Do alcohol and cocaine abuse alter the course of HIV-associated dementia complex? (1/893)

Although psychoactive drugs are commonly used by AIDS patients, it is unclear whether commonly abused drugs, such as cocaine and ethanol, affect the course of HIV-associated dementia (HADC). Epidemiological studies have resulted in conflicting conclusions as to what role, if any, abused drugs play in HADC. In this review we discuss the clinical and pathological evidence that cocaine and ethanol might exacerbate the detrimental effects of HIV infection on the brain. We also review studies of cocaine and ethanol effects on various components of the immune system both in the presence and absence of retroviral infection. Data from these studies indicate that cocaine and ethanol have profound effects on the immune system that, in many respects, are enhanced by retroviral infection. We conclude that abused drugs likely affect the course of HADC but that proof awaits an examination of their interactive effects in an appropriate in vivo system of retroviral encephalitis.  (+info)

Regional cerebral glucose metabolism and blood flow in a patient with Marchiafava-Bignami disease. (2/893)

We report functional neuroimaging studies of a 54-year-old man with Marchiafava-Bignami disease (MBD). Glucose metabolic images obtained by [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography showed diffusely reduced whole brain metabolism and strongly decreased metabolism in the frontal and parietal lobes, orbital gyrus, and thalamus. Cerebral perfusion images showed a similarly decreased radioactivity pattern as the metabolic images. Functional neuroimages would be useful for understanding the pathophysiologic processes of MBD.  (+info)

Identifying alcohol-related harm in young drinkers: the role of accident and emergency departments. (3/893)

Data are presented from a screening study of ambulant attendees at two London Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments. Among young people (aged 16-24 years), 37.2% were drinking harmfully [an Alcohol-Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) score of 8 or more]; 17.3% admitted to drinking alcohol in the 6 h prior to attendance; and 14.6% considered that their attendance was alcohol related. Young women were as likely as men to score 8 or over. This age group had nearly twice the odds of scoring highly on the AUDIT, compared to those over 25 years old, and were more likely to report that their attendance was alcohol related. Screening in A&E departments would identify considerable numbers of young people who might benefit from brief intervention, but the problems of doing so are acknowledged.  (+info)

Alcoholism in the elderly. (4/893)

Alcohol abuse and alcoholism are common but underrecognized problems among older adults. One third of older alcoholic persons develop a problem with alcohol in later life, while the other two thirds grow older with the medical and psychosocial sequelae of early-onset alcoholism. The common definitions of alcohol abuse and dependence may not apply as readily to older persons who have retired or have few social contacts. Screening instruments can be used by family physicians to identify older patients who have problems related to alcohol. The effects of alcohol may be increased in elderly patients because of pharmacologic changes associated with aging. Interactions between alcohol and drugs, prescription and over-the-counter, may also be more serious in elderly persons. Physiologic changes related to aging can alter the presentation of medical complications of alcoholism. Management of alcohol withdrawal in elderly persons should be closely supervised by a health care professional. Alcohol treatment programs with an elder-specific focus may improve outcomes in some patients.  (+info)

Substance abuse and the kidney. (5/893)

Substance abuse has been increasing steadily in the UK and some other countries. Recent evidence suggests more than 40% of young people have tried illicit drugs at some time. There are numerous medical consequences to recreational drug use, and a physician should always consider substance abuse in any unexplained illness. The renal complications of drug abuse are also becoming more frequent, and may encompass a spectrum of glomerular, interstitial and vascular diseases. Although some substances are directly nephrotoxic, a number of other mechanisms are also involved. These effects are often chronic and irreversible, but occasionally acute with possible recovery. The rapid growth of illicit drug use is clearly a major public health problem. We review the commonly used substances of abuse and their associations with renal disease.  (+info)

Early changes in left ventricular function in chronic asymptomatic alcoholics: relation to the duration of heavy drinking. (6/893)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to assess preclinical cardiac abnormalities in chronic alcoholic patients and possible differences among alcoholics related to the duration of heavy drinking. BACKGROUND: Chronic excessive alcohol intake has been reported as a possible cause of dilated cardiomyopathy. However, before the appearance of severe cardiac dysfunction, subtle signs of cardiac abnormalities may be identified. METHODS: We studied 30 healthy subjects (age 44 +/- 8 years) and 89 asymptomatic alcoholics (age 45 +/- 8 years, p = NS) divided into three groups, with short (S, 5-9 years, n = 31), intermediate (I, 10-15 years, n = 31) and long (L, 16-28 years, n = 27) duration of alcoholism. Transmitral early (E) and late (A) Doppler flow velocities, E/A ratio, deceleration time of E (DT) and isovolumic relaxation time (IVRT) were obtained. Left ventricular (LV) wall thickness and volumes were also determined by echocardiography, and LV mass and ejection fraction (EF) were calculated. RESULTS: The alcoholics had prolonged IVRT (92 +/- 11 vs. 83 +/- 7 ms, p < 0.001), longer DT (180 +/- 20 vs. 170 +/- 10 ms, p < 0.01), smaller E/A (1.25 +/- 0.34 vs. 1.40 +/- 0.32, p < 0.05), larger LV volumes (73 +/- 8 vs. 65 +/- 7 ml/m2, p < 0.001 for end-diastolic volume index; 25 +/- 4 vs. 21 +/- 2 ml/m2, p < 0.001 for end-systolic volume index), higher LV mass index (92 +/- 14 vs. 78 +/- 8 g/m2, p < 0.001) and thicker posterior wall (9 +/- 1 vs. 8 +/- 1 mm, p < 0.001). Ejection fraction did not differ between the two groups (66 +/- 4 vs. 67 +/- 2%). Deceleration time of the early transmitral flow velocity was longer in groups L (187 +/- 18 ms) and I (185 +/- 16 ms) compared with group S (168 +/- 17 ms, p < 0.001 for L and I vs. S), whereas A was higher in group L compared with S (43 +/- 10 vs. 51 +/- 10 cm/s, p < 0.005). Multiple regression analysis identified duration of heavy drinking as the most important variable affecting DT and A. CONCLUSIONS: Left ventricular dilation with preserved EF and impaired LV relaxation characterized LV function in chronic asymptomatic alcoholic patients. It appeared that the progression of abnormalities in LV diastolic filling related to the duration of alcoholism.  (+info)

The burden of alcohol misuse on an inner-city general hospital. (7/893)

