Abstract
Background: Alcohol consumption has been associated with negative health effects. Association between alcohol consumption and renal dysfunction is still not clear.
Methods: We conducted a prospective study of 200 individual with 10 years of history alcohol consumption at MGM Medical College and Hospital, Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, India. We categorized alcohol consumption into mild, moderate and severe/chronic drinker. Result measures in elevated creatinine levels >1.5 mg/dl and reduced estimated glomerular filtration rates <55 mL/ min). Results: 20 person (10%) had elevated creatinine levels and 30 (15%) having decreased glomerular filtration rates. Compared with men who consumed mild and moderate, men who consumed severe/chronic alcohol had association with decreased glomerular filtration rates.
Conclusions: Alcohol consumption was not associated with an increased risk of renal dysfunction. Many studies are still incomplete and association between alcohol consumption and renal dysfunction is still not clear.
