Is It Normal To Crave Alcohol
On Saturday I had way way to mich alcohol. Vomited 3 times. I still feel a bit ill. I'd thst normal ?
Yes: Alcohol causes extreme dehydration by inhibiting a hormone called ADH (vasopressin) released from your pituitary. You end up urinating a lot and in the processes depleting not just volume but other electrolytes and minerals. I would suggest hydration and taking a multi vitamin and/ or eating magnesium rich foods (avocados etc). Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs are also useful taken with food. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Would ALT of 43 be considered normal? im from Australia and the cut off is 40 my ALT was 48 1 month before..can alcohol cause slight increases?
Mild ALT elevation: Alcohol usually causes AST elevation. Ask your doctor to do full liver test panel. Your Alt is going down. I would not worry if all other liver tests are normal. In any case do not drink more than one drink a day even if your liver tests are normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After two months sober post acute withdrawl still seems to be getting worse. When does this peak and how long until i can live a normal life? Alcohol
See your doctor: post-acute withdrawal symptoms can last for several months, but should be getting better rather than worse.

Your doctor can refer you to a psychiatrist to discuss. Also need regular exercise, good nutrition. ...Read more

How long of abstinence from alcohol will give a normal CDT test level. I need this to regain my driving licence?
NinetyDaysToFreedom: The half-life of Carbohydrate-Deficient Transferrin (CDT, the substance tested in the CDT Test) is on average 17 days. And it takes about 5 half-lives to get near zero, assuming you stopped all alcohol intake. A half- life is the time for the amount to halve (duh).So 5X17=85 days so round up to 90 days or three months.Suggestion, at that point you'll be well on your way to having stopped drinking! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High liver count due to alochol, now normal. Had 2 days of alcohol after that. Test 2 days later normal. But weird bloated feeling. Enlarged ?
Liver and Alcohol: This is very consistent to the damage that can be done by alcohol and how the liver can bounce back. But, abusing your liver again makes me wonder how many times you will get away with experimenting with it's health. The second set of labs after drinking for two days may very well have been too early for accuracy. The bloating and swollen liver is exactly what should be happening. ...Read more
