Nutritional problems in chronic alcoholics

Nutritional problems in chronic alcoholics

Cahiers de Nutrition et de Dietetique 35(2): 93-98

The definition of chronic alcoholism is based on excessive consumption of alcohol leading to the risk of complications with or without physical dependence. Nutritional abnormalities may be observed in this condition before the onset of clinical complications. Long-term consumption of alcohol stimulates the microsomal ethanol-oxidizing system and increases energy expenditure. Alcohol has profound effects on the metabolism of other nutrients, especially lipid substrates.
