i have hepitis c and enlarged liver, no serosis, what will happen i drink 2 to 3 beers once a month

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

Alcohol is known to agravate the severity of the damage to the liver in HCV .The amount of alcohol that is safe,depends on genetic factors,but we reccomend to never go over 20 grms of alcohol in 24 hours;2-4 beers,or 3 half wine glasses.No alcohol is even better.
