Regarding Drinking alcohol

Sure, I enjoy having a drink. I have a couple of drinks every night, but stop before I get drunk, unlike some people who drink themselves motherless every night! People say that drinking is not good for your health and liver! 1) If you drink responsibly, it doesn t damage your health and liver. In fact, coming to the health point now; if you drink responsibly, it reduces your stress-level, therefore reducing your chances to get a heart attack; extending your life! 2) Also some drinks such as Whiskey, cleans your blood from poisenous stuff, such as Blood Platelets sticking to each other; increasing your chance of a heart attack But, continuous over-drinking will damage your health, because it will mess up the normal cycle of your body and will damage organs and cells! So, in my case having a drink is fine, providing you don t get motherlessly drunk. I recommend then drinking responsibly and have a non-alcoholic drink afterwards! What do you think of my theory?

I think you are trying to justify this to yourself so you dont feel so bad about drinking every night!

Recent questions on  Liver

I recently had bloodwork done showing normal liver enzymes with the exception of an elevated GGT. Symptomatically, my greatest complaint was fatigue. my mono spot came back neg but CMV was pos. It's been about 3 weeks now, and my fatigue is resolving but I now have had a week of pain on my left side esecially with inhalation. A urine dip showed some Leukocytes and antibiotics were started, but they don't seem to be resolving the discomfort on my side. Should I be concerned? With a hx of an elevated GGT and CMV, could there be some splenic involvement?

Hello. I recently had a CT bc I felt something on my liver. It turned out to be a hemangioma. In the report it also mentions a subcentimeter parenchymal cyst in my right kidney. No one even mentioned it. Does that mean it isnĀ“t important_ I have never had a kidney cyst before.

I am a 22 year old female with chronic swollen lymph nodes only on my left side,which then leads to ear pain and jaw pain. I had my tonsils taken out a little over two years ago because of chronic tonsillitis. I had blood work and the only thing that came up was that my liver enzymes were really high, they were 250. I had tests done on my live and everything came back to normal. Could my liver an lymph nodes be linked?
