Long-term alcohol abuse can cause several physical symptoms, including cirrhosis of the liver, pancreatitis, epilepsy, polyneuropathy, alcoholic dementia, heart disease, nutritional deficiencies, peptic ulcers, and sexual dysfunction, and can eventually be fatal.
Other physical effects include an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, malabsorption, alcoholic liver disease, and several cancers. Damage to the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system can occur from sustained alcohol consumption. A wide range of immunologic defects can result, and there may be a generalized skeletal fragility, in addition to a recognized tendency to accidental injury, resulting in a propensity to bone fractures.
