pathways underlying the pathophysiology of alcoholism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Our selection of biomarkers for study was guided by links to cardiovascular pathophysiology.[bmj.com]

Prevention

  • RESULTS: Approximately 14% of men and 12% of women reported alcohol consumption exceeding recommendations for cancer prevention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
