How Long Do Blood Thinning Effects Of Alcohol Last
A study in 2005 showed that moderate Alcohol consumption interferes with the activation of platelets in the blood, preventing them from clumping together to cause clots in the arteries. This interference also slows the rate at which blood coagulates for beneficial reasons, such as in response to injuries, leading to a greater risk of hemorrhaging, especially during surgery.
Anticoagulants are any of a variety of drugs which decrease the body's ability to make or sustain blood clots. They fall, generally, into two categories. Drugs like Aspirin and clopidogrel (plavix) prevent platelets from forming the initial stages of a clot. Drugs like warfarin (coumadin) and dabigatran (pradaxa) block the later process ...Read more

how long does acute alcohol hepatitis last? I had liver discomfort wen I quit drinkin. Bloods taken 2weeks after I quit. Normal. How likely I had it?
Complex, no reliable: Simple answer. Hepatitis is a catch-all term meaning liver inflammation. Alcohol, viral infections & fat storage from high carb intake are all drivers, yet most damage missed until severe enough, long enough. If very healthy, liver can regenerate from as much as 90% loss within 3-4 months, yet many variables. On lab, look for albumen high normal (e.g. >4.5 mg/dL), bilirubin low & 3 enzymes low. ...Read more

I have a total of 6 stents, how long should I expect to be on plavix (clopidogrel) or other blood thinning medication?
Depends: It doesn't matter so much how many stents you have but why you have them, what do you your other arteries look like and when were they put in. For instance, if a patient had stents for a heart attack and got 2 stents and then got 2 more 8 months later and then another 2 in a year, I might recommend life long antiplatelet treatment with Aspirin (81 mg) and plavix (clopidogrel). ...Read more

Drug metabolism: Drug metabolism is difficult to predict from one individual to another. External factors also play a role. For example, someone with liver disease will most likely metabolize drugs differently than someone with a healthy liver. ...Read more
Alcohol metabolism: Alcohol has a linear (mostly) metabolism curve. This means that the length of time depends entirely on how much alcohol was consumed. Estimates from cultural experience may or may not apply in your case to the minute, but have been through the courts on many a case of suspected DUI. ...Read more

Depends on the: Test concerned. Blood alcohol will dissipate in about 24 hours or less. Other changes in blood components, e.g. Carbohydrate deficient transferrin may be abnormal for up to two weeks, particularly after drinking for a few days. Ggt and other liver enzymes may be elevated, even after one drinking episode, for 2-3 days. ...Read more
A short time: One beer will rarely raise the blood alcohol level to more than 10 mg percent (0.1 grams percent), and we metabolize that amount in about one hour. So two hours or so after drinking the alcohol level should be zero. However, there are other tests, like ethyl glucuronide and ethyl sulfide, which test alcohol metabolites and they can remain positive for 1-2 days, depending on the test used. ...Read more
If I had 3 cups of vodka straight, how long will it take to leave my system? Will it show up in a blood alcohol test?
24-48 hours & YES!: 3 cups of vodka is about 24 shots - or 24 drinks and it takes roughly 1-2 hours for a drink to clear the averge persons body or longer for females. 3 cups of vodka at one time would most likely kill you or at least take you to the hospital with alcohol poisining & a pumping of your stomach. Don't do it! ...Read more
I drink quite heavily and I'm due for a alcohol blood test in two weeks time. How long will it take for it to be clear on test?
Depends/ metabolism: In the average individual, 1/2 of the existing ethanol will be out of the system in about 1/2 hour, but this is effected both by loading (continuing to drink) & the livers ability to metabolize the product. If your liver cannot remove the product as fast, it stays longer. Abstaining for at least a day should clear most, but longer may be needed. ...Read more
I was required to take a pth blood alcohol sample to determine whether I was drinking. How long after drinking does it take to get a negative?
Depends: On how much you were drinking, how long it was since you had your last drink, and to some extent your tolerance to alcohol and your size. If your alcohol level was 80 mg% (0.08 gms/dl), the legal limit, it would take an average drinker between 6-8 hours to metabolize it to zero. If you were at 160 mg%, it would take 14-18 hours, and if you were at 20 mg% (below legal limit), it would be 1-2 hours. ...Read more
