STOP RED ASIAN FLUSHED FACE WHEN DRINKING
There are many people who face the problem of their face turning red
while drinking alcohol. The biggest group of people who suffer from
red flushed face when drinking are Asians. In fact 50% of Asian suffer
from the Asian Flush condition which is why it is called Asian Flush.
5% or so of non Asians also get red faced when drinking alcohol.
THE CAUSE OF RED ASIAN FLUSHED FACE WHEN
Your turning red when drinking is a
result of what is called the Asian alcohol
This happens when your body is unable to
break the alcohol that you have consumed
completely and properly. When you consume
alcohol, it metabolizes into a by product
called as Acetaldehyde.
Acetaldehyde is actually a toxin and believe it
or not is more toxic than the alcohol itself. In
NON Asian Flush sufferers the body properly makes use of an enzyme
Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 2 to break down the Acetaldehyde into a non
toxic inert substance rendering harmless. In people who get red flushed
faced when drinking the Aldehyde Dehydrogenase is largely inactive and/or
enough is not produced.
The Asian Flush sufferer ends up with elevated levels of Acetaldehyde
which cause the red face as well as many other Asian Flush Symptoms
RED FLUSHED FACE WHEN DRINKING - health or
Some people debate on the fact whether this
change in the color of the face is healthy or
In a sense it is healthy because the embarrassing
red face and discomfort associated with other
symptoms of Asian Flush make the consumption
of alcohol less pleasant for the Asian Flush
sufferer which accounts for the low rate of
alcoholism in Asian countries. In a sense the Asian
Flushed condition stops you from drinking because
it is just plain not fun to drink if you have Asian Flush.
On the other hand It has also been said that when your body accumulates a
lot of Acetaldehyde this indicates that there would be more toxins in your
body and this can lead to cancer. There has been a direct link established
between Asian Flush and esophageal cancer if left untreated by the
consumer of alcoholic beverages.
IS ASIAN FLUSHED RED FACE GENETIC?
Studies have also revealed that inactive
Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 2 is at time
hereditary and most of the times it is
seen in people of Asian descent. In
most cases this is so.
There is new evidence to suggest there is
a acquired Asian Flush condition. This
occurs in people who do not have the
genetic predisposition for Asian Flushing. What happens is a regular abuser
of alcohol begins to damage their liver. Since the liver is primarily
responsible for the production of Aldehyde Dehydrogenase when the livers
health is beginning to suffer from alcohol abuse it is less able to do the job
of producing active Aldehyde Dehydrogenase.
If you are a regular and frequent consumer of alcoholic beverages and you
did not have Asian Flushing symptoms and all of a sudden do then this is a
definite sign it is time to quit drinking completely and permanently. If you are
the former genetically predisposed for Asian Flush then there are things you
can do to stop the red face and flushing when you drink alcohol.
PEPCID AC CURE FOR ASIAN FLUSH?
There are many studies that show if you
take heartburn medicines like ranitidine
or famotidine (pepcid AC) approximately
one hour before drinking, then it can
help you in reducing the alcohol flush
The exact mechanism of how these
medicines work in helping avoid the alcohol
flush reaction is still not solved, but to satisfy
the readers scientists say that drugs are antihistaminic and hence they
prevent capillary dilation.
One thing you need to be aware of is this method of treating Asian Flushing
has absolute no effect whatsoever on the reduction or neutralizing of the
toxic Acetaldehyde. So even though these H2 blockers may stop you from
turning red they won't stop you from dying!
PRESCRIPTION MEDICINES TO TREAT ASIAN
There are no prescription medicines to treat this Asian
Flush alcohol allergy condition.
There is a drug called Methylpyrazole. Using this drug for
treatment or prevention of alcohol intolerance and the
associated symptoms after consuming alcohol is still in the
experimental stage. Methylpyrazole (4-MP), an inhibitor of
The main problem with this drug as a facial redness treatment/preventative
after consumption of alcohol is the side-effects like nausea, dizziness, and
vertigo, that were short-lived in two subjects, but lasted up to 30 hrs. in one
