Auto-brewery syndrome.....

How common is auto-brewery syndrome?

Because auto-brewery syndrome is so rare, it's diagnosis is frequently just as unusual. People often only become aware of the condition after failing a breathalyzer test. In other instances, people may seek help from a doctor for symptoms commonly associated intoxication, even though they have not been drinking.

Can alcoholics get auto-brewery syndrome?
It's sometimes called “drunkenness disease.” This rare condition makes you intoxicated — drunk — without drinking alcohol. This happens when your body turns sugary and starchy foods (carbohydrates) into alcohol. Auto brewery syndrome can be difficult to diagnose. It may also be mistaken for other conditions.

Medication. Doctors can treat auto-brewery syndrome with antifungals and, in some cases, antibiotics. Antifungals can help reduce the amount of fungus in the gut. Doctors also use these drugs to treat fungal infections that cause gastrointestinal symptoms.

Auto-Brewery Syndrome (ABS), also called Gut Fermentation Syndrome, is a rare, underdiagnosed medical condition. This is caused by fermentation of ingested carbohydrate by gut fungi resulting in endogenous production of ethanol.
