Tripple Threat: Overweight Women Who Indulge In Alcohol TripleTheir Chances Of Getting Liver Disease

Overweight women who indulge in alcohol triple the risk of getting fatal liver disease, according to the latest study.

The study done by British researchers was presented at the international liver congress.

 A study of over 100,000 British women found that being overweight and drinking alcohol regularly increased the chances of suffering and dying of the disease threefold.

Dr Daniele Prati, of the European Association for the Study of the Liver Committee, said: ‘It's well known that alcohol and a person's weight are major causes of chronic liver disease,but there has been a need for a large population study to compare these factors' influences on each other

‘Interestingly, the research found the combination of a woman's drinking habits and weight has an important effect on liver health and life expectancy.’

The study, conducted by Dr Paul Trembling and Professor William Rosenberg at the UCL Institute of Liver and Digestive Health, analysed 107,000 women.

All participants were classed as having a low or high BMI and a low or high alcohol intake ranging zero and 15 units a week.

One unit is about one 25ml single measure of whisky or half a standard glass of wine.


BMI helps gauge whether a person is under or overweight. People who have a BMI of 25 or over are classed as overweight.

The study found that compared to a thin woman who did not drink, drinkers were at 1.8 times the risk of developing the disease.
