Complications of alcohol abuse
Alcohol is a known depressant that has detrimental effects on our physical and mental well-being. It can cause aggression, poor work and academic performance, and isolation. Physically, it can cause a myriad of conditions, starting with the liver and other major organs. Alcohol abuse and intoxication can cause:
- Liver disease – our blood is filtered through the liver and continuously high levels of alcohol in the blood can cause the liver to become inflammed (alcoholic-induced hepatitis). Persistent alcoholism can cause permanent damage and scarring of the liver known as cirrhosis.
- Digestion problems – alcohol can also cause inflammation of the esophageal and stomach lining. With a damaged stomach, our body cannot absorb important nutrients like Vitamin B. Drinking can also damage the pancreas, messing with insulin and glucose regulation.
- Heart problems – Excessive alcohol can cause hypertension and increases a person’s risk of getting heart disease.
- Diabetes – Alcohol damages the liver which is responsible for glucose production and regulation (along with the pancreas)
