«Alcoholic with no liverdisease showed a small but significant increase in sucrose excretion. Alcoholic with chronic liverdisease demonstrated a marked and highly significant increase in urinary sucrose excretion relative to the controls, to the alcoholic with no liverdisease, and to the nonalcoholics with liverdisease. Alcoholic with chronic liverdisease demonstrated a marked and highly significant increase in both lactulose absorption and in the urinary lactulose/mannitol ratio (alcoholic 0.703 vs controls 0.019, p = 0.01). In contrast, alcoholic with no liverdisease and nonalcoholics with liverdisease showed normal lactulose absorption and normal lactulose/mannitol ratio.»
