Abstract

ALCOHOLISM ASSOCIATED GASTRITIS: AN OVERVIEW

Dr. K. P. Saravana Prakash*, P. Jeyaprabha, Haseena Varikkoden and Dr. V. Ganesan

ABSTRACT

Alcohol is a psychoactive substance and is widely used in many cultures for centuries, its harmful uses may leads to large diseases, social and economic crisis in societies. Alcoholism is generally characterized as a family disease in the sense that it affects everyone in the family in all aspects—socio-economically, spiritually, physically, psychologically, and emotionally. Families and homes of alcoholics suffer much from the degradation and stigmatization attached to the individual alcoholic. To some extent, this may reflect the negative perception held by society about alcoholism. The relational and communal nature of our cultural thinking and practice also emphasizes, as in Family systems theory, the fact that whatever affects the individual member of the family affects the whole family and also the community. Alcoholics required to be integrated into the mainstream society by providing suitable rehabilitation. In the due course of rehabilitation, alcoholics suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms and gastritis. Alcohol is a cause of chronic gastritis and the duration of excessive drinking is proportional to the severity of the mucosal lesion. The effect of alcohol on the gastric mucosa is not mediated by malnutrition, hepatic damage, intestinal malabsorption, anaemia, ascorbic acid deficiency, or any disturbance in immune tolerance but direct one. Alcohol consumption leads to negative consequence for the drinker, to his immediate environment and the society. Social problems such as traffic accidents, workplace related issues, domestic violence and interpersonal misdemeanour have been the goals of research attention in the current era.