Alcohol consumption in the UK has been increasing steadily. We prospectively studied the burden on hospital services caused by overt alcohol misuse, in an inner-city hospital in north-west England. All Accident & Emergency (A&E) patients were assessed to determine whether their hospital attendance was alcohol-related, and whether this resulted in admission and/or generated new out-patient appointments. Over 2 months, 1915 patients attended A&E with alcohol-related problems, accounting for 12% of attendances; 50% were aged 18-39 years, and acute alcohol intoxication was the commonest presenting complaint. Overall, 6.2% of all hospital admissions were due to alcohol-related problems. Over 2800 new out-patient visits were likely to have been generated over an 18-month period from initial attendance with an alcohol-related problem, mostly for orthopaedic clinics. The burden placed by overt alcohol-related problems on hospitals is enormous, both in terms of the emergency and out-patient services. The implementation of education, screening and intervention strategies in A&E departments, and employment of key trained personnel, should be considered, to optimize the clinical management of these patients.  (+info)

Do drinking surveys predict changes in population-based alcohol problem indicators? (8/893)

We examined per capita alcohol consumption and survey-based measures of alcohol use in Ontario in relation to indicators of alcohol problems for the period 1977-1997. Per capita consumption and percentage of daily drinkers were significantly related to problem indicators, but percentage of drinkers and percentage of heavy drinkers were not. Of the measures we examined, per capita consumption was the strongest indicator of alcohol problems.  (+info)

Alcohol dependence and alcohol abuse or harmful use cause substantial morbidity and mortality. Alcohol-use disorders are associated with depressive episodes, severe anxiety, insomnia, suicide, and abuse of other drugs. Continued heavy alcohol use also shortens the onset of heart disease, stroke, cancers, and liver cirrhosis, by affecting the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and immune systems. Heavy drinking can also cause mild anterograde amnesias, temporary cognitive deficits, sleep problems, and peripheral neuropathy; cause gastrointestinal problems; decrease bone density and production of blood cells; and cause fetal alcohol syndrome. Alcohol-use disorders complicate assessment and treatment of other medical and psychiatric problems. Standard criteria for alcohol dependence-the more severe disorder-can be used to reliably identify people for whom drinking causes major physiological consequences and persistent impairment of quality of life and ability to function. Clinicians should routinely ...
According to the Department of Health, majority of people in Hong Kong started to develop drinking habit at 18-21 years of age in 2014/2015. Amongst them, 16.8% had scored higher than 3 in the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test for Consumption (AUDIT-C) (an abbreviated version of the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test, or AUDIT, designed by the World Health Organization(WHO)), while 3.5% had even scored 8 or above in the test. With higher prevalence to begin drinking within 18 and 23 years old, university students could have established higher tendency of harmful drinking and alcohol dependence as compared with other age groups. Therefore, early interventions such as the evidence-based Alcohol Brief Intervention (ABI) suggested by the WHO are particularly needed to target university drinkers who are 5% more likely to develop higher frequency of drinking in later of their lives compared with other age groups ...
A recently published Yale-affiliated study may change the way doctors treat alcohol-use disorders in patients who smoke cigarettes.. Smokers recovering from alcohol dependence often continue smoking in an effort to alleviate the discomfort of withdrawal, according to the study. But the researchers determined that this cigarette use has an adverse impact on patients likelihood of staying sober in the long-run. Patients in treatment for alcohol-use disorders who smoke cigarettes are far less likely to relapse if they are concurrently treated for cigarette smoking habits, the study indicated.. What we found is that adults with a past alcohol-use disorder who were smokers were more likely to meet criteria for alcohol-use disorders three years later, compared to adults with a past alcohol-use disorder who were not smoking, first author and Yale School of. Medicine psychiatry professor Andrea Weinberger said.. Past research on the subject has generally focused on how alcohol use affects patients ...
Aims: To report on alcohol use disorders and hazardous drinking from a survey of university students in England in 2008-2009.. Methods: A cross-sectional survey using the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) was carried out in a purposive sample of 770 undergraduates from seven universities across England. Results: Sixty-one per cent of the sample (65% men; 58% women) scored positive (8+) on the AUDIT, comprising 40% hazardous drinkers, 11% harmful drinkers and 10% with probable dependence. There were large and significant differences in mean AUDIT scores between the universities taking part in the survey. Two universities in the North of England showed a significantly higher combined mean AUDIT score than two universities in the Midlands which in turn showed a significantly higher mean AUDIT score than three universities in the South. When the effects of university attended were extracted in a binary logistic regression analysis, independent significant predictors of AUDIT positive ...
BACKGROUND Alcohol Use Disorders (AUDs) among tuberculosis (TB) patients are associated with nonadherence and poor treatment outcomes. Studies from Tuberculosis Research Centre (TRC), Chennai have reported that alcoholism has been one of the major reasons for default and mortality in under the DOTS programme in South India. Hence, it is planned to conduct a study to estimate prevalence of alcohol use and AUDs among TB patients attending the corporation health centres in Chennai, India. METHODOLOGY This is a cross-sectional cohort study covering 10 corporation zones at Chennai and it included situational assessment followed by screening of TB patients by a WHO developed Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test AUDIT scale. Four zones were randomly selected and all TB patients treated during July to September 2009 were screened with AUDIT scale for alcohol consumption. RESULTS Out of 490 patients, 66% were males, 66% were 35 years and above, 57% were married, 58% were from the low monthly income
Alcohol abuse is an important public health problem, frequently unrecognized among people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), and requires investigation and intervention. It is usually associated with lower adherence to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). It can also produce adverse clinical outcomes, such as changes in certain HIV markers, particularly CD4 cell counts and HIV viral loads (VLs). Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of alcohol abuse among PLWHA, its associated risk factors and effects on CD4 cell counts and HIV VLs in southern Brazil. Between December 2012 and July 2013, 343 patients were interviewed at a reference hospital in southern Brazil. The instrument used was the Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT), and a cutoff of eight points or more was applied. Socioeconomic, demographic, clinical and laboratory data were also collected. The statistical analysis included a Poisson regression to evaluate the factors associated with alcohol use disorder, and a
This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and determine the optimum cut-off scores for clinical use of the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression scale (CES-D) and Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) against a reference psychiatric diagnostic interview, in TB and anti-retroviral therapy (ART) patients in primary care in Zambia. Methods. This was a cross-sectional study in 16 primary level care clinics. Consecutive sampling was used to select 649 participants who started TB treatment or ART in the preceding month. Participants were first interviewed using the CES-D and AUDIT, and subsequently with a psychiatric diagnostic interview for current major depressive disorder (MDD) and alcohol use disorders (AUDs) using the Mini-International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI). The diagnostic accuracy was calculated using the Area Under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve (AUROC). The optimum cut-off scores for clinical use were calculated using sensitivity ...

