Sex

One such factor that your Napa County Creek DUI law firm may mention is your sex. Women usually have higher blood alcohol content levels compared to men who have consumed about the same amounts of alcohol. This different metabolic rate is typically due to the difference inindividuals' size, body composition and weight. Women tend to have more fat and less water, which causes alcohol to break down more slowly in women than in men.

Stomach Diseases

Another factor that your Napa County Creek DUI law firm may discuss is the potential of a stomach disease to affect a person's rate of absorbing alcohol. Physical changes may occur to the stomach or intestines that directly influence the absorption rate. A significant change may be due to surgery, chronic disease or changes due to stress or fear. Alcohol addition may also affect the stomach by creating inflammation of the stomach lining. Conditions like gastric ulcers and gastritis cause blood flow to be increased. Additionally, certain cancers cause a delay in the stomach emptying its contents. Certain stomach infections also cause a significant change in the metabolic rate of alcohol.
