Love the person that drink, can the liver after abstinence still amelient?With these four symptoms, it’s time to stop drinking
For people who are good wine, we must know more or less.Some people who drink good wine, the first thing every day after leisure, is to take out the glass, pour a little wine, sip a few, and then hum a happy song, as if the most delicious time of the day is right now.Mr. Wang, 38 years old, is one of the many good wine people, he appeared in the clinic, with a big “general belly”, because a month ago began to feel abdominal distension, a little food will feel full, appetite is not good, compared with the past feeling tired, this came to the hospital.After a detailed understanding, I learned that the patient had a drinking history of more than 10 years, when young, but the amount of alcohol is very small, in the last six months, because of work, drinking a lot of alcohol, about 3~4 times a week, about 1 kg of liquor and 2~3 kg of beer each time.After a detailed liver function test on the patient, the results showed that glutamic-pyruvate transaminase and glutamic-oxalacetic transaminase were both elevated and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was reduced. Combined with the patient’s symptoms, signs and ultrasound examination, the patient was diagnosed as alcoholic fatty liver and should immediately abstain from alcohol and receive treatment.But the patient asked two questions, typically and impressively. The first was “Is it true that people who drink for a long time will have adverse physical reactions when they suddenly stop drinking?”The second question was, “Will my liver return to normal after I stop drinking?”.The above question may also be everyone, including many good wine people, want to know?So let’s talk about it.One, the person that drinks for a long time suddenly abstinence, can the body appear adverse reaction?Many people may think that drinking is a bad habit that damages physical health and liver health, so they will advise people who drink for a long time to stop drinking immediately and do not touch alcohol as soon as possible.But in fact, this is a common cognitive misunderstanding.If long-term drinkers suddenly stop drinking, under normal circumstances, the body will experience some adverse reactions and symptoms, namely alcohol withdrawal syndrome.So what is alcohol withdrawal syndrome?In fact, alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a neurological syndrome caused by sudden withdrawal of alcohol after long-term drinking. Clinically, its symptoms are divided into three levels.The first stage is mainly characterized by restlessness, sweating, rapid heartbeat, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms after abstinence from drinking for 6-12 hours. Some patients may also experience tremor, emotional irritability and irritability.The second level of performance is more serious, belongs to the acute stage, appears in 24~72 hours after alcohol withdrawal, abusers will appear obvious fever tremor, sweating volume increase, the brain will even produce temporary hallucinations, auditory hallucinations, mainly vision, mostly for abuse and persecution.Some abstainers also develop epileptic seizures, also known as withdrawal tics.The third level is more serious, in addition to level with the first two symptoms, the evening will have insomnia, anxiety, but also can appear disturbance of consciousness, such as attention deficit, disorientation, and severe delirium tremens, this is a kind of acute brain syndrome, usually last for a long time, if not treated, could be life-threatening.So why do chronic alcoholics suffer the adverse effects of alcohol withdrawal syndrome when they go cold feet?For most people, severe withdrawal will not occur.Since most people don’t have severe alcohol dependence, don’t panic.The reason why some people have alcohol stage syndrome is that alcohol acts as a depressant of the nervous system, inhibiting the activity of the cerebral cortex, giving people a sense of relaxation and allowing people to release their emotions.In people who drink for a long time, the brain has adapted to this suppression, and if they suddenly stop drinking, the brain can “lose control” and then send out all kinds of wrong instructions, leading to physical and mental disorders in the abstinent.The severity of alcohol withdrawal syndrome is related to individual drinking mode, drinking type, age, physical condition and neurogenetic factors.In the event of severe alcohol withdrawal, professional medical intervention, such as sedation, is required.Visible, if people who drink for a long time suddenly cut off alcohol, the body will indeed have adverse reactions.So having answered and explained the first question, let’s answer the second one: “Can the liver return to normal after drinking?”Two, that after abstinence, liver still can change good?In fact, whether the liver can return to normal after abstinence depends largely on how much alcohol damages the liver.If the liver damage caused by alcohol intake is mild, such as mild to moderate fatty liver, taking good care of the liver after abstinence can restore it to its original state, because the liver is a powerful compensatory organ that can repair and regenerate itself.Although severe fatty liver can recover, but it takes a long time.If alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, or