OBJECTIVES: Most individuals with alcohol use disorders receive no treatment for their disorder. Past research suggests that a major reason for this is that individuals with alcohol use disorders do not perceive a need for treatment. The research presented here had two objectives. First, to provide updated estimates of the percentage of individuals with alcohol use disorders who perceive a need for treatment, and among those, the percentage who receive any treatment for alcohol use disorders.
The university environment reinforces positive alcohol-related expectations and motivations for drinking among undergraduate students. High levels of hazardous consumption in this population lead to significant negative alcohol-related consequences, for individuals and those around them. This study sought to explore the contexts in which those who engage in hazardous drinking consume alcohol, their perceptions of safety and harm, and receptivity to health messages. Undergraduate university students (n = 69; aged 17 - 24 of both genders [57% female]) were purposively recruited into one of seven focus groups after screening with the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) to select for hazardous drinking (score, >8) or moderate drinking. A focus group interview schedule was developed, which was informed by theory and tested for validity by a panel of experts. Qualitative analysis of the data revealed four thematic clusters: positive expectations; inescapable culture; defining
Some sources confirm that 25-30% patients visiting the ER meet the criteria for at risk drinking. The CAGE questionnaire is designed to assess for LIFETIME ETOH dependence and is no longer recommended as a screening tool because it is geared towards the DSM-IV diagnoses of substance abuse and dependence; plus it is not as sensitive for detecting the full spectrum of unhealthy use. However, the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)-C is best used for primary care settings.. AUD consist of alcohol dependence, alcohol abuse, or harmful use. These disorders are common in all developed countries and are more prevalent in men than in women, with lower but still substantial rates in developing countries.. However, most people with AUD are difficult to identify because they are likely to have jobs and families and to present with general complaints, such as malaise, insomnia, anxiety, sadness, or a range of medical problems.. In response to the high prevalence of this disease, the American ...
An accurate alcohol history cannot be obtained by merely asking how many units an individual drinks, but should be systematically approached. This may be particularly pertinent within primary care, given that patients and staff often develop close and trusting relationships with whole families. Failure to adopt a systematic screening approach is unfortunate, as specific alcohol screening tools are available. In particular, the questionnaire, Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT), can reliably detect hazardous drinking in the primary care setting.(2) Perhaps more importantly, AUDIT has been shown to be patient-friendly and inoffensive when used to obtain a patients medical history (see Figure 1).(3).

BACKGROUND: For alcohol, the association with socioeconomic status (SES) is different than for other public health challenges - the associations are complex, and heterogeneous between socioeconomic groups. Specifically, the relationship between alcohol consumption per se and adverse health consequences seems to vary across SES. This observation is called the alcohol harm paradox. This study aims to describe different patterns of alcohol use and potential problems. Next, the associations between sub-groups characterized by different patterns of alcohol use and potential problems, and age, gender, educational level, full-time employment, occupational level and income is analysed. METHODS: Employing data from the ongoing cross-sectional WIRUS-study, N = 4311 participants were included in the present study. Individual response patterns of the ten-item Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) were analysed and latent class analysis (LCA) was used to identify latent groups. Next, the ...

Description: Background: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are responsible for 38 million deaths annually, which translates to 68% of global deaths every year. Incidence and prevalence of NCDs are increasing rapidly and the poor bear a disproportionate burden. The increase in NCDs has been primarily due to a proliferation of modifiable risk factors, such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption. Substance abuse, mainly of alcohol, is a common cause of health problems in almost all countries across the globe. Alcohol abuse is a major contributor to the global burden of diseases and accounts for 3.3 million deaths, approximately 5.9% of all global deaths, annually. Alcohol misuse is the fifth leading risk factor for premature death and disability and is the top risk factor among people between 15 and 49 years of age. The rise of harmful use of alcohol in South Africa contributes to the disease burden faced by the country, with alcohol-related disorders ...

This is a carefully designed animal study, which looked in detail at the effects of alcohol on the brains of adolescent rhesus monkeys. The fact that it used adolescent primates rather than adult rats or mice makes the results more relevant to humans. It also used a control group for comparison of brain changes. The results suggest that chronic alcohol consumption may alter the process of brain development in adolescents.. The researchers suggest that this early damage may be permanent, and could increase an individuals vulnerability to alcohol-related disorders. Such early damage may also underlie deficits in spatial learning, short-term memory and higher-level cognitive function (executive function) seen in adult alcoholics.. However, only limited conclusions can be drawn from a study in just seven monkeys. Also, the monkeys drank a substantial amount of alcohol every day for 11 months, and the teenage human equivalent would presumably be heavy, chronic alcohol misuse, rather than episodic ...

Objective: The relationship between tuberculosis (TB) treatment and alcohol use disorders over time is under-researched. The aim of this investigation was to study alcohol use and TB medication adherence and its predictors among TB patients over a period of 6 months.. Methods: A longitudinal investigation was carried out with new TB and TB retreatment patients systematically selected from two hospitals and had screened positive for hazardous or harmful alcohol use in Sisaket Province in Thailand. Alcohol use disorders were measured with Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT)-C at baseline, 3 months and 6 months.. Results: Of the 295 TB patients who were screened with AUDIT-C, 72 (24.4%) tested positive for hazardous or harmful alcohol use. At 6 months, 72 TB patients had completed the followup. At the 6-month follow-up, hazardous or harmful drinking was reduced by 84.7%. Multivariate logistic regression analysis using generalised estimation equation modelling found that alcohol use ...
Kaner E, et al. [15], DOnofrio G, et al. [22] Kaner and colleagues [15] undertook a pragmatic trial of three brief intervention strategies in primary care settings as part of the large multi-center Screening and Intervention Programme for Sensible drinking (SIPS) trial conducted in the UK. Over 3500 patients across 29 primary care practices participated in this cluster randomized trial. Practices were assigned to one of three interventions of increasing levels of intensity: simple feedback plus a patient information leaflet (provided for all interventions); a five-minute structured brief intervention delivered by practice staff; or a brief intervention followed by a 20-minute motivational interviewing session delivered at a follow-up visit by an alcohol counselor. The primary outcome was drinking status as measured by the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT).. Hazardous and harmful drinking decreased in all treatment conditions at six and 12 months, but the odds of having a ...
Background: Topiramate (Topamax) decreases cravings for alcohol by reducing corticomesolimbic dopamine release. A preliminary trial showed that topiramate improved drinking patterns in patients with alcohol dependence. Johnson and colleagues conducted a more definitive randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of topiramate in the treatment of alcoholism.. The Study: The study included patients 18 to 65 years of age with alcohol dependence. Male participants drank at least 35 drinks per week, and female participants drank more than 28 drinks per week. Participants also had negative urine toxicology findings, with limited exceptions, and a score of 8 or more on the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test. Exclusion criteria were extensive and mostly related to severe alcoholism, other psychiatric or health conditions (e.g., Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th ed., axis I disorders), substance abuse over the ...

