maybe milk thistle and dndelion extract will help u..
I hve read that these two were good for liver..
Taking medication with alcohol can cause such an
interaction between them that it can, in some
circumstances, cause damage to the liver cells.
When damage occurs inside the liver, the immune
system of the body will respond to this damage
and cause inflammation to develop inside the
liver which can cause the liver to enlarge in size.
There are usually no symptoms of this occurring.
To be sure that your liver cells haven't been damaged,
you need to have blood tests done to determine if
it has. These would be the liver enzymes and the
liver functions tests. If the doctor believes inflammation
has developed, he may do an ultrasound or Ct scan
to be sure about the size of your liver.
You should not drink alcohol, now, and you should
check with the doctor about still taking this
If damage is done to your liver cells and if the
inflammation is not treated, it can lead to where
the liver cells die off and form scar tissue inside
the liver. This scar tissue then can block the flow
of blood through the liver....this is then, not a
reversible disease, it is a progressive one known
as Cirrhosis of the liver.
A liver transplant costs in the range of
$300,000 and up. You have to have the best
insurance to pay for it or you have to raise the
money for one. Those who are addicted to drug
and alcohol will not be able to have an evaluation
for a donor organ on the transplant list unless they
are detoxed from these for a period of six months
prior to the evaluation process and then they can
never return to it.
Having the blood testing done is the best option for now.
However, being sure that you don't become sick with
something else, right now, is also very important.
Avoid open salad/food bars where people can
accidentally sneeze or cough into them. Wash hands
often and use germ cleaner in between times.
Wash all fresh fruits and vegetable that people have
fingers over in the stores. Use disinfectant wipes on
shopping cart handles, door knobs, bathroom fixture,
tv controllers, phones, etc. You don't want to become
sick now as it will cause your body to work harder to
heal and also may cause you to take additional
medications. Try to eat a well balance diet to get
as much vitamins and minerals, naturally, from them.
Try to stay away from fast foods, food with alot of
preservatives, or prepackaged food. The more good
foods you take in, it will help strengthen your body.
All liver patients are told No alcohol, they are not
to take any medications that have not been approved
by or prescribed by there doctors.
I hope this information has been of some help to you.
What medication are you taking, at what dosage, and how much did you drink? How often do you drink? How long ago was it?
Unless severely damaged, your liver should be fine on its own, but depending on the medication there can be a variety of reasons not to drink.
P.S. I'm assuming this is a one-time thing, but if it's a chronic thing that's a different story and you should listen to abijann. :)
