Alcohol Effects On Liver And Kidneys
Etoh in kefir: From what I just found out by googling the alcohol content of Kefir it depends on how it is made. Amazing what u can find on google. Try it sometime. The highest % ETOH is 3%. So convert your source ETOH % to how much you drink a day and see if you exceed 4 Oz of ETOH a day. If not should be OK. Seems like a lot of kefir. Cheers!
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
What to do if I've been drinking a lot of alcohol over the past month. Have I done serious damage to my kidneys/liver?
Alcohol ingestion: The kidneys merely excrete water and excessive alcohol (A) ingestion does not really affect them. The same cannot be said for your liver. Excessive A ingestion can damage your liver, as the liver metabolizes A. If your drinking was only for one month, not much damage should have been done, unless you have a long history of A ingestion previously. If you make dark urine, see a physician.
What do you advise if I've been drinking a lot of alcohol over the past month. Have I done serious damage to my kidneys/liver?
Probably not: But you don't want to take the risk, do you?? so lay off the 'a lot' of alcohol and stay healthy.
It depends: There are many factors involved, such as other stressors on these organs, your age, how often you drink and how much at a time. If you have a family history of alcoholism or other drug addiction, it becomes more likely that your drinking will at some point get our of control. In general, the heavier you drink, the more damage is done.
Can alcohol poisoning kill you? How badly can it damage you liver and kidneys if you've had it 3 times?
Too much alcohol: Too much alcohol can kill you in many ways, such as it can put you in a coma and acidosis, you can fall and hit your head, you can get into an accident driving and you can hurt others in accident or even emotionally. The risk of liver and later kidney disease if from prolonged intake of alcohol and constant damage to the tissues.
Hi. If I have astained from alcohol for 7 days is that long enough to be outta my system for a cbc, lipid, liver and kidney?
What if the patient has liver cirrhosis (alcohol) and his kidneys have failed/are failing. Can Dialysis help. He is unconcious:- (?
Poor prognosis: Renal failure in a patient with end-staged liver disease portends a very poor prognosis. Hepatorenal syndrome is complex and poorly understood but mortality is very high within weeks of development. While dialysis can prolong life, unless he is a liver transplant candidate, his quality and length of life will be severely curtailed.
Can I continue to be taking alcohol with a lower back pain nd itching on every area of my abdomen after drinking?
No: While many people use etoh to help relieve anxiety and/or pain- it is not a good idea to try to fix something you don't understand. In your case, I would see your doctor to get labs and check your health.
Every time I take even 1 sip of alcohol, I get pain across my mid/lower back & abdomen, almost as if I had been working out and my muscles are tensing. Goes away after 10 min or so. Blood work always normal. What could be the cause?
? Heritage: Some people are deficient in an enzyme that is needed for metabolism of alcohol. In the absence of this enzyme, acetyl-aldehyde, a product in the metabolic pathway of alcohol, accumulates and causes symptoms. Consider it a blessing, as alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever. Stay away from alcohol. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Absolutely: Alcohol is a toxin. If your liver is already injured, using alcohol can make this worse. However, a damaged liver should worsen the effects of alcohol elsewhere in the body (such as getting drunk more easily).
Not too much effect: Alcohol rarely affects the kidneys. Lungs are not directly influenced although folks can get drunk and choke on their food or vomitus which can lead to serious lung injury
Which is harder on the liver, alcohol or kava? Assuming the amounts for their relaxation effects are set. For eg 1.5 oz alcohol, 8oz kava
In the absence of: Comparative studies, there is no way to answer this question. They can both be toxic to the liver, but a comparison is impossible. Theoretically, in a healthy person with a healthy liver one would not expect any significant damage from either one. Then there are those with alcohol or kava intolerance where it is a different story altogether. Best wishes.
Varies.: It's a very individual response. Some people seem to tolerate what can be considered unsafe levels for extended periods without much damage to their livers, while others don't tolerate even moderate amounts. It's a cumulative effect. The more you drink and for the longest period, the more likely to develop liver disease. Nutrition is important too. Poor nutrition makes it more likely to develop.
Lamictal: I would not recommend alcohol with any prescribed medications.
Having acute kidney failure for the second time in two years. Why does this keep happening? Long term effects? I drink alcohol, does that effect it?
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
