Will drinking moderate amounts of alcohol (500ml or less) twice a month, cause permanent ED?

Unlikely: It's unlikely that drinking 2x/month will lead to erectile dysfunction. However, moderate alcohol consumption is up to 2drinks/d in men and up to 1drink/d in women. 500mL = 17oz but 1 drink = 12oz beer = 8-9oz malt liquor = 5oz wine = 1.5oz 80proof spirits.

Alcohol: Alcohol calories are usually carbohydrates. But these are unneeded and not nutritional carbohydrates. So, when the liver sees this much sugar they make triglycerides, or fat storage molecules. Thus this sugar is made into fats that can be dangerous.

How can I cut down on alcohol?

How can I cut down on alcohol?

Cutting down is hard: For someone with alcohol dependence or alcoholism cutting down is likely harder than stopping completely and usually does not work well. People without drinking problems rarely would ever even think they need to cut down. Sometimes they may be able, but most recovering alcoholics will tell you they tried again and again and could not succeed, the craving was to strong after the first drink.

Is a little alcohol bad for men?

Is a little alcohol bad for men?

No it isn't: A beer, glass of wine or a single alcoholic cocktail isn't bad provided it does not make you intoxicated. In fact, red wine contains anti-oxidents which may be extremely healthy. However any, even a little alcohol is bad for an alcoholic because they can not control or limit themselves to just consuming "only a little".

Depends: The NIH says that more than one drink per day for women or 2 drinks per day for men may suggest a problem with alcohol. Cravings are usually defined as thoughts about drinking. These are problematic if you have (or have had) a problem with alcohol abuse. They may also be problematic if they are obsessive and you cannot stop these thoughts. A conversation with your FP may clear up and confusion.

Cephtin/Alcohol: Not a good idea to drink while on antibiotics. The general problem is that alcohol interferes with the blood level of the drug. So the drug might not be as effective. If one is a heavy drinker there are other considerations such as liver problems. One can have side effects such as nausea and vomiting.

What can cause alcohol intolerance?

Genes/Meds/Religion: Alcohol is metabolized by alcohol dehydrogenase. This enzyme is found in all humans but varies depending on sex and race. People with low levels - young females and those of asian descent may have typical red flush when drinking. Medication interactions are another important reason for intolerance. However, in the western world religion is probably the leading cause of alcohol intolerance.

Yes and No: Phenethyl alcohol is found in certain plants, so it is natural in that setting.

Why is rubbing alcohol good for pain?

Topical, right?: I am assuming you mean topically during massage. Rubbing alocohol can do a couple of things to help get a massage deeper into muscles or relax them. First, the temper change and sensation on nerve endings in your skin can help muscles relax. Second, the alcohol acts as a varying lubricant on your skin that changes through out the massage that allows different pressure. Hope this helps!
