Thanks for the query.
A person with heart disease should not drink more than 80 ml of alcohol in a day and not more than 80 gms in a week.
80 gms of alcohol is equal to 240 ml of alcohol.

I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

my college-aged daughter has a 5 mm kidney stone in her right kidney. They have worked her in to have it surgically removed (basket procedure) next week, and will have a stent for a week afterwards.She has a required field trip over that weekend and she doesn t want to have to endure that while having a stent (she had a stent for a month last semester and was miserable the entire time). She had a kidney infection the last week of January,the ultrasound they did then found this stone. She has had one short bout of pain/nausea since then (2-3 hours). She wants to wait until after the field trip to have the surgery. The next time available would be the week of March 21.Would it be dangerous to wait?
