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.

I have been having symptoms that no one can diagnose for about two years. Assuming no rare disease, and no microbes or parisites, i believe 99.99 of all of my symptoms are related to my vagus nerve and digestive system as a whole!Now with that being said about on oct 14th i went out for some beers to watch a football game. I hardly ever drink though!!!!That night and next day i had all over body itching and have had it ever since!!About two days earlier my throat was hurting and i remember two days before that my teacher told me she was sick!!I have had the sore throat ever since then(about seven weeks), then out of nowhere on about NOV 8th my joints and muscles and bones have become very tender and ache, in particular my hands and wrists and knees and hips.!!!I have a high GGT liver enzyme with all other liver numbers normal, Low vitamin D in the past and now i found out that my Autonuclear test was positive when i asked to be tested for lupus!!!They did other autoimmune tests and they were normal!!!Never had any throat cultures done!!My doctor thinks that my throat hurts because of heartburn at night!!I am very concerned about the joint pain and the sore throat and NON stop itching that is NOW waking me up at night as of last night!!PLEASE HELP as the Veterans ADMIN sucks!!!!!
