Does drinking alcohol thin the blood? If so, how long do the blood thinning effects last?

Coagulation: 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.

Anticoagulant (Definition)

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?

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

How long does it take after having one beer to have a negative blood alcohol test?

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

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
