What happens to alcohol in my body?
What the Doctor says..
Alcohol is absorbed into your body through the stomach and small
intestines. Food slows down the rate of absorption - that's why
alcohol affects you more quickly on an empty stomach. Alcohol then
flows through the bloodstream throughout the body, reaching your
heart, brain, muscles and other tissues. This happens very quickly -
within a few minutes. Usually, though not always, this has a pleasant
The best indicator of drinking is the blood alcohol level (BAL) at any
time. At a BAL of 0.05 (5 parts of alcohol to 10,000 parts of blood),
generally reached after one or two drinks, many people experience
positive sensations such as relaxation, euphoria, and well-being
(Hales and Hales, 1986). Above this mark, a person starts feeling
worse and gradually loses control of speech, balance, and emotions.
When BAL reaches 0.1, a person is considered to be drunk (i.e.,
experiences symptoms of frequent headaches, nausea, stomach pain,
heartburn, gas, fatigue, weakness, muscle cramps, irregular or rapid
heartbeats, dramatic mood swings, and depression and paranoia); at
0.2, some people pass out; at 0.3, some collapse into a coma; and at
0.4, a person can die (Hales and Hales, 1986).

Women in general have less acetaldehyde dehydrogenase than men which
is one reason why they generally can drink less than men. Pregnancy
certainly increases your female hormones which in turn could decrease
your level of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. It's a plausible theory that
your pregnancies may have altered your hormonal system. Whether it
will return to normal or not is anybody's guess. Acetaldehyde is a
potent chemical and can cause severe illness, so think twice before
you test this theory.

Regarding alcohol and allergies..
Histamine is commonly believed to be a main cause of an adverse
reaction to wine, possibly due to its relatively high concentration in
certain wines, although many foods such as egg plants, tomatoes and
fish contain a significantly higher concentration than does wine.
Conversely, certain substances in wine may induce the release of
histamine from mast cells or certain individuals may have a reduced
activity and/or amount of one of the enzymes that break down histamine
in the intestine. Histamine-related symptoms are similar to those
observed with immunologically-mediated food allergy.
Due to lower body weight , smaller livers, less body fluid and les
alcohol dehydroxinase - ADH( an enzyme which breaks down alcohol in
the stomach) women are advised to to drink less alcohol than men. That
