How can we make a diagnosis of alcoholism ?

A manifestation of alcoholism is seen in withdrawal symptoms like headache, tremors, sweating, anxiety, nausea, or an increased heart beat and fluctuations in BP. These come with a strong urge to consume more alcohol. The alcoholic may not recognize their problems with their alcohol consumption habits. This complicates diagnosis during crisis, if an alcoholic does not stop or curtail his drinks as they develop greater tolerances to alcohol. A psychological evaluation is crucial, with a medical diagnosis for assessing the pattern and extent of the alcohol dependence of the patient. Physical examinations and tests for detecting the problem must also be carried out. For serious cases you are requested to refer to our Omni.Care Doctor.
