Is it fine to drink 2 glasses of wine per evening without doing any liver damage?

Depends.: It depends on your your sex, type of drink ( different drinks has different concentration of alcohol) and pre-existing liver problem. For female more than 2 drinks can cause liver damage in the long run. It may happen even with lower amount of drink if there is pre-existing liver problem. ...Read more

Is it ok to drink 2 glasses of wine/wk if you have fatty liver? Don't know how serious mine is, but docs don't think I need biopsy b/c normal levels

Is it ok to drink 2 glasses of wine/wk if you have fatty liver? Don't know how serious mine is, but docs don't think I need biopsy b/c normal levels

You could ask this: question to 10 different doctors and probably get at least 5 different answers. There would be no scientific study done that measures the effects of 2 glasses of wine per week vs. none. The point is to avoid liver toxins; alcohol is a common one. Two glasses a week isn't very much. One camp would say why do it if there is a chance it could hurt, even a little. Others, that much likely won't matter ...Read more

With an extremity injury, which causes less stress on the liver: drink 2 glasses of wine, or take the Vicodin my MD prescribed me? Obviously not both.

With an extremity injury, which causes less stress on the liver: drink 2 glasses of wine, or take the Vicodin my MD prescribed me? Obviously not both.

It depends: That is a difficult question to answer since there are a number of variables which need to be taken into account. Factors which effect the liver's ability to metabolize acetaminophen or wine include your baseline hepatic function, other medications that you are taking, how much wine/alcohol you drink and for how long, and how much Vicodin or other acetaminophen containing drugs you are taking. ...Read more

Health studies suggest men drink 1-2 glasses of wine a day. I drink 1.5 (split the difference). Can this habit increase risk of fatty liver?

Health studies suggest men drink 1-2 glasses of wine a day.  I drink 1.5 (split the difference). Can this habit increase risk of fatty liver?

Not per se: Hi. The amount you drink is good for you (and sure makes for a nice dinner with your partner!). It will not put you at risk for fatty liver in the absence of comorbid conditions like type 2 diabetes, or bad genes. To your good health, cheers! ...Read more

Does 1 glass of red wine (250 ml, 14.5% alcohol) taken everyday causes liver damage in a young healthy individual? I drink lots of water.

Does 1 glass of red wine (250 ml, 14.5% alcohol)  taken everyday causes liver damage in a young healthy individual? I drink lots of water.

Seems ok: Red wine in moderate amounts like a glass a day is tolerated by one with normal liver function. If you're really concerned have your physician order a battery of liver function tests. You are averaging 3 glasses a day. ...Read more

Is a person an alcoholic if they have been drinking two glasses of wine a night for the last twenty years?

Is a person an alcoholic if they have been drinking two glasses of wine a night for the last twenty years?

Not Necessarily: Alcoholism is defined as affecting a persons life to their detriment. Something they would do even knowing it is causing harm and it has a negative impact on them physically or in their family or job settings. I personally feel that the liver needs a rest from constant exposure so i usually recommend that people not drink every night. ...Read more

Does drinking two glasses of wine a day cause stomach ulcers?

Does drinking two glasses of wine a day cause stomach ulcers?

Not really: Moderate wine, alcohol consumption does not help an ulcer condition but it does not cause it either... Alcohol in heavy chronic use may cause multiple digestive problems including gastritis, reflux and liver problems but other factors will need to co-exist to create an ulcer. For example the helicobacter pylori bacterium in the stomach lining, or use of non-steroidal ani-inflammatories or aspirin. ...Read more

Are there seizure meds on which i can safely drink alcohol?  I'd love to be able to have two glasses of wine w/o getting drunk. (taking tegretol now)

Always a risk: Alcohol acts on your brain and all antiseizure medications do too. So anytime you mix those medications with alcohol there will be interactions. You have to be aware of what that does to you and decide if that's worth it to you. ...Read more

Is it safe to drink 2 glasses of wine with celebrex (celecoxib)?

Is it safe to drink 2 glasses of wine with celebrex (celecoxib)?

No.: Celebrex (celecoxib) is a cox-2 inhibitor; as such, it has a lower risk of gastric inflammation and erosion that plague its older brethren.. But adding any alcohol to the mix, and the risk of loss of the gut sparing potential of the celebrex (celecoxib). You then run the risk of gastritis, pain, indigestion, and bleeding in your stomach. Bad idea. ...Read more
