[Gastroesophageal reflux disease in hazardous drinkers].
Pol Merkur Lekarski. 2006 Jul; 21(121):99-104.PM

Abstract

Excess alcohol consumption has been associated with multiple pathologies of the gastrointestinal tract. The consumption of large amounts of alcohol (hazardous drinking) facilitates acid regurgitation by reducing the pressure of the lower oesophageal sphincter and slowing both oesophageal motility and gastric emptying. Regardless of the type of alcoholic beverage involved lower alcohol doses also have been shown to induce decreased pressure in lower oesophageal, decrease in oesophageal motility and enhanced risk of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD can be important risk factor for oesophageal adenocarcinoma. For identification of hazardous drinking patients we can use AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test). AUDIT has been created by World Health Organization experts as a simple screening test looking for hazardous drinking people.
