Happy New Year to all!
I have read that other b12 deficient folks have issues with alcohol so i thought i might post requesting info.
I have never been able to drink large amounts of alcohol but at this point it seems my over reaction to alcohol is ridiculous.
About 6 weeks ago i had 3 cranberry vodka drinks over the course of 4 hours. I felt tipsy and stopped drinking for the evening and went home. Appox 90 minutes, after i had stopped drinking i started throwing up. I had a similar over reaction back in July, the last time i had had 3 drinks. Again, it had been over several hours and i had eaten prior to both experiences because i know i "feel drunk" with just a single drink without eating.
Yesterday i had 2 drinks from 5 to 9pm, so 4 hours. I had eaten a slice of pizza, and 3/4 of a hamburger and tater tots at the bar prior to having 1/4 of my first drink. I felt drunk on my drive home! It is so frustrating.
I dont drink often but i would like to be a social drinker again someday so i was researching this weird side effect yesterday and found these articles.
2 are Quite technical, i know, but im wondering about aldehyde dehydrogenase.
Is a production of aldehyde dehydrogenase after drinking alcohol, without the correct "stuff/nutrients/glutathione" what makes me vomit and/or feel so hung over. Is there any way to correct this over reaction to alcohol /under detoxification?
I already take a very good multivitamin with all the b vitamins.
I would just like to have a understanding of what is going on inside my body.
Does anyone have a less technical, better comprehensible link?
