Question: I had hepatitis will I be able to drink alcohol ?


 Tauseef - Tue Feb 12, 2008 2:00 am

Hi Doc,

I am a 19 years old guy contacted hepaptitis E 6 months ago. I recovered fully as confirmed by blood tests and ultrasonogram test. I stopped drinking since I contacted the dieseas. My question is now that will I be able to resume drinking. I am also a smoker and sometimes I have very mild discomfort in my abdomen(right side) which lasts only about 3 or 4 mins.

Thank you
Tauseef Ahmed

User avatar If I had suffered an insult to my liver, such as any form of hepatitis I would not risk drinking. If your health is important to you I would eliminate alcohol (or greatly limit consumption), stop smoking, and avoid unnecessary drug use (legal or illegal). Your liver is critical. I recommend doing everything you can to preserve your health in this area.

Best wishes.
