ADH targets the distalconvoluted tubule and collecting ductsof the kidney to increase water absorption and maintain homeostasis. ALCOHOL INHIBITS THE PRODUCTION OF ADH When you consume alcohol ADH decreases, causing decreased water absorption, and increased urination, resulting in dehydration symptoms of headache, lightheadedness, fatigue and thirst. When you consume alcohol electrolyte levels become imbalanced which can result in muscle weakness, tremor, fatigue, and vomiting. Dehydration results in decreased blood volume and blood pressure, which signal the release of another hormone called into the blood. Aldosterone targets the distal convoluted tubules of the nephrons to regulate levels of sodium, potassium and chloride. There are many physiological issues involved in a hangover:*gastrointestinal disturbances*low blood sugar*sleep and rhythm disturbances*alcohol metabolism*effects of nonalcoholic compounds ALCOHOL LEADS TO DEHYDRATION AND ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCES ADH (Anti-Diuretic Hormone) ALDOSTERONE How can you avoid the dehydration symptoms of a HANGOVER?
