Low Carb Diet?: I agree w/ dr killian that ketones may be causing alcohol smell on breath. However, it may not be a serious problem. If someone is following a low-carb diet as part of their treatment for pre-diabetes or diabetes, they metabolize fatty acids instead of glucose for energy, and ketones can build up. As long as the sugar is staying ok (blow 140 fasting, below 180 2 hours after meals) this is ok. ...Read more

My husband says drinking red wine is good 4 health is it true? I was totally against alcohol hearing this from my husband I was confused can u help?
Antioxidants...: Red wine has been shown to be beneficial for health-likely due to the antioxidants that are found in the skin of the grapes. This is not a reason to start drinking wine if you don't drink alcohol. Excessive alcohol consumption certainly has risks that outweigh the benefits.

How serious is a fatty liver with a lesion on it? Husband had this for almost 2 yrs now. Not being treated. He is a heavy smoker and no alcohol usage.
