Association of alcohol consumption and renal dysfunction apparently healthy individual
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.
