Does 300mg temazepam causes liver damage in a healthy individual that drinks alcohol very moderately?
Unlikely: This is ten times the recommended dose and very ill advised. The risk of liver abnormalities at this level, however, is low. Any liver abnormalities would be more likely due to the moderate drinking than to a single overdose of temazepam. Fortunately this dose is not anywhere near the amount necessary to cause death, but when mixed with alcohol the amount needed to cause death can change hugely. ...Read more

Is liver damage from alcohol linked to one's tolerance for alcohol? Would someone get drunk quicker with a damaged liver? Or the reverse?
It depends.: The liver uses an enzyme to metabolize alcohol. Initially, before liver disease begins, the liver can produce more of that enzyme with increasing alcohol consumption, allowing you to tolerate more alcohol. Once liver damage begins to occur, however, the liver is not able to make as much of that enzyme, and you may get drunk were quickly. If you have liver damage, you should drink no alcohol at all ...Read more

Sir which high enzyme levels indicate significant liver damage due to alcohol? GGT levels or SGPT or SGOT levels..
SGOT / SGPT: These are better markers for damage. SGPT 38, SGOT 28 are not concerning though they're higher than most young men's. Some men run a high GGT even if they don't drink and this shouldn't be taken as proving anything. If you're drinking daily, this might be a good time to cut way back -- who really needs to be doing this? ...Read more
