BACKGROUND & AIMS Alcohol is the main contributing factor of alcoholic cirrhosis, but less is known about the significance of drinking pattern. METHODS We investigated the risk of alcoholic cirrhosis among 55,917 participants (aged 50-64 years) in the Danish Cancer, Diet, and Health study (1993-2011). Baseline information on alcohol intake, drinking pattern, and confounders was obtained from a questionnaire. Follow-up information came from national registers. We calculated hazard ratios (HRs… Expand
Alcohol drinking patterns and liver cirrhosis risk: analysis of the prospective UK Million Women Study
TLDR
In middle-aged women, Cirrhosis incidence increases with total alcohol intake, even at moderate levels of consumption, and this excess incidence of cirrhosis is higher if consumption is usually without meals, or with daily drinking. Expand
Risk for alcoholic liver cirrhosis after an initial hospital contact with alcohol problems: A nationwide prospective cohort study
TLDR
Hospital patients with alcohol problems had a much greater risk for alcoholic liver cirrhosis compared to the general population, and the risk was particularly increased for patients 40‐59 years and for patients diagnosed with harmful use or dependence. Expand
Risk Behaviors Associated with Alcohol Consumption Predict Future Severe Liver Disease
TLDR
Investigating whether type and pattern of alcohol consumption early in life could predict development of severe liver disease in adolescent men conscribed to military service in Sweden in 1970 found certain risk behaviors can identify young men with a high risk of developing severe Liver disease. Expand
Heavy daily alcohol intake at the population level predicts the weight of alcohol in cirrhosis burden worldwide.
TLDR
On a population level heavy daily drinking significantly influences the impact of alcohol on the cirrhosis burden, and reducing heavy drinking should be considered as an important target for public health monitoring and policies. Expand
Alcohol Consumption and Risk of Liver Cirrhosis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
OBJECTIVES To systematically summarize the risk relationship between different levels of alcohol consumption and incidence of liver cirrhosis. METHODS MEDLINE and Embase were searched up to MarchExpand
Lifetime drinking history in patients with alcoholic liver disease and patients with alcohol use disorder without liver disease
TLDR
Females with ALD had significantly lower alcohol consumption than men with AlD despite similar duration in years of alcohol intake which supports the concept of female propensity of ALD. Expand
Obesity, Diabetes, Coffee, Tea, and Cannabis Use Alter Risk for Alcohol-Related Cirrhosis in 2 Large Cohorts of High-Risk Drinkers.
TLDR
If these relationships are causal, measures such as weight loss, intensive treatment of diabetes or prediabetic states, and coffee consumption should reduce the risk of alcohol-related cirrhosis. Expand
Lifetime alcohol intake and pattern of alcohol consumption in patients with alcohol-induced pancreatitis in comparison with patients with alcohol use disorder
TLDR
Males with AIP had lower total amount of spirits and lower proportion of binge drinking than those with AUD, suggesting the idiosyncratic etiology of AIP. Expand
Contribution of alcohol use disorders on the burden of chronic hepatitis C in France, 2008-2013: A nationwide retrospective cohort study.
TLDR
In France, AUDs contributed to more than two-thirds of the burden of chronic HCV infection in young and middle-aged adults over 2008-2013, and alcohol rehabilitation and abstinence were associated with above a 50% risk reduction of liver-related complications. Expand
Managing excessive alcohol consumption at a population level: The earlier the better.
TLDR
Although the relationship between the dose of alcohol consumed and the probability of cirrhosis is evident, the study did not support a threshold cut-off that could be regarded as safe in the non-adjusted analysis, and several of the findings warrant discussion. Expand

Lower risk for alcohol‐induced cirrhosis in wine drinkers
TLDR
The results suggest that a high intake of all 3 types of alcohol conveys an increased risk for cirrhosis, but wine drinkers are at a lower risk than beer and spirits drinkers. Expand
Alcohol and cirrhosis: dose--response or threshold effect?
TLDR
Alcohol has a threshold effect rather than a dose-response effect on mortality from alcoholic cirrhosis in alcohol misusers in men and women compared to the Danish population. Expand
Drinking patterns, dependency and life-time drinking history in alcohol-related liver disease.
TLDR
Increases in UK liver deaths are a result of daily or near-daily heavy drinking, not episodic or binge drinking, and this regular drinking pattern is often discernable at an early age. Expand
Different drinking patterns for women and men with alcohol dependence with and without alcoholic cirrhosis.
TLDR
Patients with AC seems to be predisposed to the hepatotoxic effects of alcohol- and the affected women seem to be even more sensitized, and that women had drunk less alcohol during binge drinking further emphasizes this. Expand
Smoking and risk of liver cirrhosis: a population-based cohort study
TLDR
Smoking was associated with an increased risk of liver cirrhosis independent of alcohol intake. Expand
Wine consumption is not associated with a decreased risk of alcoholic cirrhosis in heavy drinkers.
TLDR
The results confirm that the absence of a link between the type of alcoholic beverage and the occurrence of cirrhosis is still valid and the relative percentage of pure alcohol drunk in wine was significantly higher in cirrhotic, than in non-cirrhosis, patients. Expand
Drinking habits as cofactors of risk for alcohol induced liver damage
TLDR
The data show that in an open population the risk threshold for developing cirrhosis and NCLD is 30 g ethanol/day, and this risk increases with increasing daily intake, and drinking multiple different alcoholic beverages both increase the risk of developing alcohol induced liver damage. Expand
Drinking pattern and mortality in middle-aged men and women.
TLDR
Drinking pattern and not just the total amount of alcohol consumed is important for the association between alcohol intake and mortality, and future public guidelines concerning sensible alcohol drinking should include messages about drinking pattern together with quantity of alcohol. Expand
Prediction of risk of liver disease by alcohol intake, sex, and age: A prospective population study
TLDR
A dose‐dependent increase in relative risk of developing alcohol‐induced liver disease for both men and women is observed, with the steepest increase among women. Expand
Patterns of alcohol drinking and all-cause mortality: results from a large-scale population-based cohort study in Japan.
TLDR
Findings support the Japanese social belief that "liver holidays," abstaining from alcohol for more than 2 days per week, are important for heavy drinkers. Expand
