Q; In patients with a history of alcohol abuse which three vitamins required to be replaced on relatively urgent basis after admission?

  • Thiamine 100 mg daily, 
  • Vitamin B6 2 mg daily, and 
  • Folic acid 1 mg daily
Another difference between other patients and patients with ETOH abuse is, they require frequent feedings, with the goal of an energy intake of 35 to 40 kcal/kg of body weight/day and protein intake of 1.2 to 1.5 g/kg of body weight/day.
