Such an indicator of blood as GGTP (gamma glutamate transpeptidase, gamma glutamate transferase) increases. It is an enzyme found in liver cells. When alcohol enters the body and reaches the liver, its cells die. The content of cells enters the bloodstream, increasing the level of GGTP. If your result is higher than the normal range, it means that you are damaging your liver. If there is no other known liver disease, alcohol is most likely the cause. Remove alcohol and the liver will heal. GGTP levels can return to normal within a few weeks after reducing alcohol consumption.
ALT. It is another enzyme found in liver cells. High levels indicate liver damage from alcohol consumption.
Bilirubin rises. Bilirubin is a waste product that is usually removed from the blood by the liver. Alcohol makes the liver "swell". This blocks the removal of bilirubin, and its levels rise in the blood.
Complete blood count. It has such an indicator - MCV - the average volume of a red blood cell, which is called an erythrocyte. blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen in your blood to all parts of your body. Alcohol poisoning leads to bone marrow poisoning, where red blood cells are produced. As a result, red blood cells are not produced properly and become abnormally large and the result of MCV is higher than it should be. Stopping alcohol allows the bone marrow to recover and MCV usually returns to normal within two months.
An increase in the level of ethyl alcohol in the blood, if there are problems with the liver, then an increase in liver enzymes. The rest is specialized.
