MODE OF ACTION:
Alcoholics are at risk for vitamin B deficiencies because of malabsorption and a poor diet. Thiamine is one of many vitamin B deficiencies that alcoholics often experience because high intake of alcohol prevents thiamine from being broken down and properly utilized.
Vitamin B6 or pyridoxine deficiency has been associated with alcohol ingestion. Low circulating plasma vitamin B6 levels have been reported in 60% of a patient population with alcoholic cirrhosis, although only a small proportion had clinical symptoms of deficiency. Plasma levels of pyridoxal-
5′-phosphate (PLP), the biologically active form of vitamin B6, have been shown to be a reliable index of vitamin B6 nutrition and to correlate with the PLP content of erythrocytes and with such functional indices of vitamin B6 status as the tryptophan loading test and PLP saturability of red blood cell transaminases.
Magnesium is an important co-factor in many thiamine dependent enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism, and patients may fail to respond to parenteral thiamine in the presence of hypomagnesemia.
Folate deficiency is frequent among alcoholics, and low serum folate and red blood cell folate levels can be found in up to 60% of heavy drinkers. Folic acid helps the body produce new cells.
Zinc deficiency may alter hepatocyte functions and also immune responses in inflammatory liver diseases. It may impair the activity of enzymes of the urea cycle as well as glutamine synthetase and decreased activity of these enzymes has the potential to lead to further increases in circulating and brain ammonia with the potential to cause worsening of HE.
