My husband takes 120 ml of alcohol daily that is 2 large pegs is it ok for his health?

Alcohol: It is difficult to answer your question. Alcohol drinks have different strengths (alcohol content). However, on average, each drink has about 14 grams of alcohol. For men to drink more than 60 grams of alcohol per day is excessive and at risks for many complications, especially liver failure. Suggest 2 glasses of red wine for men.

Most likely: Assuming you are of age and are no longer taking any narcotic pain medication then you should be able to have a drink. Happy anniversary and enjoy!

Is there a way to help my husband get an alcohol treatment program?

Is there a way to help my husband get an alcohol treatment program?

U cant make him want: ...To stop & u cannot make him want to drink either. If what u are asking is how to motivate him, the resistance common among alcoholics is formidable. Couples therapy can feel threatening & blaming to him. Best bet is to change yourself - attend al-anon or codependents anonymous. U will learn what u can do to stop enabling his continuing on as he has been, while feeling better about yourself.

Should my husband cut down on drinking alcohol whilst were trying for a baby?

Should my husband cut down on drinking alcohol whilst were trying for a baby?

Yes and no: The general answer is yes, alcohol is not part of a balanced nutrition & not needed for normal body maintenance. Males get somewhat of a pass when it comes to the effect of alcohol on fertility. Unlike women who nurture a finite number of eggs, the male can generate new healthy sperm by the millions daily. Normal sperm would swim better than any affected by alcohol, so it's impact is less on outcome.

Possible.: All statin meds are capable of elevating the liver enzymes. However, there are many many other causes which should be investigated before chalking it up to that. Should repeat the test.

My friend's husband is an alcoholic. He's lost control of his bowels about 5x this year. Is he close to killing himself with the alcohol?

My friend's husband is an alcoholic. He's lost control of his bowels about 5x this year. Is he close to killing himself with the alcohol?

Recovery: Is difficult unless the person is willing. Try to convince him that he needs to see a specialist in addiction medicine who can offer treatment for his alcoholism. He may not take this well so be prepared and try to be understanding as this is a real disease that may have a disastrous outcome if untreated. Good Luck!!!

My husband (age 29) has vomited blood while severely coughing. He is a non smoker and not into alcohol. But off late eating junk n fried food everyday.

See doctor: If vomiting or coughing blood, your husband needs to see his physician asap. Finding and addressing the source of bleeding is important. If he did vomit (not cough) the blood, there are even stress-induced ulcers which can cause this.

My husband drinks alcohol and smokes cigarettes can this effect us while trying to conceive?

My husband drinks alcohol and smokes cigarettes can this effect us while trying to conceive?

Insightful question: I must say yes even though I am not aware of any confirmed evidence. Alcohol can effect hormone levels in men and the combo likely has you concerned. We are talking about the future father! Any anxiety on your part can interfere with conception. Of course there are many reasons for difficulty with conception but asking your loved one to stop smoking and limit alcohol use sounds good.

My husband AST is 44 ALT is 256.00. Is there a need to worry. Two days before the test had alcohol. Any effects.

Minor: Increase alt means liver damage. At those levels there is no need to worried, but it needs to be followed in a couple of weeks. Certainly there is some minor liver damage, could have being the alcohol or could be something else.

My husband is pre diabetic his fasting level is around 120 I have noticed that he has a smell of alcohol but he hasn't been drinking?

My husband is pre diabetic his fasting level is around 120 I have noticed that he has a smell of alcohol but he hasn't been drinking?

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.

Hi Doc. My husband is on 30mg of lexamil a day. When he has a few alcoholic drinks there is a bad "reaction". Is lexamil and alcohol A bad mix?

Yes: Most antidepressants like lexamil (escitalopram) do not mix well with alcohol. If at all possible people on these medications should not use alcohol at all. If one does choose to drink alcohol while on lexamil it should be limited to one drink only.

Alclholism: Alcoholism is mainly an inherited problem with painful consequences mentally and medically to oneself and to the children who also will bear the gene. Those people have inborn excessive amount of enzymes to digest alcohol as soon as they drink it his body has too strong tolerance to alcohol. He surely is also severely mentally sick. Talk to his doctor to save him. He is too sick to be realistic.

My husband has been having severe flashes...Sweating intensely on and off for two days now. In addition to alcohol, he has had methadone for pain?

Withdrawal: It would appear given the short description that he may be in some form of withdrawal. If he has been on alcohol and/ or methdone for some time it may be best to have him under medical observation as he withdraws so they can keep him safe from seizing or having heart issues.

My husband and I are trying to conceive. I am ovulating today but I have a concert in a week to go to. Is it okay to consume alcohol a week after ov?

Back to School?: Sex has to occur before ovulation. Before the egg is released from the ovary. Sperm will not reach the ovary in time to cause a viable pregnancy if one has sex after the egg is released from the ovary. There is no chemical or physical connection between a new fetus and the mother for about fourteen days after conception. Thus alcohol in the week of concept would not harm the fetus.
