Excessive Alcohol Consumption: Are You Still Drinking?

Alcohol is one of the high-risk factors inducing or aggravating prostate diseases, scientists have found that long-term excessive alcohol consumption has a serious impact on the male genitourinary system, it can result in testicular atrophy, testicular dysplasia and weight reduction of epididymis, generation of multinucleated giant cells in seminiferous tubules, spermatocyte degeneration and nil sperm count. 

So, what are the negative effects of alcohol on the human body, especially in patients with prostatitis?
The main component of wine is ethanol, which is not an indispensable substance for the human body. After drinking, ethanol is quickly absorbed by the stomach, 90%-98% of which is oxidized in vivo, and only 1%-2% of ethanol is discharged in vitro without oxidation. When drinking in large quantities, the amount of ethanol discharged without oxidation can be increased to 10%.
And prostate is the largest androgen-consuming and dependent organ in the human body. First, long-term drinking makes interstitial cells atrophy and pituitary atrophy, thus the secretion of testosterone is seriously affected. Secondly, the liver will be affected, the inactivation of testosterone is accelerated by the liver, and the level of total testosterone becomes low so that the androgen dependence of prostate tissue cells become affected. As a result, a series of pathological damages will occur, which need to be studied further.
Physical and functional deterioration of the elderly is an inevitable phenomenon, the metabolic process is also inevitable, so the ability to decompose ethanol is also reduced. Ethanol is mainly discharged through the kidney, so alcoholics and the elderly who have drinking habits, the alcohol will undoubtedly increase the burden of the kidney, impaired the kidney function, reduced bladder muscle contraction function, leading to dysuria, which is also one of the major causes of urinary arrest and aggravation of urinary arrest after drinking. 
If there is edema on your body, drinking will aggravate your condition. Long-term excessive drinking not only will cause damage to the liver function but also will cause fatty liver, alcoholic liver, and other diseases.
Ethanol has a strong irritation, which can accelerate the blood circulation of viscera and dilate blood vessels, especially visceral blood vessels. When suffering from acute prostatitis, alcohol should be avoided in order to avoid the spread of inflammation and trigger other chain reactions. 
For those suffering from chronic prostatitis and prostatic hypertrophy, excessive alcohol consumption is harmful, because alcohol can damage the immune system of their body, such as vitamin deficiency, reduce the defensive function of the respiratory tract, leading to anemia, and so on. Bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms will take the opportunity to invade, and cause spreading infection and the recurrence. 
Many studies also have shown that drinking is harmful to sexual function. Ethanol is a gonadal toxin, excessive alcohol can not only cause chronic nervous system poisoning but also cause gonadal poisoning. The major symptoms of a male are the decrease of testosterone levels in the blood, which damages the interstitial cells of the testis, makes it unable to produce androgen and sperm normally, and affects the activity of three enzymes that can synthesize testosterone in the body. 
Prostatitis is easy to cause sexual impotence and infertility, treatment is tough, especially for those patients who have a drinking habit. Therefore, patients with chronic prostatitis should not drink too much, and those with urinary atresia should avoid alcohol.
Long-term excessive drinking can cause chronic persistent hyperemia of prostate gland duct and prostate epithelium. After drinking, the prostatic gland is stimulated by alcohol, local capillaries rapidly expand and hyperemia, fluid exudation between cells and tissues increases, edema of the cells, people often have discomfort or soreness in the lower abdomen or perineum a few hours after drinking, testicular traction pain, itching urethra, and frequent urination, soreness of waist and other syndrome .
Long-term chronic alcoholism causes chronic congestion of posterior urethral prostatic urethra. Continuous drinking can promote zinc excretion, especially having sex after drinking, over time it will result in urethremphraxi and urine reflux. Therefore, chronic prostatitis, seminal vesicles, ejaculation vasculitis, non-ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, ejaculation weakness, and decreased sexual desire will inevitably appear.
Therefore, patients with prostatitis need to quit smoking and abstain from alcohol, which will cause serious congestion of the prostate and other conditions. At the same time, daily exercise, timely treatment, and correct medication can be used to recover as soon as possible. 
The treatment of prostatitis is mainly composed of antibiotics and alpha-blockers, non-steroidal analgesics, natural medicine like Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill with the functions of promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, clearing away heat and dampness, which are made up of a variety of natural herbs. It can resist proliferation, fibrosis, sterilization, and anti-inflammation, kill all the pathogenic bacteria, completely eliminate the inflammation of the prostate and relieve the discomfort of patients, restore the health of the prostate.
