Brief description of study

In this study, we evaluated the importance of these supplies with a detailed questionnaire, a nutrition software that evaluated the importance of each macro- and micronutrients and correlated these values with several hormones such as Leptin, Insulin, Cortisol, Ghrelin, and PYY involved in the regulation of energy balance or AVP involved in the regulation of plasma osmolality

This study was conducted in a stepwise manner : study of the energy supplies first, of water supplies next. Interviews and samples were performed or collected at two times of alcohol withdrawal to evaluate the possibility of parallel changes in craving for alcohol, supplies and endocrine function.
