Greater risk of ascitic cirrhosis in females in relation to alcohol consumption.

Abstract

The risk of ascitic cirrhosis increases with average daily consumption of alcoholic beverages, both in males and in females. For the latter, however, the curve is much steeper, indicating a greater risk for the female liver, with the disease occurring earlier in life. Health implications are discussed.
