I need help. We have zero-tolerance for alcohol at work. I had some alcohol eight hours (3 to 4 ounces) before work started. I am a 190-pound, good, shape male 70 inches and 48 years old. Based on the 1 ounce per hour metabolism, I was sure I would be in the clear. I do not have thyroid and realized I was cold and gaining weight. I had my TSH drawn, and I was hypothyroid. Could the hypothyroid state slow my alcohol metabolism? Any defense I have may help. I would never have drunk otherwise.
Thank you doctor,
I have no thyroid. I am already on meds but my TSH was 10. I have no idea how I could still have alcohol in my system.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
When we are young and with less weight, the body metabolizes alcohol and other products at a certain rate. When we get older and gain weight, the body metabolism decreases.
Also, TSH of 10 is high and you require medicines for the same.
