Is it possible to lack an enzyme(s) that processes alcohol or some other biological reaction that results in an "instant hangover", such that there is the presence of headache and nausea just within an hour or two after drinking alcohol?

i when young could not tolerate alcohol,my son can better but gets eyes yellowish after a big weekend my daughter who has just turned 18 has had a few but now feels very nauseus and cant drink is this enzyme related


It is very possible to lack any enzymes as a genetic disorder from what I understand, I know I have a lack of the 2d6 enzyme which is needed to transform codein into morphine effectively, so codein does not have any effect on pain for me, it is useless and most likely toxic to me since I do not have the enzymes to break it doown or tranform it properly. It would therefore be reasonnable to assume other people can suffer from lack of another ezymes which affeccts something else entirely.


I think you are not quite right and you should still studying the matter.


Merry Christmas! I wish you a lot of gifts and luck in the new year.


You write well will be waiting for your new publications.

How's the program doing so far? Just have a small and frequent kind of diet. Keep yourself hydrated as well, it's very critical.

Too much intake of alcohol is just not good to anyone's health. Yes, there's a desirable amount for alcohol to be beneficial but it's different when the intake isn't at all for health gains.
