Patient discussion about relation

Q. how is dementia and alcoholism related

A. Alcohol can cause dementia through nutritional deficiencies (e.g. B1, or thiamine deficiency, causing Wernicke encephalopathy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernicke's_encephalopathy) and probably also through direct effect on the brain. It can also cause a rare neurological disorder called Marchiafava-Bignami disease that results from damage to the brain tissue in certain areas.

Further more alcohol may cause hepatic damage that can cause alteration in consciousness and dementia.

Q. Have alcohol-related crashes decreased in other states when they lowered the limit? I have a doubt even after updating with the local news. Have alcohol-related crashes decreased in other states when they lowered the limit?

A. Wisconsin has seen nearly a two percent decrease in alcohol-related crashes and almost a fourteen percent decrease in alcohol-related fatalities a year after implementing a .08 law. Since South Dakota put .08 in effect in 2002, alcohol-related crashes have decreased by 2.1 percent from the average of the previous three years.
