Customer:

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok

Customer:

I work as a mascot

Dr. P. Jyoti :

did you have an alcohol test?

Customer:

yes

Customer:

right after work

Customer:

I was extremely dehydrated and

Customer:

had just exercised for 5 hours in a very

Customer:

hot costume.

Customer:

I was in my PMS cycle 7 days before menstration

Customer:

how did this effect the BRAC test I took 2 hours after

Customer:

exrsice and heat induced

Customer:

dehydration?

Customer:

I drank one long island tea right after work..nursed it for 2 hours

Customer:

then took a test

Dr. P. Jyoti :

well, both exercise and dehydration would tend to increase the alcohol concentration

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but this would not help you legally or in your employment status

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is because even after exercise or dehydration you are still expected to have alcohol levels below the limits

Dr. P. Jyoti :

exercise or dehydration would not allow you to have levels above the limits

Customer:

I understand that.

Customer:

I didn't know that it effect the blood at the time

Dr. P. Jyoti :

from a personal point, you can understand that that was probably what caused you to go over the limit

Customer:

I just wanted to know how it would effect the blood concentrate level

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but as far as legal or employment issues are concerned it will not count as an excuse

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok i understand

Customer:

I understand

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it would increase the alcohol level

Dr. P. Jyoti :

that is what caused you to have a higher alcohol limit with even a small consumption

Dr. P. Jyoti :

sorry for that - you were just unlucky in this i guess

Dr. P. Jyoti :

Customer:

Yes. I still feel this is unanswered. I'm not asking for your legal opinion on how you think the legal system or my job will view it. you are not a lawyer. I am asking medicaly, how does heat and exercise induced dehydration scientificly cause the blood alcohol level to increase? And can PMS also effect it?

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok i will give you the medical answer

Customer:

thank you

Dr. P. Jyoti :

heat and exercise both cause blood plasma levels to fall

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the volume of blood falls

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will increase the alcohol concentration as there will be more volume of alcohol in relation to the amount of plasma in the blood

Dr. P. Jyoti :

at the same time urinary output will also be decreased

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will further decrease the metabolism of alcohol

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this causes the alcohol concentration to go up with dehydration and exercise

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the menstrual cycle though has no effect on this
