Teen who has been binge drinking since age 14?

July 15th, 2010 by admin

Teen is 18 now. What tests could be done to check the damage done from teen binge drinking? What/where would the damage likely to be?  PS: I am not talking about myself (I know this is a stupid thing to do). I know how some people get on this judging you lol.

 


You can do a liver profile to check the liver enzymes to make sure it’s functioning correctly. An echocardiogram can detect any damage done to the heart (such as alcoholic cardiomyopathy). Kidney function tests can be used to check for kidney failure. Lipid profiles would be in order as well…excessive drinking can throw of the triglycerides. Psychiatric tests could be used to check cognitive function. Hope this helps….

    The damage would most likely be in the liver. I don’t know what tests they could do. But does the person look like crap? unhealthy, pale, run down? Also a yellowish tinting of the skin indicates jaundice (yellowing of the whites in eyes also)…
    Liver failure is a likely damage of an alcoholic. Resulting in death.

    That’s scary, I have an 11 year old son. It’s very scary for parents to think of what would their offspring become, and I hope that my son will not be a binge drinker at 14 or any age for that matter. Alcoholism is a serious problem which would ruin everything.

    I started drinking at age 15. I wish I hadn’t to be honest with you. I have gone through tough times but that doesn’t excuse my alcohol problems. To teens out there, don’t follow my lead. Just listen to your folks.
