Abstract

Alcohol abuse leads directly to the loss of magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc from the body and indirectly to the loss of calcium and potassium. Alcohol withdrawal may produce shifts in the locations of these minerals from one body compartment to another. There are also important interactions between the metabolism of several of these minerals, and also between phosphorus and potassium metabolism and acid-base homeostasis. Many of these interactions are summarized in Table 1. Failure of attention to these derangements may lead to unnecessary morbidity and mortality.
