Mechanism of Alcohol Induced Liver Injury
Alcohol will lead to liver fat accumulation, which is mainly caused by the inhibition of mitochondrial function during the conversion of ethanol to acetic acid, resulting in disordered lipid metabolism, delaying the output of triglyceride and accumulation in hepatocytes.
The toxicity of alcohol metabolism causes the death of liver cells, which in turn causes hepatitis.
Subsequent Effects of Alcohol Metabolism/p>
The liver also produces large amounts of free radicals during alcohol metabolism. Free radical related diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Cancer, Cardiovascular diseases, Diabetes, Liver diseases, Parkinson's disease...etc.
