Misuse of alcohol

Blood alcohol contents irregularities

Blood alcohol contents irregularities in the body is very dangerous in many ways

Blood alcohol contents irregularities: Alcohol affects people differently

Did you know that alcohol consumption is now a global catastrophe affecting people in discriminatively? If this concerns you, join us as an expert from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the leadership of Doctor Dalal Akoury MD in a journey of finding out how alcohol affects people differently in the current societies. Like for instance, if a woman and a man of the same weight drink the same amount of alcohol under the exact same circumstances, the woman will on average have a higher Blood Alcohol Contents (BAC) than the man. This is because women have much less of the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase in their stomachs than men do. If the same man and woman are given an injection of alcohol instead of drinking it they will tend to have the same BAC. This is because when the alcohol is injected it bypasses the alcohol dehydrogenase in the stomach.

Older Males – As men age they tend to produce less alcohol dehydrogenase and are likely to become more intoxicated on smaller amounts of alcohol than younger men. Ironically alcohol dehydrogenase in women is not affected by age.

Menopausal Women – Apparently hormone changes which occur at menopause can cause menopausal women to become more intoxicated on smaller doses of alcohol.

People with Liver Damage – People with liver damage produce less alcohol dehydrogenase than do those with healthy livers and thus can become more intoxicated on smaller doses of alcohol a phenomenon referred to as Reverse Tolerance.

Frequent Heavy Drinkers – produce more alcohol dehydrogenase than other people thus become less intoxicated on larger quantities of alcohol. These people can metabolize up to 38 ml of alcohol per hour whereas the average person metabolizes only around 13 ml per hour.

Blood alcohol contents irregularities: How ant-abuse works

Ant-abuse is the drug that makes people sick if they drink alcohol. The drug ant-abuse binds to the enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase and prevents it from breaking down the acetaldehyde produced by the metabolism of alcohol. Since acetaldehyde is a poison, as it builds up it produces very unpleasant symptoms including facial flushing, headaches, nausea, vomiting, heart palpitations and other extreme physical unpleasantness. Large quantities of alcohol mixed with ant-abuse can lead to death.

Finally, the surface area of the human stomach is only a couple of square feet, but because the small intestine has protrusions called villi, the surface area of the small intestine is thousands and thousands of square feet. Because of this fact, the small intestine is many times more efficient than the stomach at absorbing alcohol. If you want the alcohol to be absorbed into the bloodstream slowly so that your BAC will only rise slowly, your best bet is to keep the alcohol in the stomach for as long as possible. This can be done. There is a valve between the stomach and the small intestine called the pyloric valve when it’s closed, alcohol will stay in the stomach. This valve stays closed when the stomach is full of food and that is why eating a full meal helps keep you from becoming rapidly intoxicated. And for more information on blood alcohol content irregularities, you can always call on doctor Akoury for help.

In her, over two decades of professionalism in addiction treatment doctor, Akoury is registering that even though the effects of alcoholism and drug addiction can affect and be felt in any industry or any organization irrespective of the size whether big or small; workstation alcoholism problems are prevalent in certain establishments than other sectors of our development. Experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center says that certain sectors and industries like those offering food services, construction, mining and drilling, excavation, installation, maintenance, repair, and entertainment are high contributors.

This article is only meant to give guidance and therefore by mentioning some key industries it does not necessarily mean that is actually what happens. Various organizations including the sectors mentioned herein have put in measures that curbs down on the effects of alcoholism and drug addiction at workplaces say doctor Dalal Akoury. As we continue into the discussion, it is very important that before we bring this section to its conclusion, we need to appreciate that this habit hurts the most in two specific ways. The two specific kinds of drinking behavior that significantly contribute to the level of work-performance problems include:

  • Drinking right before the commencement of working hours or during working hours and that includes drinking during break times like at lunch and at company functions.
  • The second way is drinking heavily the night before the resumption of work the following day. This is commonly characterized by hangovers and even feelings of dizziness during working hours the next day.