A new study conducted in France analyzed the nationwide data for admitted patients in hospitals between 2008 and 2013 found that alcohol use disorders were significantly associated with dementia.. The study supports that alcohol use disorder be recognized as a major risk factor for all types of dementia, especially for early-onset dementia. The analysis also showed that the risks are remain unchanged even after abstinence from drinking, citing that lifelong damage had already been inflicted on the brain.. In their closing, the researchers recommended that the risk of alcohol use disorder should be recognized, and that appropriate action such as early detection and intervention should be taken to reduce heavy drinking, and delay or prevent the onset of dementia..

TY - JOUR. T1 - Alcohol use disorders. T2 - Screening and diagnosis. AU - Maisto, Stephen A.. AU - Saitz, Richard. PY - 2003/1/1. Y1 - 2003/1/1. N2 - The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of empirically supported, primarily self-report methods of screening and diagnosis related to alcohol use disorders (AUDs). The discussion of screening instruments focuses on the primary care setting, and the diagnosis instruments discussion centers on the alcohol (and other drug) treatment setting. The literature shows that the AUDIT and the CAGE are the most widely validated methods of screening for AUDs in primary care and may be applied readily in that context. Similarly, a number of instruments designed to derive DSM-IV (and ICD-10) AUD diagnoses, as well as constructs related to how AUDs are defined, are available and can meet a variety of clinical needs. Future research priorities include further development of brief methods to identify hazardous drinkers or individuals who have an AUD, ...
Alcohol use disorders, defined as clinically significant impairment or distress from the use of alcohol, are common in Canadian society.1 In addition, 15% to 20% of Canadians who do not meet the criteria for an alcohol use disorder drink more than what is recommended by the low-risk guidelines.2 Alcohol-related harms attributable to both at-risk drinking and alcohol use disorders are responsible for 9.3% of disability-adjusted life-years lost and 7.1% of all premature deaths in Canada.3 The costs to the health care system are high.. As Moyer and Finney4 outline in their clinical review, patients with at-risk drinking and alcohol use disorders can be easily identified with validated screening procedures. Conversely, when physicians rely on case identification alone, patients with at-risk drinking and milder alcohol use disorders (who typically have stable lives and few consequences from drinking) are often missed. These patients, however, are at high risk of harm and of progression to more severe ...

The proportion of Aboriginal mothers in Western Australia with an alcohol diagnosis (23.1%) is ten times greater than for non-Aboriginal mothers (2.3%). There has been a six-fold increase in the percentage of non-Aboriginal births with a maternal alcohol diagnosis recorded during pregnancy and a 100-fold increase for Aboriginal births. Around 70% of the mothers of children diagnosed with FAS did not have an alcohol diagnosis recorded during pregnancy and 18% of the mothers had no record of an alcohol diagnosis. ...
The co-occurrence of schizophrenia and alcohol use disorders often leads to poor treatment retention and adherence. Both empirical research and statements of best practices suggest that interventions including motivational interviewing principles can enhance treatment engagement and improve outcomes. This article describes a set of exercises used within a motivational enhancement protocol for outpatients with schizophrenia-spectrum and alcohol use disorders. We describe how each exercise was tailored to the target population, and how it is designed to enhance motivation to change and treatment engagement. Examples from clinical transcripts are used to demonstrate how motivational interviewing is adapted to the cognitive, social, and environmental circumstances associated with schizophrenia.

Results Four trials (n=618) were included, comparing a brief motivational interview with usual care (2 trials), personalised feedback or an educational brochure. In two studies, motivational interview was significantly associated with a reduction in alcohol-use while two studies showed no effect attributable to the intervention. Successful interventions were either delivered at a distance from the event or included booster sessions. Motivational interview favoured a reduction in alcohol-related problems in all but one study. Benefits were sustained over 12 months.. ...
The individual and societal cost of alcohol use disorders (TUAL), present in 10% of the population in France, is considerable. Despite psychotherapeutic and drug addiction treatment, the relapse rate remains very high, partly because of their very frequent cognitive disorders. In fact, more than 75% of TUAL patients present to varying degrees neuropsychological alterations that are only rarely detected and never treated. However, these cognitive disorders limit the benefit of psychotherapeutic care, reduce compliance with pharmacological treatments and hinder the patients ability to change his behavior with respect to alcohol. An innovative way to promote the maintenance of the therapeutic contract, and therefore to reduce alcohol consumption in these patients, would be to improve their cognitive functioning. The objective of this study is to measure the efficacy of a non-drug treatment, based on a specific and personalized cognitive remediation program, compared to a standard treatment in Day ...
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Too often todays headlines bring news of yet another alcohol-related tragedy involving a young person-a case of fatal alcohol poisoning on a college campus or a late-night drinking-driving crash. People ages 18 to 25 often are in the news, but are they really at higher risk than anyone else for problems involving alcohol? Some of the most important new data to emerge on young adult drinking were collected through a recent nationwide survey, the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC). According to these data, in 2001-2002 about 70 percent of young adults in the United States, or about 19 million people, consumed alcohol in the year preceding the survey. Its not only that young people are drinking but the way they drink that puts them at such high risk for alcohol-related problems. Research consistently shows that people tend to drink the heaviest in their late teens and early to mid-twenties (1,2). Young adults are ...
Adolescence is considered to be the most important period for the prevention of substance use and misuse (SUM). The aim of this study was to investigate the problem of SUM and to establish potentially important factors associated with SUM in Kosovar adolescents. Multi-stage simple random sampling was used to select participants. At the end of their high school education, 980 adolescents (623 females) ages 17 to 19 years old were enrolled in the study. The prevalence of smoking, alcohol consumption (measured by Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test-AUDIT), and illegal drug use (dependent variables), as well as socio-demographic, scholastic, familial, and sports-related factors (independent variables), were assessed. Boys smoke cigarettes more often than girls with daily-smoking prevalence of 16% among boys and 9% among girls (OR = 1.85, 95% = CI 1.25-2.75). The prevalence of harmful drinking (i.e., AUDIT scores of >10) is found to be alarming (41% and 37% for boys and girls, respectively; OR = 1.13

RNA in cells is always associated with RNA-binding proteins that regulate all aspects of RNA metabolism including RNA splicing, export from the nucleus, RNA localization, mRNA turn-over as well as translation. Given their diverse functions, cells express a variety of RNA-binding proteins, which play important roles in the pathologies of a number of diseases. In this review we focus on the effect of alcohol on different RNA-binding proteins and their possible contribution to alcohol-related disorders, and discuss the role of these proteins in the development of neurological diseases and cancer. We further discuss the conventional methods and newer techniques that are employed to identify RNA-binding proteins.

