How to Understand Alcohol Allergy and Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Deficiency?

In life, many people do not know what is the case of alcohol allergy and aldehyde dehydrogenase deficiency. Some people think that the two are actually one thing, but in fact, the two is not the same thing. Today let’s talk about it and explain what they are.

Firstly, drinking-blush is caused by the lack of aldehyde dehydrogenase and alcohol dehydrogenase in the body. From the analysis on the principle of enzyme engineering, the enzyme genes to metabolize alcohol have defects, and kinase can not play an effective role, which lead to a large number of toxic acetaldehyde accumulation in the body, causing blood vessels to dilate and flushing reaction. Many people think that this is alcohol allergy, but in fact, it is the result of the accumulation of alcohol in the body, and it not related to allergies.

Drinking-blush is not a bad thing. It suggests that you have a genetic defect. Many people judge if they should continue to drink on the basis of their own drunk state, and even some people think that after a period of time to exercise, everything will be fine. In fact, drinkers will have good tolerance to alcohol after exercise that they can drink more wine, resulting in more acetaldehyde accumulation in body, and causing greater harm. So, people who have drinking-blush should drink less or not drink.

Secondly, symptoms of alcohol allergy are back itch or small red peas, also accompanied by fever, or erythema in a whole body. The reason is that these people are allergic to alcohol. Alcohol is the allergen. Contacting allergens can cause allergies.

Other common clinical manifestations of alcohol allergy are skin symptoms, respiratory symptoms and gastrointestinal symptoms. Such as skin itch, eczema, urticaria, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and allergic shock even on a small number of people. The latest research shows, when the body allergic reaction occurs, it will involve the heart, leading to blood vessel expansion, tachycardia, decreased blood pressure, heart burden increase, and the prominent symptom is arrhythmia.

From the above analysis we can know, whether it is alcohol allergy or aldehyde dehydrogenase deficiency, all of them have greater harm to the body. So try not to drink or drink less as well.
