AbstractThe study was conducted in Mosul city to show the effects of alcoholism on antioxidants and some biochemical parameters which include: Vitamin E, Vitamin A, β-carotene, Vitamin C, Folic acid, Ceruloplasmin (Cp), Total protein, Albumin, Calcium, Total bilirubin, Direct bilirubin, Uric acid, Creatinine, Total iron binding capacity (TIBC), Iron, Glutathione(GSH), Malondialdehyde (MDA), Cholesterol, Glucose, Selenium and Transferrin saturation (%). The study included (103) persons represented in two groups, the first group as a control included outside city center living, the second group represented for alcoholism was divided into two sub groups, smokers and non smokers.
The results showed a significant decreased in: calcium, transferrin saturation (%), but non decreased significant in: vitamin A, total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, creatinine, iron, MDA and glucose. While a significant increased in TIBC and selenium, but non significant increased in: vitamin E, β-carotene, vitamin C, folic acid, Cp., total protein, albumin, uric acid, GSH and cholesterol.
The results also showed a significant decrease of alcoholism smokers in: vitamin A (P=0.004), vitamin C, transferrin saturation (%) and folic acid, and non significant in: total iron binding capacity, iron, vitamin E, β-carotene, total protein, albumin and creatinine. While non significant increase in: Cp., calcium, total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, uric acid, malondialdehyde, glutathion, cholesterol, glucose and selenium was detected.
