It would be advisable to avoid alcohol

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Although there is no strict contraindication, it would be advisable to drink alcohol, especially in such a condition. There is no specific food restriction.

Let me know if I could help further.
