Alcohol Metabolism

When alcohol is consumed, alcohol is absorbed into blood from stomach and intestines.

Your Result

Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Alcohol Metabolism is

Normal

What does it mean?

Likely to have typical alcohol metabolism. Your genotype results indicate that you have tendency to have typical alcohol metabolism.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations

1

Always practise safe caution during consumption and stop if you have symptoms like sturring of speech, drownsiness, lowering of body temperature, vomit and headache.

2

For men, you can practice moderate alcohol drinking which is not more than 2 drinks per day if you wish. For women, you can practice moderate alcohol drinking which is not more than 1 drink per day if you wish.

3

Do practice safety caution when you are drinking, do not drive or take medication.

What Is Alcohol Metabolism
and How Can It Affect You

What is Alcohol Metabolism

When alcohol is consumed, alcohol is absorbed into blood from stomach and intestines. Alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) are the enzymes that helps in the the conversion of alcohol to acetaldehyde, as well as the breakdown of alcohol molecule, so that it can be eliminated from the body. More than 90% of body alcohol is oxidized to acetic acid, while the remaining one is excreted in the sweat, urine or given off through breath.

Symptoms Of Excessive Alcohol Consumption

Physical signs of alcohol overconsumption include:

How Does It Affect You?

Excessive alcohol consumption could bring detrimental consequences to your body, including oxygen deficits in the liver, formation of harmful compounds such as highly reactive oxygen-containing molecules that can damage other cell components and so on.
