Factors Affecting Alcohol Absorption
Guidance from Our San Antonio DWI Attorney
The state's law states that blood alcohol concentration at the time
of driving, not the time of testing is the determining factor in proving
guilt in a DWI offense. There are several factors that affect alcohol
absorption, and can impact BAC levels at the time of testing. Contact me,

Over my years I serving as a counsel in
criminal defense, I have successfully and won numerous cases. I focus on the science behind
the various testing methods. It is astonishing that a large number of
DWI cases can be successfully defended when errors have been made in any
part of the case, including BAC testing. I will carefully analyze the
evidence to identify any errors, including the issues that affect alcohol
absorption, a critical factor in DWI charges.
Are there factors affecting alcohol absorption?
There are many factors that can affect alcohol absorption in your body.
Gender, body weight, body type, and the amount of time between drinks
all will affect alcohol absorption. Food high in protein or food in general
can also affect the rate of alcohol absorption, as having food in your
stomach slows the processing of alcohol. The strength of a drink will
also affect how the body absorbs alcohol.
Rate of consumption, functional tolerance, medications, illnesses, and
fatigue are also factors that affect alcohol absorption. The faster you
drink, the higher the blood alcohol content can be, even with only one
drink. Medication can cause you to appear to be impaired by alcohol incorrectly.
Illness and fatigue when and the consumption of a minor amount of alcohol
can also cause you to be accused of drunk driving, due to the inability
to perform field sobriety tests correctly, leading to an arrest.
