Trinkmenge, Trinkmuster und ihre Beziehung zu Morbidität und Mortalität
2003 (German)In: SUCHT, ISSN 0939-5911, Vol. 49, no 2, 87-94 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Objective: Estimation of alcohol-related disease impairment.
Methods: Literature analysis, statistical modeling.
Results: Alcohol consumption has an impact on more than 60 different ICD disease categories. Both, average volume of consumption and patterns of drinking affect these diseases. Conceptually, patterns of drinking can be seen as moderating the relationship between average volume of consumption and outcomes in cardio-vascular disease, accidents and injuries. Worldwide in the year 2000, 3.2% of the total mortality and 4.0% of the total disease-related impairments (as measured in DALYs) could be attributed to alcohol.
Conclusions: Alcohol-policy prevention measures should take into account both drinking and average consumption.
