Can you tell me is it possible that I'm allergic to beer/alcohol?

Can you tell me is it possible that I'm allergic to beer/alcohol?

All is possible: But you haven't said what kind of reaction it is, so it may or may not be true "allergy" - an immune response to a foreign substance, usually a protein. There are many agents in alcoholic beverages besides the alcohol, including flavorings, colorings, and what remains of whatever was fermented to produce the alcohol. Allergies to any and all of these are possible. You need to describe reaction. ...Read more

What is the alcohol content of light beer compared to regular beer?

What is the alcohol content of light beer compared to regular beer?

It varies: This varies by brand but we can make some reasonable generalizations. Most regular beers are about 5% alcohol, and most "light beers" are closer to 4%. If you want to know for sure, you may have to look it up for a particular brand or call the company. So about 5 light beers = 4 regular beers. Clearly you can get drunk on both so be careful!

Excess alcohol: Men are allowed up to 2 drinks/d while women have to make do w/just 1/d. However, you're not allowed to average over a wk so when you have a 6 pack at one sitting, you've had 4 too many. Worse, the Super Bowl isn't until tomorrow!

Hi I am wondering if I drank some beers yesterday and go for a lft in two more days will the alcohol still show up in my system.

Depends: A lot of factors will play into this. Most of the time a few beers or not increase the LFTs at all. If you are a regular drinker, or if you have fatty liver, or if you drink quite a few, it is certainly possible that the LFTs will be abnormal two days later. I hope that helps. ...Read more