even liver cancer develops as a result of long-term drinking, the liver will not be able to change back to its original shape. This damage is irreversible and can only be improved by medical treatment, but it is very difficult to recover.So for mild liver damage, after drinking, how does the liver recover step by step?Normally, within three days of abstinence, the liver begins to repair damaged liver cells and regenerate them.After one month of abstaining from alcohol, the blood pressure in the body will decrease, and the blood pressure level has been relatively stable, and the liver is gradually recovering.After 3 months, blood lipid will also appear significant improvement, drinking out of alcoholic fatty liver will also improve, liver metabolism is gradually restored and enhanced at this time.Then after nine months of abstinence, the liver has basically improved, and the liver function is basically normal, as before.It can be seen that the liver damage and liver disease caused by “drinking” can get better and recover as before if the liver damage is not serious, but if the liver lesion is serious, it will not be reversible. Therefore, for people who love drinking, the occurrence of such symptoms indicates that it is time to prepare for alcohol withdrawal.Three, long-term drinking, the body appears these 4 symptoms, remind to quit drinking in order to avoid alcohol to the liver to bring greater damage to prevent serious liver lesions, if the body has the following 4 symptoms, really recommended to stop drinking as well!1, liver pain liver is a silent organ, no pain nerve, if there is pain in the liver area, it is highly likely that the liver inflammation or other lesions, the liver volume becomes larger, pull to the liver outermost layer of the liver capsule, trigger pain nerve, resulting in liver pain.2, his face blackened or sallow healthy complexion is ruddy, gloss and full, for long-term drinking, if appear black or yellow face, is likely to be the so-called “liver disease face”, means that the liver damage, makes the elevated bilirubin concentration in the blood, causing your face, eyes, yellow, and even the whole body skin yellowing symptoms.And liver damage can make the toxins in the body can not be excreted normally, accumulation in the body, and then make the facial skin appear to a certain degree of blackening.3, drunk diarrhea, drunk diarrhea, on the one hand, related to the metabolism of the liver, if the liver is damaged, the metabolic capacity will be reduced, alcohol can not be metabolized normally, resulting in drunk diarrhea;On the other hand, long-term intake of alcohol will stimulate the stomach and digestive tract. In the long run, abnormal gastrointestinal function will lead to the occurrence of diarrhea after drinking.4. If the amount of alcohol is reduced in recent time, it is obvious that the amount of alcohol is decreased, and only one-third of the amount of alcohol drunk before, it has felt dizzy and dizzy, and the phenomenon of drunkenness should be paid attention to.The condition is most likely due to reduced metabolism in the liver, as alcohol is no longer broken down by the liver as quickly as it used to, which is a sign of liver damage.Although drinking alcohol can be relaxing and emotional, it doesn’t mean you can drink heavily in the long term.Drinking too much alcohol will not only lead to liver damage, resulting in liver lesions, but also harm people’s intestines and stomach, causing damage to the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular system and nervous system.Therefore, abstinence from alcohol is necessary.4. It may be more useful to give up alcohol in this way. However, giving up alcohol is a complicated process, not something that can be accomplished overnight, especially for those who have alcohol withdrawal syndrome.It is a long process for ordinary people to give up drinking and drinking, which requires the abstinence to have firm will and determination. It is necessary to make clear the harm of long-term drinking to the body and even to the family. For example, people who drink for a long time are easy to change their temperament, have unstable mood, and have a grumpy personality, which affects family harmony and so on.In addition, as far as possible away from alcohol environment, you can go out for a walk, or leisure time to cultivate other hobbies, shift attention.If it is difficult to stop drinking completely at once, you can gradually cut back on the number and amount of alcohol you drink.And the family should encourage more support, and strict control.People with alcohol withdrawal syndrome abstain from alcohol For these people, it is necessary to use a professional health care provider to gradually abstain from alcohol so that severe withdrawal symptoms do not occur.Quantification of alcohol consumption is made into data statements to record it, so as to facilitate comprehensive understanding of alcohol withdrawal and progress, and purposeful intervention, such as nutritional intervention, sports intervention, psychological intervention, etc.Warm reminder in life, drinking is only harmful to the body, there is no benefit, so, must control the amount of alcohol.In general, adult men should have no more than 25g of alcohol a day and women no more than 20g.However, it is recommended not to drink alcohol, do not touch alcohol.
