Is there one specific health condition made worse by alcohol they could discuss.
Fatty liver disease
Why does alcohol cause this?
The liver helps in fighting infections, filtering toxins, managing cholesterol and sugar, and enhancing digestion. It happens because it can regenerate new cells that make it more functional. However, alcohol consumption causes the cells to die, and it worsens when the drinking is excessive and prolonged. It may result in serious liver damage, which reduces the ability to flush out fats from the liver, thus causing fatty liver disease.
What are some symptoms of this health condition?
- Weight loss
- Drowsiness and confusion
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen abdomen
- Abdominal pain
Are there concerns in the medical community about the impact of alcohol on the UK population and whether they are seeing more and more issues caused by this?
Of course, yes. The medical fraternity is concerned about the risk of disability, ill-health, and early mortality on the population. They are questioning its acceptability in the society, availability, and affordability, which accelerates the number of consumers.
