Because of the natural changes the body goes through as we age and the slower way we metabolize alcohol as we get older, drinking can have serious health consequences in older adults, according to multiple reports.

The 2021 University of Michigan National Poll on Healthy Aging noted nearly two of every three adults between the ages of 50-80 reported drinking alcohol in the past year, with approximately one in four in this group reported drinking six or more drinks on at least one occasion.

"In many cases, particularly for older adults, not drinking alcohol at all is the safest option.

Many medications and chronic health conditions become more common as people age and thus alcohol abstinence is often the safest choice.".

The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) recommends for healthy adults over the age of 65 who are not on prescription medications to limit alcohol to no more than seven drinks per week.

Additionally, older adults have less water in the body compared to when they were younger, so when they also drink alcohol, they are at more risk for dehydration because alcohol makes us urinate more, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend older adults have a choice: they can choose not to drink or drink in moderation, limiting alcohol intake to two drinks (or less) every day in men and one (or less) in women to minimize risks related to drinking

They emphasize older adults who are on any potential prescription medications that can interact with alcohol or have a chronic medical or mental health condition that can get worse with drinking should not drink any alcohol

He reminded that addressing alcohol use among older adults should be linked to managing stressors such as retirement, financial stressors, loneliness, and medical problems that may contribute to the drinking

"My advice to adults over the age of 65 is to keep track of how much alcohol they use, how often, how many drinks they have every time they drink (and how heavy their pour is)