The association between work trajectories and AUDs w
The objective of this paper was to determine separately the lifetime risk of drinking alcohol for chronic disease and acute injury outcomes as a basis for setting general population drinking guidelines for Australia. Relative risk data for different levels of average consumption of alcohol were combined with age, sex, and disease-specific risks of dying from an alcohol-attributable chronic disease. For injury, combinations of the number of drinks per occasion and frequency of drinking occasions were combined to model lifetime risk of death for different drinking pattern scenarios. A lifetime risk of injury death of 1 in 100 is reached for consumption levels of about three drinks daily per week for women, and three drinks five times a week for men. For chronic disease death, lifetime risk increases by about 10% with each 10-gram (one drink) increase in daily average alcohol consumption, although risks are higher for women than men, particularly at higher average consumption levels. Lifetime risks ...

Study shows that alcohol consumption, in particular heavy drinking and alcohol-use disorders, is an important risk factor for the incidence of pneumonia
704,803 (2.7%) patients identified with AUDs had a threefold higher risk of death (HR = 2.98; 95% CI: 2.96-3.00) and died on average 12.2 years younger (men: 10.4, 95% CI: 10.3-10.5; women: 13.7, 95% CI: 13.6-13.9). AUDs were associated with significantly higher risks of hospital admission for all alcohol-attributable disease categories: digestive diseases, cancers (exception: breast cancer), cardiovascular diseases, dementia, infectious diseases, and injuries. Elevated risks were highest for liver diseases that were associated with about two-third of deaths in patients with AUDs (men: 64.3%; women: 71.1%).. CONCLUSIONS ...
On November 5, 2019, an OHA Administrative Judge (AJ) issued a decision in which he determined that an Individuals DOE access authorization should not be restored. The Individual had been diagnosed with Alcohol Use Disorder, Severe, (AUD) by a DOE Psychologist (the DOE Psychologist), after having been voluntarily hospitalized for treatment of his alcohol disorder. In addition, a court had issued a restraining order against the Individual after finding that he had committed a ba. ttery on a household member. At the hearing conducted by the AJ, the Individual attempted to mitigate the concerns arising from his AUD, by showing that he regularly attends Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings, had not consumed alcohol for six months, and had begun undergoing Individual counseling a week before the hearing. He also testified that he intended to obtain an AA sponsor and to begin working AAs 12-Step Program. After the hearing, he submitted a letter from an Individual indicating that he was the ...
In 2015, a study found that 30% of Americans have suffered an alcohol-use disorder at some point in their lives-but only 20% of those suffering seek treatment.

A new report from the UK finds that when it comes to treating alcohol-related ailments, middle-aged patients cost Englands National Health Service significantly more than younger adults.. And while it makes sense that booze would take more of a toll on older adults than the younger set - after all, theyve got quite a few more years of drinking under their proverbial belts - the magnitude of the cost difference is whats startling: Alcohol-related hospital admissions for 55- to 74-year olds cost 10 times that of 16- to 24-year-olds. The number of older patients admitted for alcohol-related problems was about eight times higher than the number of younger patients admitted.. The report, from the UKs national agency on alcohol misuse, found that overall alcohol-related hospital admissions cost England nearly £2 billion in 2010-2011.. Agency chief Eric Appleby said its a common perception in England that young people are responsible for rising alcohol treatment costs, but our findings show ...

  • Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is the most serious type of FASD. (
  • Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder, or FASD, refers to a range of conditions resulting from pre-natal exposure to maternal drinking. (
  • Fetal alcohol syndrome is a severe form of a spectrum of mental and physical disabilities called fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) that can affect children's development with long-lasting consequences. (
  • Part of the reason FASD can be difficult to diagnose is because infants with similar amounts of prenatal alcohol exposure may have vastly different outcomes. (
  • In addition, it is estimated that one out of 13 women who consumed any alcohol at any point or frequency during pregnancy delivered a child with FASD. (
  • FASD is an umbrella term that describes a range of effects that can occur in someone whose mother consumed alcohol during pregnancy. (
  • There is a need for targeted screening and diagnosis for these high-risk populations, as well as interventions to prevent alcohol use among mothers of children with FASD in relation to subsequent pregnancies," says Dr. Popova. (
  • There are existing measures that could be adopted to help prevent alcohol consumption during pregnancy and thus, FASD, says Dr. Popova. (
  • 4 Mothers of children with FASD are often viewed as having wilful problematic patterns of alcohol use, and being neglectful and unfit parents. (
  • The erroneous belief that alcohol use disorder is a "disorder of will," and hence these mothers can and should make different choices, leads to an assumption that the FASD is entirely the mother's fault. (
  • Population and qualitative studies 2 , 5 , 6 have shown that many mothers of children with FASD do not have an alcohol use disorder. (
  • A qualitative study in New Zealand that involved biological mothers living with their children affected by FASD, showed that many were ignorant of the effects of alcohol exposure on their developing offspring and had no knowledge of the potential risk of FASD while pregnant. (
  • 2 Not surprisingly, in this study mothers at the highest risk of having children with FASD came from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, had lower education levels, had partners who used alcohol regularly, had inadequate nutrition during pregnancy, were undergoing stress or abuse during pregnancy and had reduced access to prenatal care. (
  • The revised FASD guideline appropriately identifies primary care physicians and front-line service providers as having a critical role in screening pregnant women for problematic alcohol and substance use. (
  • The UK has the fourth highest level of prenatal alcohol use in the world, yet rates of FASD are unknown. (
  • As part of the UK Alcohol Strategy, there needs to be coordinated, UK-wide, comprehensive action and training on FASD prevention, diagnosis and support that extends across the individual's lifespan. (
  • A positive FASD screen was defined as problems with at least three different areas of learning or behaviour, with or without growth deficiency and with or without the facial features of fetal alcohol syndrome (which are a smooth philtrum, thin upper lip and small eye openings). (
  • 5 , 6 Although heavier alcohol use is a strong risk factor for FASD, the ability to metabolize alcohol varies from person to person and can be affected by genetic factors. (
  • Tracy and Eric Moisan have three children with fetal alcohol syndrome and rely on help from the FASD Worker Program, which CHEO runs in partnership with Citizen Advocacy Ottawa. (
  • The FASD Worker Program provides supports to families with children and teenagers who have both been diagnosed with the disorder and those believed to have it (since a diagnosis can sometimes be difficult to obtain). (
  • FASD is an umbrella term for a range of physical, cognitive, and behavioral disorders caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. (
  • Depending on the features identified, the medical disorders labeled as FASD include: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), partial FAS (pFAS), alcohol-related neurodevelopmental disorder (ARND), alcohol-related birth defects (ARBD), and neurobehavioral disorder associated with prenatal alcohol exposure (ND-PAE). (
  • In FY2019, NIAAA allocated approximately 7 percent of its extramural research and training budget, or roughly $30 million, for its portfolio of FASD-related grants. (
  • A list of NIH funded FASD-related projects may be found here . (
  • The Collaborative Initiative on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (CIFASD) is a multidisciplinary consortium of domestic and international projects established by NIAAA in 2003 to address prevention of FASD, diagnosis of the full range of birth defects associated with prenatal alcohol exposure, and ameliorative interventions for affected individuals. (
  • NMARC is one of just twenty Alcohol Research Centers in the United States, and the only such center focused solely on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). (
  • Some of the children have diagnoses that are directly related to the FASD, such as the ADHD and depression mentioned above. (
  • Other children who have FASD may also have a serious mental illness such as Bipolar Disorder or Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). (
  • There does seem to be a higher rate of mental illness among FASD than in the gen- eral population, due to the fact that women with hereditary mental illness are at high risk of self-medicating with alcohol. (
  • Speaking to Health-e News, women share their first-hand experience about having babies with foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). (
  • The severity of FASD varies from child to child with the most severe form being Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). (
  • The brain and nerve abnormalities found in children with FASD often manifest as hyperactivity, irritability, attention deficit disorder, distractibility and taking longer than normal to complete tasks but FASD can be prevented," says Zanele Sibiya, a nurse at Rob Ferreira Hospital. (
  • In order for any pregnant women to prevent their unborn baby from getting FASD after finding out that they are pregnant, they should immediately stop drinking alcohol because it's dangerous to the foetus, she further explains. (
  • As a parent with a child affected with FASD, I plead with Department of Health to [create more] awareness in rural communities and townships regarding FASD because our kids are experiencing stigma and discrimination due to the lack information people have about the disorder," she says. (
  • Despite the growing awareness of FAS and FASD (FAS/FASD) and posted warnings on alcoholic beverages, consumption of alcohol during pregnancy continues, highlighting the need for an understanding of the molecular basis of FAS and developing novel treatments to mitigate the complications of gestational ethanol exposure. (
  • The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) developed an FASD Prevention Program external icon that provides physicians with resources and tools to communicate with patients about alcohol use during pregnancy. (
  • The FASD Prevention Program also includes tools and videos to help providers address alcohol use during pregnancy and provide alcohol-related resources specific to each ACOG district or section. (
  • For participants with FASD, a diagnosis of TBI/brain damage required an incident above and beyond the damage caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. (
  • Neurodevelopment in Adolescents and Adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD): a Magnetic Resonance Region of Interest Analysis. (
  • T1-weighted anatomical magnetic resonance images (MRI) were acquired from a cross-sectional sample of subjects 13-30 years old who had received an alcohol-related diagnosis (FASD, n=107) and typically developing controls (CON, n=56). (
  • The risk of FASD depends on the amount consumed and the frequency of consumption as well as at what point in pregnancy the alcohol was consumed. (
  • It is unclear as of 2017[update] if identifying a FASD-related condition benefits the individual. (
  • In 2013, the American Psychiatric Association introduced neurobehavioral disorder associated with prenatal alcohol exposure (ND-PAE) into the DSM-V as a "condition for further study" and as a specified condition under, "other specified neurodevelopmental disorders" as a way to better study the behavioral aspects of all FASD disorders. (
  • The key of FASD can vary between individuals exposed to alcohol during pregnancy. (
  • Alcoholism is defined as alcohol seeking and consumption behavior that is harmful. (
  • Behaviorally, alcohol consumption is related to internal or external feedback. (
  • Internal feedback is the internal state a person experiences during and after alcohol consumption. (
  • Advice about reducing and stopping drinking was outside the scope of this guidance, but if the patient does not require admission, will usually involve drinking and then slowly reducing consumption or undergoing a planned medically assisted withdrawal of alcohol. (
  • Further, to evaluate the impact of the program on alcohol-consumption levels. (
  • 4 A randomized controlled trial by Crawford et al 5 found reduced alcohol-consumption levels and ED visits in alcohol-misusing patients who were screened and referred to follow-up care with alcohol-abuse treatment specialists. (
  • Here we show that administration of alcohol and excessive voluntary consumption of alcohol induce the activation of the mTORC1-mediated signaling pathway in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) of rodents. (
  • We further show that the protein expression levels of GluR1 and Homer, two synaptic proteins whose translation has been shown to be modulated by mTORC1, are up-regulated in the NAc of rodents with a history of excessive alcohol consumption. (
  • Read on to find out more about the links between bipolar disorder and alcohol consumption. (
  • The researchers found a direct link between alcohol consumption and the rate of occurrence of manic or depressive episodes, even when study participants drank a relatively small amount of alcohol. (
  • Both bipolar disorder and alcohol consumption cause changes in a person's brain. (
  • report that, in humans, polymorphisms in Rsu1 are associated with brain activation in the ventral striatum during reward anticipation and with alcohol consumption ( 2 ). (
  • The team obtained detailed health and alcohol consumption histories and second and third trimester blood samples from each woman. (
  • On top of this, alcohol consumption raises the risk of vascular dementia due to its effect on the vascular system as a whole - for instance, it increases blood pressure . (
  • These include public health messages about the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy, and routine screening by health care professionals to detect alcohol consumption before or at early stages pregnancy. (
  • Alcohol consumption may lead to ataxia - an abnormal movement or gait. (
  • In many instances, mothers were unaware of the pregnancy at the time of alcohol consumption. (
  • If you've ever had a problem with alcohol consumption , you may have had these thoughts. (
  • Many people believe that alcohol consumption isn't something to worry about until you're older. (
  • Even if you don't have a substance use disorder, your alcohol consumption can clue you in to other problems that might be beneath the surface. (
  • Urine ethyl glucuronide (Etg): very sensitive and can detect alcohol in the urine 5-7 days after consumption. (
  • 1 Persons with FASDs have lifelong behavioral, intellectual, and physical disabilities that are solely the result of maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy. (
  • Acamprosate and naltrexone reduce alcohol consumption and increase abstinence rates, although the effects appear to be modest. (
  • Naltrexone (Revia) decreases alcohol consumption in patients with alcohol use disorder. (
  • When consumed in moderate amounts, the relaxing properties associated with alcohol consumption can boost people's emotions and enhance social bonding. (
  • While the majority of the world's population enjoy alcohol consumption without issue, specific individuals may develop a severe alcohol-related problem: alcohol use disorder (AUD). (
  • Second report / WHO Expert Committee on Problems Related to Alcohol Consumption. (
  • Mental and behavioural disorders as a consequence of excessive alcohol consumption accounted for more than half of alcohol-related mortality in 2002. (
  • Liver diseases caused by excessive alcohol consumption are the second most important cause of death of all alcohol-related deaths. (
  • The share of mental disorders slightly rose from 56 percent in 1996 to 59 percent in 2002, whereas the share of liver diseases caused by alcohol consumption decreased by 37 percent in 1996 to 34 percent in 2002. (
  • Alcohol use disorder is defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders , 5th edition (DSM-5) ( 4 ) as a pattern of alcohol consumption, leading to problems associated with 2 or more of 11 potential symptoms of alcohol use disorder (see Table 1 for criteria). (
  • Finally, the rates of tobacco use, daily tobacco use, and nicotine dependence increased with increasing levels of alcohol consumption and the presence of an AUD. (
  • In humans, alcohol consumption during pregnancy can result in fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), which consists of a persistent growth deficiency, craniofacial dysmorphology and deficient brain growth with associated neurocognitive deficits ( Jones and Smith, 1973 ). (
  • The results found a 77% negative association between alcohol consumption on one or more stages of the treatment cascade. (
  • The strong negative correlations suggest that problematic alcohol consumption should be targeted, preferably using evidence-based behavioral and pharmacological interventions, to indirectly increase the proportion of PLH achieving viral suppression, to achieve treatment as prevention mandates, and to reduce HIV transmission. (
  • It is, thus, crucial to holistically establish broad-based interventions that target problematic alcohol consumption so that they may exert their influence across the entire spectrum of the HIV care continuum. (
  • Moreover, findings here point to the need for standardization of measures, not only for each step of the treatment cascade but also for measures of alcohol consumption, with an eye towards AUDs that are amenable to treatment. (
  • Although there was little evidence of any overtly irresponsible alcohol promotion techniques being used (in the observed nightclubs at weekends), drunkenness was the norm, with consumption patterns varying according to clientele. (
  • These three reasons, concerning why people went clubbing (music, 'pulling' or 'fun'), could be reflected in both patterns of alcohol consumption and disorder risk, for example violent conflicts arising from disputes over 'sexual jealousy' at 'pulling' venues. (
  • The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) is a ten-item questionnaire approved by the World Health Organization to screen patients for hazardous (risky) and harmful alcohol consumption. (
  • Based on responses in the original WHO multi-centre study a score of 8 or more is the threshold for identifying hazardous or harmful alcohol consumption with a score of 15 or more indicating likely alcohol dependence, and 20 or more indicating likely severe dependence and harm. (
  • Using the cut-off point of 8, its performance in the original collaborative WHO study indicated a sensitivity of 92% and a specificity of 94% for the diagnoses of hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption. (
  • Multiple studies have found that the AUDIT is a reliable and valid measure in identifying alcohol abuse, hazardous consumption and harmful alcohol use (consumption leading to actual harm) and it has also been found to be a valid indicator for severity of alcohol dependence. (
  • WHO Collaborative Project on Identification and Treatment of Persons with Harmful Alcohol Consumption. (
  • Alcoholism is the popular term for the disorder recognized by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) as alcohol dependence. (
  • Alcohol dependence is a complex disorder that includes the social and interpersonal issues mentioned above, and also includes biological elements, as well. (
  • Alcohol abuse is similar to dependence in that the use of alcohol is impairing the affected person's ability to achieve goals and fulfill responsibilities, and his or her interpersonal relationships are affected by the alcohol abuse. (
  • However, unlike a person with dependence, a person diagnosed with alcohol abuse does not experience tolerance or, when not drinking, withdrawal symptoms. (
  • Others, such as people with antisocial personality disorder, may use alcohol as part of a dual diagnosis of criminality and substance dependence. (
  • People may drink to the point of dependence because of peer pressure, acceptance in a peer group , or because drinking is related to specific moods (easygoing, relaxed, calm, sociable) that are related to the formation of intimate relationships. (
  • Cannabis use disorders (CUD) are highly comorbid with social anxiety disorder (SAD), and SAD may be a risk factor for cannabis dependence. (
  • First, we examined whether SAD was more likely to be related to cannabis dependence than abuse. (
  • Although SAD is related to CUD, it has a stronger association with cannabis dependence than abuse. (
  • Planned withdrawal as part of a treatment programme for alcohol dependence is dealt with in Alcohol-use disorders: diagnosis, assessment and management of harmful drinking and alcohol dependence . (
  • Nevertheless, opinion based on experience within the expert group was that unplanned withdrawal in isolation is rarely an effective long-term treatment for alcohol dependence. (
  • Almost three quarters (73.2%) of pathological gamblers had an alcohol use disorder, 38.1% had a drug use disorder, 60.4% had nicotine dependence, 49.6% had a mood disorder, 41.3% had an anxiety disorder, and 60.8% had a personality disorder. (
  • In the past, researchers have noted that symptoms of bipolar disorder appear as a person withdraws from alcohol dependence. (
  • Severe AUD is sometimes called alcoholism or alcohol dependence. (

