Lab5 Average Number of Alcoholic Drinks on Days Drank and the Risk of Chronic Liver Conditions.docx
Abstract: Excessive alcohol consumption has a well-known association with liver conditions such as fatty liver disease, alcoholic hepatitis, and cirrhosis. This study used data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) that was conducted in the United States. Statistical tests were utilized to determine if there was an association between the number of alcoholic drinks consumed on days drank and the risk of chronic liver conditions in American adults. A significant relationship between alcohol consumption and chronic/long-term liver conditions was found. After controlling for age, the effect of the alcoholic drinks per day on risk of chronic/long-term liver condition became a little bit more significant, and the risk increased to 4.4% for every additional alcoholic drink. These results confirm the important role of alcohol and liver problems in the general population.
