Subpopulations of individuals with alcohol-induced fatty livers and non-alcoholic steatosis develop steatohepatitis. Overweight contributes to the development of alcoholic liver disease and drinking excess amounts of alcohol is a risk factor for metabolic syndrome. Alcohol intake increases the likelihood of hypertension and hypertriglyceridemia. However, light-to moderate drinking has a favorable influence on HDL-C, risk of coronary heart disease and possible diabetes mellitus. Further investigation is needed to confirm the association between alcoholic consumption and prevalence of metabolic syndrome in consideration of racial differences.
