Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) and drink alcohol free beer?

Is it safe to take diflucan (fluconazole) and drink alcohol free beer?

Avoid carbs: Assuming you are taking Diflucan (fluconazole) for a yeast infection, it would be best to avoid foods and drinks that turn to sugar in your body, including alcohol free beer. There seems to be a misconception that beer without alcohol is low carb but in fact one bottle can contain 13-15grams of carbs. Yeast live on sugars/carbs so a low carb diet that is preferable gluten -free as well, is best.

Can someone who was an alcoholic have a few beers from time to time? Will it trigger withdrawal?

Can someone who was an alcoholic have a few beers from time to time? Will it trigger withdrawal?

Tough; case by case: Most individuals who have struggled with alcoholism in past and can drink in moderation after a sustained period of abstinence only if they have done the recovery work of building relationships and routines that are supportive of health and not tied to drinking. It is still risky. I've known people who thought they could do it after 20 years of sobriety and couldn't. Consider the risks.

I had a cdt test yesterday but consumed 4 non alcoholic beers 7 days ago. I noticed today that the non alcoholic beer has a 0.5% alcohol level.

No problema: Even standard alcohol drinks, (1 shot = 1 beer = 1 glass of wine) should be metabolized in a healthy person at about 1 per hour. So seven very low or no alcohol beers 7 days of go should not be any kind of problem days later.

I like to unwind after work everyday with 2-3 beers during dinner and watching tv., does that mean I'm an alcoholic?

I like to unwind after work everyday with 2-3 beers during dinner and watching tv., does that mean I'm an alcoholic?

See below: Weekly maximums for alcohol use are 14 drinks for males and 7 for females or males over 65 years old. Anything above this is considered at risk drinking and may indicate a problem. It does not mean you are automatically an alcoholic however unless it creates problems in health, other obligations are missed, there is a desire or attempts to cut down but can't.

I like to drink a beer every now again alone, am I an alcoholic?

I like to drink a beer every now again alone, am I an alcoholic?

Probably not: There is no exact test for alcoholism. In general the cage questioneer can be helpful. If you have felt a need to cut down on your drinking, been angry when others have said you drink too much, felt guilty about you drinking, or needed an eye opener drink in the morning, you may have a problem.

Someone I know drank over 30 bottles of beer. Is he an alcoholic?

Someone I know drank over 30 bottles of beer. Is he an alcoholic?

Highly likely he is: Although you diagnose alcohol problems not strictly by how much someone is drinking and more by how much harm it is doing to their life, nobody can drink 30 beers in the course of a drinking episode without being HIGHLY tolerant to alcohol (it is equivalent to 1 1/2 liters of vodka). Anyone who tolerates that has to be LOTS drinking daily or close to it, and likely has the associated problems.

Help please! Is drinking mixed alcoholic drink better than just drinking beers?

Both are bad: Mixed drinks and beer are the same after a fashion. The rule is alcohol in the drink. Making a mixed drink, you may get more alcohol in the drink than the 1oz the drink calls for. Beer can vary with alcohol by volume (german weiss/wheat beers versus american lagers). So neither is better.

Non alcoholic beer whilst having a fatty liver-safe?

NASH - BEER: Hi ~ Yes, NASH + non alcohol beer is completely OK and won't worsen NASH as long as you don't drink too much since it contains carbs. If you are OBESE please go on carbo reduced diet to reduce fatty infiltration in liver. Thanks

I drink 2-3 bottles of (500 ml) strong beer three times a week. Is this ok? Am I alcoholic?

Probably not: If the drinking is causing any problems for you, e.g., trouble with your friends or family, and you drink anyhow, you would be an alcoholic. If the drinking does cause any problems for you, than you are not an alcoholic.

Diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago - can drink at all? And why do I get drink off just 1 or 2 beers now? My husband was diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago... He served in the military where they treated him a disease

Diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago - can drink at all? And why do I get drink off just 1 or 2 beers now? My husband was diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago... He served in the military where they treated him a disease

He: He gets drunk after just a beer or two now because of his alcoholic hepatitis. The hepatitis means that his liver cells have become inflammed (injured). The unhealthy liver cells can no longer metabolize (break down) the alcohol he drinks. When his liver was healthier, the cells could metabolize the alcohol. If he continues to drink, he may well develop cirrhosis. Cirrhosis destroys liver cells and creates fibrous scar tissue. Since we need our liver to metabolize a lot more than just alcohol, it is essential to live. Please look up alanon in your yellow pages. You clearly would benefit from the knowledge and support that this group can provide. Your participation is anonymous and there is no fee to join. Please show this to your husband: no if's and or but's. If you continue to drink, even lesser amounts than before, you will be killing yourself. There are three outcomes for an alcoholic: sobriety, insanity or death. If you elect for sobriety, than let your doctor know and he / she can assist you with obtaining rehabilitation and detoxification if indicated. Alcoholics anonymous is the best back bone for any program of sobriety. Getting a good 12 step sponsor is another essential. Your wife cared enough to contact this site. I hope that you are willing to take the next step in saving your life. For help with finding alcoholic anonymous meetings in san diego you can check under "find an aa meeting" at the www. Aa.Org website. My best to you and your wife. Sincerely and respectfully, dr. Heidi fowler.

I have an alcoholic breath & saliva test, along with a drug test, on Monday evening. Can I have a couple beers 24 hours before & still pass the test?

I have an alcoholic breath & saliva test, along with a drug test, on Monday evening. Can I have a couple beers 24 hours before & still pass the test?

May be not: It depends on what tests are done. Urine test can be positive for 80 hour alcohol intake. Alcohol is a poison and never did anybody any good ever. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

I was diagnosed with fatty liver. Is drinking non-alcoholic beer now okay?

I was diagnosed with fatty liver. Is drinking non-alcoholic beer now okay?

Calories!: Fatty liver is incredibly common, predominantly due to: high alcohol intake, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity. The more of these risks you have, the greater the chance of fatty liver. Addressing these risks is an important step to correcting fatty liver. Distinguish hepatosteatosis (fatty liver) from steatohepatitis (fatty liver with abnormal liver tests that risks cirrhosis & liver cancer).
