The advice in the NICE guideline covers:
The care of adults and young people (aged 10 years and older) who have any of the following physical health problems that are completely or partly caused by alcohol use:
• acute alcohol withdrawal (which occurs if a ‘dependent’ drinker suddenly stops drinking)
• lack of thiamine (also called vitamin B1) in the body, which can cause a condition called Wernicke’s encephalopathy
• liver disease
• inflammation of the pancreas (called pancreatitis).
