Doctor insights on:
Is Beer Or Wine Better To Drink Than Hard Liquor
Alcohol is alcohol: As far as calories go, blood levels, getting drunk, potential damage to organs, risk for breast cancer, a drink is a drink (see my other answer for that). Speed of intake affects how much alcohol is absorbed, and blood levels, whether you nurse a beer, glass of wine, or mixed drink. Trace vits, minerals, toxins, antiox minimal effects on health. All may increase good cholesterol somewhat.See 1 more doctor answer
Why does my back hurt when I drink? I don't drink alcohol often, but when I drink certain drinks, the middle of my back hurts so badly that I am sometime paralyzed in pain. I can drink beer, wine, and most liquirs fine. I cannot drink any pre-mixed drink
That's a curious one: I've never heard of this so I can only make conjectures...Could it be gall bladder pain coming from mixed drinks with milk or fat products? Perhaps there's an explanation in chinese medicine? I don't even know what kind of regular md I would recommend to see. Perhaps start with your primary care provider and see if any clues come up with standard labs, exam, or history..See 1 more doctor answer
Okay so when I drink beer iam fine even hard liquor but when I drink wine I poop blood it is bright red and it hurts?
Blood in stool: Defecation of bright red blood is always of concern and you should see your doctor about this and find out what is wrong, and to help you with any treatment that is necessary. Meanwhile do not drink wine.
I read that beer or liquor (example: vodka) are equally as good for your health (when having 1 drink per day) as wine. Is this really true?
Not all buzzes equal: 1.5 oz of liquor, 4-5 oz wine, 12 oz beer in US has generally same alcohol content. While controversial no alcohol is probably best but generally accepted 1-2/day max may be safe. Health benefits may vary, red wine generally accepted as better. In past showed greater association of cataracts with beer and hard liquor. Bottom line occasionally one won't hurt. Don't save up for all 14 on weekend
Probably ok: Drinking 1 glass of wine or beer is generally OK for a woman and up to 2 glasses of wine or beer is usually ok for a man. But there are always exceptions to this rule such as if you have liver problems or are taking some medications (like seizure medications) which can be affected by alcohol use and decrease their efficacy. Personally I would drink tea or water but to each his or her own :)See 1 more doctor answer

I'm having a urodynamic testing done monday, doing a urine/drinking log for 3 days, can I drink alcohol; a beer or glass of wine tonight?

What is the common ingredient besides alcohol of wine, beer, cider and some whiskey? When I drink one of them my nasal mucosa and sinuses are very swollen. I have also polyps in all sinuses. A year ago I could drink these drinks without any symptoms.
Sulfite Sensitivity: Sulfite sensitivity can develop by people. Beer, wine and cider may contain sulfites. Whiskey does not, but the mixers used to make mixed drinks may contain sulfites, especially drinks with dry citrus, such as sour mixers. Reactions can range from mild nasal/sinus reactions to more severe including wheezing and difficulty breathing.See 2 more doctor answers
Can I drink a little bit of alcohol while on the antibiotic augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate)? Maybe a couple of glasses of wine or a beer?
NO: Diverticulitis can lead to serious complication, some times even life threatening, you should follow your doctors advise take every measure to avoid complications, drinking wine and beer is not one it.
Should not: It is generally not recommended to drink alcoholic beverages while on antibiotics. Best to finish the full course before drinking alcohol.
Not especially: Used moderately, drinking some beer or wine can be enjoyable and not dangerous to you. Still, it isn't particularly "good." some studies praise the polyphenols and flavonoids (cancer fighters) in red wine. Actually though, hot cocoa contains much more of those. Cocoa is healthier than milk chocolate, because it's minus the extra saturated fat.

YOU DRINK TOO MUCH: On the days you do!Get a more detailed answer ›
Way too much alcohol: A bottle of wine is about 6 drinks (a serving is 4 oz, = alcohol to a shot or a beer), & 2 more drinks = 8 drinks a night. This is way too much for anyone's health. Moderate drinking for avg woman (per world health org) is 1 drink per occasion. 3 drinks a day can kill as many platelets as your body can make. Please get an evaluation @ a treatment ctr or from an addiction medicine specialist.See 1 more doctor answer
Panic + Alcohol: Panic disorder is relatively easy to treat. Why accept to live with it? Alcohol may make you feel momentarily better but it will not solve the problem. If you postpone treatment you may end up having to use more and more alcohol to take off the edge. Dealing with excessive drinking is more difficult. A cognitive behavioral psychotherapist specialized in panic will help you more.See 1 more doctor answer
Had acute pancreitis been 7months is it healed? Can I eat most foods and drink wine@ dinner or a beer on ocation?
Foods fine, wine NO: If your pancreatitis was caused by alcohol, then resuming drinking will not only be bad for your pancreas, but you will be highly likely to get back to heavy drinking. If it was not caused by alcohol, you are still taking a risk, since the previously injured pancreas may be more sensitive to the toxic effects of even low doses of alcohol. If alcohol was problem, get into some form of treatment.