Workstation alcoholism problems: Workstation problems are universal

Finally, in this article, we have mentioned alcohol quit repeatedly and that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is only the alcoholics who can generate problems in the workplaces. That is a myth which must be ignored because from the research findings it has been demonstrated that the majority of alcohol-related work-performance problems are associated with nondependent drinkers who may occasionally drink too much not exclusively by alcohol-dependent employees.  And besides, family members living with someone’s alcoholism also suffer significant job performance related problems- including poor job performance, lack of focus, absenteeism, increased health-related problems and use of health insurance

She adds that this is achievable with good health, a strong support system, and motivation. Professionally she says that the problem of alcoholism in many cases can go undiagnosed despite being the most frequently used drug worldwide. Even though as things stand right now there is no known cause of alcohol abuse or alcoholism, studies have established that how much you drink can influence your chances of becoming dependent. Nonetheless, there are many brief and easy to use screening methods, designed to diagnose the problem of drinking and alcoholism, and the good news is that they can be self-administered by a patient at the convenience of their homes.

That problem notwithstanding it is important to appreciate that treatment for alcoholism typically can only begin when the alcoholic accepts that the problem exists, and is motivated to stop drinking. The moment acceptance has been granted, then treatment can commence in the following three levels: detoxification, rehabilitation and maintenance of sobriety with each providing an integral step in the process of successfully quitting the use and abuse of alcohol.

Various cancers origins traced to alcoholism

Various cancers origins

Various cancers origins traced to alcoholism and that explains why we must desire to stop alcohol consumption

Various cancers origins traced to alcoholism: Experts views about cancer

Alcohol consumption may be legal, but that has not spared it from being the most dangerous drug. In fact, various cancers origins can be traced from alcohol consumption. That is to say, alcohol use increases the risk of contracting head and neck cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer and breast cancer. These are only a few types of cancer that are closely associated with alcohol consumption. And as we dig deep into that, let’s consider some facts established from various studies concerning the link between alcohol and cancer. According to doctor Dalal Akoury MD President and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, the risk is not as evident in other cancers like cancers of the pancreas, ovary, prostate, stomach, uterus, and bladder. In these cancers cases, studies have not established any close association with alcohol or where there is evidence it was inconsistent.

Nonetheless, for cancers renal cell (kidney) cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), multiple studies have shown that increased alcohol consumption is associated with a decreased risk of cancer. A meta-analysis of the NHL studies (which included 18,759 people with NHL) found a 15 percent lower risk of NHL among alcohol drinkers compared with nondrinkers. The mechanisms by which alcohol consumption would decrease the risks of either renal cell cancer or NHL are not understood.

Various cancers origins traced to alcoholism: Alcohol increases the risks of cancer

Speaking to doctor Akoury a veteran addiction experts for many decades, it is evident that many studies have established numerous ways through which alcohol consumption increases the risk of cancer as follows:

  • Metabolizing (breaking down) ethanol in alcoholic drinks to acetaldehyde, which is a toxic chemical and a probable human carcinogen; acetaldehyde can damage both DNA (the genetic material that makes up genes) and proteins
  • Generating reactive oxygen species (chemically reactive molecules that contain oxygen), which can damage DNA, proteins, and lipids (fats) through a process called oxidation
  • Impairing the body’s ability to break down and absorb a variety of nutrients that may be associated with cancer risk, including vitamin A; nutrients in the vitamin B complex, such as folate; vitamin C; vitamin D; vitamin E; and carotenoids
  • Increasing blood levels of estrogen, a sex hormone linked to the risk of breast cancer

Besides, that alcoholic beverages may also contain a variety of carcinogenic contaminants that are introduced during fermentation and production, such as nitrosamines, asbestos fibers, phenols, and hydrocarbons. With all these immediate action needs to be taken and doctor Akoury and her team of experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center will be glad to do just that if you can schedule an appointment today.

Various cancers origins traced to alcoholism: Dangers of multi-drug abuse

Epidemiologic research shows that people who use both alcohol and tobacco have much greater risks of developing cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx (throat), larynx, and esophagus than people who use either alcohol or tobacco alone. In fact, for oral and pharyngeal cancers, the risks associated with using both alcohol and tobacco are multiplicative; that is, they are greater than would be expected from adding the individual risks associated with alcohol and tobacco together.
