  • Possible increase ketoacid (decrease Kreb’s cycle) leads to ketoacidosis, body ache, headache, nausea, short of breath.
  • Inhibition of most oxidations that use liver NAD result in inhibition of some drug and hormone metabolism which make some medicine can stay in body longer.
  • Decreased fatty acid oxidation and increased fatty acid synthesis promote fatty liver, elevated blood lipids.
  • Liver account for majority of alcohol detoxification and excretion in our body (90%) while the remaining 10% is through other channel (urine, sweat, breath). During alcohol detoxification process, alcohol is converted into aldehyde which is highly toxic and create “hangover” symptoms (headache, nausea, flushing, lightheadedness, palpitation) when accumulated in our body.
