Im positive and i cant give up drinking. Does beer contribute to the reduction of immune as well please advise.
Response from Dr. Henry
Drinking 1-2 beers/day is often OK without a negative effect on your immune system or liver health. If you have hepatitis C infection or liver disease then even that small amount of drinking can be harmful. Higher levels of regular alcohol use can cause liver problems as well as impair safe sexual behavior and the ability to take medications regularly. KH
