Doctor :  
how can i help you?
Doctor :  
please proceed with your health query
User :   i was in hospital and got discharged on 3rd dec due to hep e jaundice for 20 days
Doctor :  
User :   my question is is i had been consuming alcohol since feb 2010..say a three pegs a week ..
Doctor :  
User :   will this be of harm../?
User :   i am totally fit now
Doctor :  
yes it will harm your liver, as it has already been harmed by the hepatitis
User :   i go for jogging every morning for 3 kms and then 2 kms walk and then phusical exercise
User :   *physical
Doctor :  
hepatutis or inflammation of liver due to any infection takes about 6-8 months to completely clear and for liver to regenerate new cells to replace old damaged cells
User :   but the amount i consume is negligible ..
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
3 pegs per week is less, for normal people, but since you have had history of jaundice and hepatitis, the same amount becomes significant in your case.
Doctor :   so it is better and wise to quit alcohol such that further stress on liver is eliminated
Doctor :  
and there is no harm
User :   so u suggest i need to quit for 6-8 months..??
User :   i can start by this year end ..??
Doctor :  
alcohol even iftaken in small amounts, does cause minimal harm to liver, which in chronic cases leads to chronic hepatitis changes in liver
Doctor :  
and these changes happen in even normal individuals over time
User :   ok
Doctor :  
i suggest you to quit alcohol forever, not just 6-8 months
Doctor :
