  • Alcohol abuse and dependence as well as inducing a tolerance to alcohol.
  • Amnesia - Transient global amnesia can totally disorient a person and block recall of events.
  • Hypoglycemia--low blood sugar levels, alcohol consumption,while not eating can bring on hypoglycemia to the extent that a stupor results.
  • Niacin Deficiency -Pellagra. This disease effects the gastrointestinal tract, mental ability, and photo sensitive reddened skin.
