Duplicate of Relationships between Risky Drinking & Medical Conditions

Our group previously identified that females with AUD and females engaging in heavy or extreme binge drinking were more likely to self-report cancers and other medical conditions compared to their male counterparts. This analysis aims to extend our previous findings…

Scientific Questions Being Studied

Our group previously identified that females with AUD and females engaging in heavy or extreme binge drinking were more likely to self-report cancers and other medical conditions compared to their male counterparts. This analysis aims to extend our previous findings to examine relationships between sex and consumption of alcohol and the presence of EHR-confirmed health conditions.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (Alcohol Use Disorder, Liver, Cardiovascular, Cancer, Pain, Respiratory)

Scientific Approaches

We want to use All of Us to examine EHR and survey data on risky drinking/AUD and EHR-confirmed medical conditions. We will evaluate associations between sex (female vs. male) and alcohol (yes vs. no AUD; yes vs. no risky drinking) on ongoing or new EHR-confirmed liver, cardiovascular, cancer, respiratory, pain or other medical conditions. We will use binary logistic regression for statistical analysis.

Anticipated Findings

Our group previously identified that females with AUD and females engaging in heavy or extreme binge drinking were more likely to self-report cancers and other medical conditions compared to their male counterparts. However, these were self-reported medical conditions and we could not verify the presence or absence of medical conditions against EHR data. We hope to extend our findings using All of Us to examine relationships between sex and consumption of alcohol and the presence of EHR-confirmed health conditions. We anticipate that results will be consistent with and validate our previous findings that AUD status and risky drinking be considered in the clinical care of individuals with poorer health, especially in women.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
