hi prabhu
brandy is very injurious to health.
it has side effect on each and every organ of the body.
start reducing it and give up as early as possible.
if u cant give up,then take help from psychiatric doctor.
in young age u will not find any problem.
when one start other problem follow it.

Hi,
Liquor in any form either whiskey,beer,gin, or brandy in long term use always causes bad effect on health.It causes damage to the liver leading to fatty liver,cirrhosis of liver and you know how liver is important to the body.Detoxification of toxic substances is done by the liver by such way it protects body and important organs of the body.
It has got effect on libido resulting impotency later on,initially it may have stimulant effect but it is temporary .
People say it has beneficiary
effect on heart,I do not see much truth in it.
yes if you take occasionally it alright but long time use is inviting danger to the health.
O k take care.

Sir, I am 43 years old and drinks near about 200 ml brandy daily before dinner for the last 2 years. Now I had done LFT and the SGOT shows 81U/L and SGPT shows 92U/L and the rest are normal? Whether the alcaholism is the reason for the rise in SGOT and SGPT?. I had consumed 10 hours before blood checking. Please advice the possible reason for the high SGOT and SGPT. Thanking you, Kumar

I have extra heart beats, the doctor said to ignore them. I have them everyday between 25-50 times. Should I? take my doctors advice and ignore them or should I pursue a second opinion? I have a baby on the way and I don t want to leave my family to fend for themselves in this world. Is it ok to have that many extra heartbeats on a daily basis? I m 26, male, 145 lbs, 5 8.

Hello, for years now I have nausea during and after eating and a lot of times when I m not eating. I wake up with bad indigestion every day and suffer all day with it whether I eat or not. A lot of times it feels like something is stuck. I ve had my gallbladder checked and it functions properly. I was told I do have a fatty liver. I ve lost about 15 pounds since November without trying because of the nausea and not being able to finish eating. Could it be possible that I have a food allergy even though I don t have to eat to feel bad? I also have bloody stools and lately loose bowels almost not making it to the bathroom. I ve had 2 colonoscopies with normal results. I could go on but I think this is enough to start with.
