New study identifies targets to lessen the effects of alcoholic liver disease

In 2015, nearly half of 80,000 deaths due to liver diseases in the United States were related to alcoholic liver disease (ALD), according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Chronic alcohol consumption causes abnormal fat accumulation in liver cells (steatosis) and liver fibrosis, which can lead to hepatitis, cirrhosis, and sometimes liver cancer. A new study in The American Journal of Pathology offers insights into the cellular aging that may trigger excessive fibrosis formation in the liver as well as possible means to inhibit these changes, which may lead to new therapeutic approaches for patients with ALD. “We believe that senescent cells contribute to age-...

What Happens to Your Body When You're an Alcoholic

Full disclosure before we start: I am an alcoholic. We don't need to do the weird backhanded bragging so many ex-drinkers like to engage in where I try to tell you nonchalantly just how much I used to consume - suffice it to say I drank enough that I felt like I should stop drinking, which I did four years ago and haven't really looked back. While my body feels better now than it did when I was drinking, it certainly still bears some of the outward physical effects of alcohol abuse. I have a weird bloated stomach even though I'm skinny everywhere else. My eyes still have those dark circles under them. I still have that scar on my arm from the time I tried to start an impromptu rodeo while...

Evidence for a Gender-Related Effect of Alcoholism on Brain Volumes, American Journal of Psychiatry

When we adjusted brain volumes for intracranial volume, it was possible to include all four groups in a single analysis. The results are shown in Table 4. All of the brain ratios, except for ventricular volume/(intracranial volume–ventricular volume), differed significantly between alcoholics and comparison subjects (ANOVA, main effect for diagnosis). The alcoholics had a larger proportion of their intracranial volume occupied by CSF than the comparison subjects and had a smaller proportion of intracranial gray and white matter than comparison subjects. There was a significant interaction between diagnosis and gender in the analysis of gray matter ratio. Simple contrast tests within genders...

12 horrible health effects of alcoholism, Fellowship of the Minds

12 horrible health effects of alcoholism Yesterday, while surfing the net, I happened across a mug shot of 63-year-old actor/singer David Cassidy who, 5 days ago on January 10, had been arrested for DUI in Los Angeles. This is his third DUI arrest. I was stunned by his mug shot. While none of us looks the same in our 60s as we did in our 20s, the man in the mug shot bears not even the faintest resemblance to the Cassidy I remember from The Partridge Family. Well, that post clearly struck a nerve. One commenter inexplicably accused me of coddling Cassidy, while another did the exact opposite. A psychiatrist would find their over-reactions — of projection and denial — fascinating...

The Effects Of Alcohol In The Body (INFOGRAPHIC), HuffPost

Most of us know that drinking too much can lead to car accidents, addictions or worse. We know drinking a little can make us giggly or weepy, lose our balance or lose our lunch, feel ravenously hungry the morning after or want nothing more than to be still in a dark room until that terrible pounding subsides. But few of us know much more than the above, especially when it comes to what's actually going on inside the body to create these reactions. In fact, alcohol, even in the smallest doses, affects nearly every system in the body, from the brain to circulation to immunity. And while at low to moderate doses, alcohol does seem to provide certain health benefits -- including a longer life...

3 Ways Alcoholism Affects the Whole Family

It is easy to think that alcoholism only affects the drinker. They are the ones who get drunk, right? However, that is a rationalization often used by the alcoholic himself. He cannot see the damage he is causing in the lives of those around him, nor does he care to. That would interfere with his drinking. However, alcoholism does impact the whole family and its reach can even expand far beyond that. This post will show several ways in which alcoholism impacts the family, including these topics: The alcoholic is often an erratic creature. While drinking, he might start off jovial and full of fun. When the drinks become too much, however, he might become morose, saddened by some long-ago...

Whar are the evil effects of alcoholism; what is the treatment?

Whar are the evil effects of alcoholism; what is the treatment? Whar are the evil effects of alcoholism; what is the treatment? It is said very often that modest drinking relives tension and keeps the mind calm. But the good effects of moderate drinking are yet to be proved. It is certain however that alcohol drinking impairs judgement, slows down nerve impulses, causes disturbance in muscular coordination and gener­ally retards the time taken by the body to show response to situations. This will be indeed very dangerous under certain circumstances. In addition to this, alcohol addiction has the following bad effects on the various parts of the body. 1. Alcohol lowers the blood sugar...
