This study is about the endocrine regulation of energy and fluid supplies in alcoholic patients. A large proportion of energy and fluid is supplied by alcohol beverages in alcoholic patients. In this study, we evaluated the importance of these supplies with a detailed questionnaire, a nutrition software that evaluated the importance of each macro- and micronutrients and correlated these values with several hormones such as Leptin, Insulin, Cortisol, Ghrelin, and PYY involved in the regulation of energy balance or AVP involved in the regulation of plasma osmolality