  • Similar patterns existed for the presence of alcohol use disorders (AUDs), nicotine dependence, and comorbidity between AUDs and nicotine dependence. (
  • The cue-reactivity paradigm is well suited to examine one marker of dependence: craving-related stimulus control, i.e., the ability of environmental. (
  • The dual disorders recovery counseling model, which incorporates individual counseling and psychosocial interventions, attempts to address the area of ​​focus of treatment and therefore depends on the patient's dependence and psychological problems. (
  • Using different cut-off points, it can also screen for Alcohol Use Disorder (DSM-5) and Alcohol Dependence. (
  • Possible dependence on alcohol (Questions 4 to 6), and Harmful alcohol use, including concern expressed by others (Questions 7 to 10). (
  • In clinical populations (focusing on either disorder), about 25-50% have a lifetime dual diagnosis of PTSD and SUD. (
  • Given that the dual diagnosis of PTSD and SUD is frequent and causes significant social disabilities, special measures to prevent and treat these disorders need to be taken. (
  • While early and accurate diagnosis provides the best prognosis for those affected, there is a lack of tools for differential diagnosis between these two disorders. (
  • The health care provider will make a diagnosis by looking at the child's signs and symptoms and asking whether the mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. (
  • Early diagnosis is important because it permits early intervention to minimize the harm due to prenatal alcohol exposure," said Wladimir Wertelecki, MD, research team leader in Ukraine. (
  • Across the same time period, there were almost 1 million people diagnosed with alcohol use disorders, most of whom had an alcohol dependency diagnosis, too. (

