Liver and Alcohol: This is very consistent to the damage that can be done by alcohol and how the liver can bounce back. But, abusing your liver again makes me wonder how many times you will get away with experimenting with it's health. The second set of labs after drinking for two days may very well have been too early for accuracy. The bloating and swollen liver is exactly what should be happening. ...Read more

Drink a lot wether thirsty or not! All diet soda & 1Powerade qday NO alcohol!!I have mg/anxiety/anxious/tired/weak/bloated/inactive. All labs normal?

I assume you have: ruled out any medical condition that would cause excessive thirst (labs normal so no diabetes?). The drinks you described all have a stimulant effect, which probably accounts for the symptoms you report (anxiety, then tired, weak, bloated, etc.). Try drinking just plain, filtered water, exercising and eating well for a week. Better? Or, are you self-medicating for something else? ...Read more

Bloated belly and stomach pains.. Could it be alcohol infection?

Bloated belly and stomach pains.. Could it be alcohol infection?

"Alcohol infection"?: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however psbo (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of the urinary tract)must be considered & addressed. Check with your doctor for examination & treatment options. ...Read more

I was drinking alcohol almost everyday last week, march break. Now this whole week im extremely bloated, & having stomach troubles. Does this relate?

There is a relation: Alcohol is bad for the GI system. Alcohol can cause an erosive gastritis. It wipes out the microvillus border resulting in diarrhea and malabsorption with long term use. Also, alcohol is toxic to the liver resulting in a progression from fatty change to hepatitis to cirrhosis. Your body is telling you that you have consumed something unhealthy for you. ...Read more

I'm often experiencing bloating and gas after eating. I also get extremely gassy when I have a beer (it doesn't happen if I drink hard alcohol though)?

Consider: Well it is time to do a food diary. It may be gluten intolerance since beer my have grains like wheat and the protein gluten. Beer is also carbonated which can contribute to the problem. It does sound like you suffer from some tyoe of food allergy. You will have to do a diary and then find out through a system of elimination. www.drlugo.com ...Read more

I am 34 and have a hiatal hernia. I drink alcohol occasionally. I watch my diet and exercise gas and bloating have increased. Why? Soothing remedies?

See your doctor: Increased gas and bloating are symptoms of malabsorption, generally. This can be multifactorial, i.e. Related to diet, stomach, gallbladder or pancreatic disease, or a host of other issues. Sometimes over the counter products containing mylicon can be of some help, but i would recommend a thorough evaluation with your primary doctor and perhaps upper endoscopy (egd). ...Read more
