Hypothyroid and alcohol metabolism
angelsls2 posted:
I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroid. I was wondering if anyone knows if hypothyroid affects alcohol metabolism. I rarely drink; and, the last time I had drinks, I only had 3 drinks over a 5 hour period. I could not feel any affects from the drinks while I was drinking them. About an hour after I stopped drinking. The alcohol hit me all at once. Cany anyone tell me if this is because of the hypothyroidism? Because for me, it seemed like the alcohol was not metabolizing at all and then it started metabolizing all at once. Any info anyone can give me about this is greatly appreicated.
