Abstract

Alcohol abusers frequently have gastrointestinal symptoms, such as diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. In the genesis of these symptoms multiple mechanisms are involved, including alteration of gastrointestinal motility. The aim of our study was to investigate oro-cecal transit time (OCTT) using the H2-breath test (H2-BT) in moderate and heavy drinkers.
