During the Christmas season, overindulgence of alcoholic beverages is possible.
These drinks can wreak havoc on your health and can cause a trip to the ER, result in being admitted to the hospital, and possibly death.
The intake of excessive alcohol can cause many changes in the body. Blood pressure can become out of control if you are
on medication or become very elevated if it is undiagnosed, holiday heart syndrome or atrial fibrillation can occur, gout can become very painful, hemorrhoids can flare up, and “sugar” diabetes can become unmanageable.
Your opinion matters.
