alcohol intake
Jun 3, 2009

What are your opinions with alcohol intake with patients who were acutely infected or were chronic and delveloped anitbodies?

Response from Dr. McGovern

What constitutes a "safe" level of alcohol intake is not known.

I tell my patients that if they want a glass of wine or beer once a day, that this would be reasonable.

However, I tell my cirrhotic patients to drink no alcohol whatsoever.

So it really depends on your disease stage.
