Alcohol effect panel 71 €
The panel includes 5 blood tests that provide objective information on the damage to organs caused by alcohol and, if necessary, help motivate people to completely give up alcohol. Excessive alcohol consumption is directly related to more than 60 different health problems, including cirrhosis and hepatitis, pancreatitis, and cardiovascular and neurological diseases. Alcohol-related health problems arise cumulatively. Many symptoms attributable to alcohol consumption are non-specific and it is often difficult for people to realize that the deterioration in their well-being may be caused by the effects of alcohol.
This panel cannot be used to identify reasonable amounts of alcohol. If all test results are within the normal range, a person should not be encouraged to increase alcohol consumption or return to the same drinking habits. When drinking alcohol, it should always be remembered that less is better. However, abnormal test results could serve as a warning sign, as damage to organs may have already occurred due to excessive alcohol consumption.
The panel includes 5 blood tests:
- Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT)
- Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT)
- Alanine aminotransferase (ALAT)
- Aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT)
- Complete blood count with mean corpuscular volume (MCV)
