The notion of the wet brain can be characterized as brain damage provoked by continuous exposure to alcohol.
This disorder is often categorized as alcohol-related brain damage (ARBD).
It occurs when an alcohol addict consumes too much alcohol for a long time.
This explains why the vast majority of those who have wet brain tend to be chronic alcoholics. As a rule, it is accompanied by the lack of vitamin B1 or thiamine.
Its deficiency is provoked by the inability of the brain to absorb this vitamin because of the interaction with alcohol.
The major symptoms of the wet brain include the following signs:
A feeling of confusion and loss of coordination;
Tremors in legs and shakiness;
Creating unreal stories;
Moderate or serious memory loss;
Lack of ability to make up new memories;
Visual and auditory hallucinations;
Uncommon eye movements and vision impairments.
Wet brain is most often accompanied by other conditions including alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
The major causes of this disorder include regular abuse of alcohol, anorexia as well as other diseases that involve deficiency of vital nutrients.
The wet brain may also be provoked by the introduction of glucose to the already impaired brain.
Above all, not all stages of the wet brain can be fully reversible.
The first stage is commonly treated with abstinence from alcohol and the rapid introduction of thiamine.
If not treated timely, it will only be possible to improve the symptoms, but not fully treat this condition.