  • The information should not be used for either diagnosis or treatment or both for any health related problem or disease. (
  • Dual diagnosis ( Addiction Resource provide more details) is simply the term used when a person has both a mood disorder - such as depression or bipolar disorder - and a problem with alcohol or drugs. (
  • Implementation of this knowledge in clinical practice and training of health care providers is also needed to ensure appropriate diagnosis and treatment of individuals suffering from alcohol use disorder. (
  • In this report, structural equation modeling in OpenMx was applied to (1) the three types of alcohol registration in a population-based sample of male-male twins and reared-together full and half siblings (total 208,810 pairs), and (2) AUD, as a single diagnosis, in male-male, female-female, and opposite-sex (OS) twins and reared-together full and half siblings (total 787,916 pairs).

  • SUMMARY BACKGROUND: Depression and anxiety disorders (DAD) are the most prevalent mental health conditions worldwide. (
  • Epidemiological studies have shown a strong relationship between alcohol use disorders (AUDs) and depression. (
  • Indeed, the prevalence of current or lifetime alcohol problems in depression is estimated around 16% and 30%, respectively [ 2 ]. (
  • Depression (major depressive disorder) is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. (
  • Statistics show that nearly one-fifth of people suffering from depression also exhibit signs of alcohol abuse. (
  • Also, alcohol, as a depressant, can actually increase suicidal thoughts in individuals and cause depression . (
  • Bipolar disorder is a mental condition marked by alternating periods of mania (elevated mood) and depression. (
  • furthermore we discuss post-traumatic stress disorder and, in part depression. (
  • The symptoms that a person who is suffering with SAD experiences can vary and be difficult to distinguish from other health issues, such as depression and obsessive compulsive disorder. (

(
  • A person with bipolar disorder experiences mood swings and other symptoms. (
  • Alcohol misuse and bipolar disorder can also produce overlapping symptoms, and they may trigger each other in some circumstances. (
  • This may cause alcohol misuse and bipolar disorder each to trigger symptoms of the other condition. (
  • As a result, a person with bipolar disorder may not get the correct treatment that can relieve their symptoms. (
  • What Are Symptoms of Alcohol Use Disorder? (
  • Anger or rage are not typical symptoms of bipolar disorder. (
  • A pre-existing mental issue is more likely to lead to alcohol abuse for many people because the mood-enhancing effects of the drink can help mask the symptoms and emotional reactions of a mood disorder. (
  • The constant cycling between extreme spectrums of mood can be quite disturbing, and people with undiagnosed bipolar disorder may attempt to self-medicate the symptoms. (

  • Harmful drinking leads to 2.5 million deaths annually and alcohol is the third leading risk factor globally for burden of illness. (
  • Although it still plays an important role during prenatal care, education about the teratogenic risk associated with alcohol use needs to start much earlier. (
  • Family history of an alcohol problem presents a significant risk despite the fact that the risk is lower for women than men [ 8 ]. (
  • Improved services for families are required to offer peer support, reduce the risk of future alcohol-exposed pregnancies and help them understand how best to support their child. (

  • these women are at risk of alcohol-exposed pregnancies. (
  • Alcohol use and sexual risk behaviour : a cross-cultural study in eight countries. (
  • EBIs that target alcohol use, as well as those targeting the individual stages of the continuum, are needed and should be adequately scaled for high-risk individuals and PLH globally, as part of a concerted effort to reduce both primary and secondary HIV transmission, to improve both individual and public health mandates, and to help eliminate HIV for future generations. (
  • The relationship between the genetic and environmental risk factors for alcohol use disorders (AUD) detected in Swedish medical, pharmacy, and criminal registries has not been hitherto examined. (
  • If you have a parent with alcohol use disorder, you are more at risk for alcohol problems. (
  • Further longitudinal research examining excess alcohol use as a coping mechanism or as a way to gain or lose weight, as well as underlying risk factors in childhood, may shed more light on this relationship. (
  • It also focuses on the identification and management of relapsing warning signs and high risk of relapses identified by one or more dual disorders. (
  • The observational research found that there was great variance in disorder risk between premises. (
  • These differences in disorder risk appeared to be related to differing clientele and patrons' behaviours, which were in turn related to the entertainments on offer (i.e. because of music policy rather than any drinks marketing). (
  • This phase usually includes the first 3 months following the adjustment with dual disorders. (
  • Moreover, CBD reduces alcohol-related steatosis and fibrosis in the liver by reducing lipid accumulation, stimulating autophagy, modulating inflammation, reducing oxidative stress, and by inducing death of activated hepatic stellate cells. (
  • ARLD is a progressive alcohol-induced liver injury, which starts with an increase in the amount of fat in the liver-a process called steatosis-and continues into a progressive cell loss, fibrosis, and hepatic insufficiency-a process called cirrhosis (O'Shea et al. (
  • Overall, alcohol-attributable liver damage is responsible for 493,300 deaths every year, and 14,544,000 disability adjusted life years (DALYs), representing 0.9% of all global deaths and 0.6% of all global DALYs all over the world (Rehm et al. (
  • Many people are familiar with the fact that alcohol causes damage to the liver . (
  • And, while the liver certainly takes a big hit from alcohol abuse, various other organs are also negatively impacted. (
  • Liver diseases related to alcohol use and abuse can be caused by a number of factors. (
