Nutritional status in alcoholics with and without liver disease: are serum albumin, transferrin, prealbumin liver function tests or nutritional parameters useful?



Nutritional status in alcoholics with and without liver disease: are serum albumin, transferrin, prealbumin liver function tests or nutritional parameters useful?



European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology 3(2): 143-148



Nutritional status parameters were compared in 425 alcoholic patients in relation to the stages of alcoholic liver disease. The results suggest that in alcoholic patients with minor liver disease, and with cirrhosis, serum transferrin may reflect nutritional status. Percentage of ideal body weight was higher in patients with steatosis and cirrhosis without ascites than in patients with normal liver biopsy.
