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.

Liver (Definition)

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

Hi, I'm 151 lb male. I have been drinking 10 beers (14 units of alcohol) once a week and nothing more for rest of the week, is that will damage liver?

Hi, I'm 151 lb male. I have been drinking 10 beers (14 units of alcohol) once a week and nothing more for rest of the week, is that will damage liver?

Yes it can: Yes, this is binge drinking -- a form of alcohol abuse, which can damage your liver. See your doctor about this. Not only liver damage is possible, though -- it's also neurotoxic, and can increase your risk for heart disease later in life. Http://www. Medicalnewstoday. Com/articles/259560.php findings with binge drinking were similar to damage caused by hypertension and high cholesterol.

What's the chance of damage to liver or other parts of body drinking 10.2 units of alcohol in one sitting once per month? Enjoy a few beers now n again

Bang Bang Yer Dead: Oh, probably like banging your thumb with a hammer once a month with occasional hits in-between. Time to heal, then damage, heal, damage, etc. And what's this 10.2 "units? "Milligrams of alcohol? \Ounces? Glasses? Buckets? Probably a bigger danger is that you ever-so-slowly increase your frequency and/or amounts.

Resubmit question?: Hi I think your question may have been cut off by the character limit on HealthTap. If you could please re-submit, we can answer it better. It's great that you have stopped drinking alcohol completely because heavy alcohol use will lead to liver failure, puts you at risk for cancer, and more. Here is a summary of the health risks associated with alcohol http://wb. Md/1mJPQ08 Hope this helps

Liver enzymes were normal in early April – AST was 32, ALT was 28, at that time I was drinking maybe 4 or 5 pints of beer on weekends (no alcohol during week). Since then, I have had 5-8 pints per wknd...blood test in a week. Will liver levels rise?

May be: May be is not much of an answer and you may already know the results of your tests. However, I would like to stress that alcohol is a poison that 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex.

After alcoholic fatty liver reverses, is drinking actually dangerous? I don't see myself never having beers with the guys or wine with my wife.

After alcoholic fatty liver reverses, is drinking actually dangerous? I don't see myself never having beers with the guys or wine with my wife.

Potentially yes: Drinking leads to fatty liver, which is reversible once you stop drinking, if there is no scarring already. For you to know if there is scarring in the liver you would need a liver biopsy. Alcoholic fatty liver can then turn into cirrhosis, which is non-reversible. You can probably get away with a drink every now and then, but nothing on a daily / regular basis.

What diseases prevent you from drinking beer or alcohol?

What diseases prevent you from drinking beer or alcohol?

Driving: Not a disease, but alcohol is a drug that reduces reaction time and mental awareness. Personal and/or family history of alcohol dependence is a disease, but does not prevent drinking. There are many other conditions that should discourage alcohol use including concurrent use of many medications and over the counter products. If you drink drink responsibly. If in doubt don't drink at all

How much beer is safe to drink everyday for a healthy adult in milliliter if it contains 8% alcohol by volume?

When I drink a beverage with alcohol I sometimes find it hard to breath. This is with just 1-2 beers or mix drinks. What could cause this?

When I drink a beverage with alcohol I sometimes find it hard to breath. This is with just 1-2 beers or mix drinks. What could cause this?

Don't know: Feeling short-of-breath (dyspnea) can result from a number of thinks involving the heart and lungs, but also can relate to anxiety. Some people are very sensitive to alcohol effects and have an exaggerated and sometimes paradoxical response where small amounts of alcohol can trigger what feels like a panic attack. Cannot say from your description - you need to see your doctor for evaluation.

35 yr old male. I really only drink water (probably 1 gsllon or more a day) and lite beer (4-5 a day) no cafeene! Is this little alcohol bad for health?

35 yr old male. I really only drink water (probably 1 gsllon or more a day) and lite beer (4-5 a day) no cafeene! Is this little alcohol bad for health?

Alcohol: Consistently drinking 4-5 beers a day is quite a lot. It indicates you're using this habitually, and could be at least psychologically dependent on the alcohol. With this amount, you could also have some physical withdrawal effects if stopping as well. You might want to see your physician for a general health evaluation, and let him/her know you're concerned about your beer intake (if you are).

Drink just one/two beers and I have shallow/short breathing that keeps me up. No alcohol, no problems. Certain beers seem worse (canned) but not sure.?

Wheat/hops allergy?: Allergy to wheat or hops is one possibility. But there are lots of possible reasons for this problem. What happens with wine or spirits? You can try gluten-free or hops-free beer. Here are a few: anheuser-busch - redbridge & sprecher brewery - mbege & shakparo (www. Sprecherbrewery. Com). Green's a uk firm makes 8 gluten-free beer (www. Glutenfreebeers. Co.Uk). Let us know the results.
