AbstractContext: Alcohol consumption has been steadily increasing all over world, especially in India. Alcohol can cause physical, mental and social effects which is determined by quantity and pattern of alcohol drinking.
Aim: Present study was conducted to observe alterations in the biochemical and haematological parameters in heavy alcohol consumers.
Subjects and Method: 40 young males of 20-40 years age with history of daily alcohol consumption for past one to five years duration were included in study .Estimation of the biochemical and haematological parameters were carried out in study and control subjects.
Statistical Analysis: Analysis of the haematological and biochemical parameters data of the study subjects and controls was done by using student t test
Results: Lipid profile parameters were not altered in study subjects .Liver enzymes AST and ALT were significantly elevated in alcoholic subjects. Hemoglobin and platelets was lower in alcoholic subjects. Mean corpuscular volume was significantly higher in alcoholics.
Conclusion: These alterations of liver enzymes and haematological parameters in alcoholics can be used as early indicator of alcohol abuse and person can be motivated to stop alcohol consumption.
