alcohol and hep c
Oct 22, 2005

my friend took the treatment and is now undetectable. what about drinking beer?

Response from Dr. Sherer

Alcohol and hepatitis C do NOT mix, period! There is evidence that even small amounts of alcohol ingestion worsen the prognosis with hepatitis C. You should advise your friend to give up alcohol completely and find other means to relax and enjoy himself or herself.
