I like Vino !
Mar 18, 2002

I am entering my sixth month since being treated for Hep C. My liver appears to be in good shape. I am still Negative. Is drinking any worse for me than anyone else?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Sounds like you a cure in the making? I don't think moderate alcohol intake, that is 1-2 drinks, glasses of wine or beers per day would put you at any more risk of liver disease than anyone else at this time. It will take your biopsy several years to normalize, but it will eventually get back to normal. Congratualtions on your cure! Remember everything in moderation! DTD
