Does drinking lite beer hurt the liver less than other alcohols?

Does drinking lite beer hurt the liver less than other alcohols? Topic: Does drinking lite beer hurt the liver less than other alcohols?

Question: I'm a 30 yr old Male. I recently had a blood test to check levels and what not, and one of my liver counts came back high. Not troublesome high, but higher than what it should be (that's how my doctor put it to me). I used to drink mixers, jack and coke. Now I just drink Miller Lite. Usually have a few beers 3-4 days of the week. Yes, I know, all alcohol is bad for the liver, and I should quit drinking, yadda yadda - save it. Just answer my question please.... If you're going to drink, is it better (health wise) to drink a lite beer than other alcohols? Appreciate the feedback.

No, sorry light beer just has less calories, not less alcohol, so the same amount of alcohol is getting into your liver as with regular beer. But, taking aspirin the morning after drinking also really damages the liver, so you should be aware of that too.

This Site Might Help You. RE: Why do you get constipated after drinking beer? This question isn't for me BTW, but my husband wants to know. He wants to know why you get constipated the day after you drink? Is it just him or does it happen to everyone? Why?

Alcohol is alcohol is alcohol.., according to your liver anyway. Lite beer will only be nice you your waist line. Liver issues are very serious and lead to many bad things. You seem to control drinking so if you stay on top of health and wellness you should be fine.

not better for your liver. there are fewer calories in lite beer, so its easier to maintaina healthy weight. if your problem is your liver, the only way to work on it is drinking less. not swithcing between types of alcohol. your liver gets hit the same wheter you drink 1 reg beer, 1 lite beer, 1 shot of 80proof, or 1 glass of wine. sounds like its time to cut back...think of the money you'll save!

Nope. "Lite" beers have just as much alcohol content as other beers--just fewer calories. If you're drinking it in moderation, you should be fine. However, if you're looking for a substitute, I would recommend red wine. It doesn't have a lighter alcohol content, but it has other health benefits such as improving heart health, and preventing some cancers.

A beer a day can help you to relax so alcohol in small amounts can be beneficial for your health. Being more relaxed can help you to sleep better. You seem to have an insomnia problem. Most sleeping problems are probably caused by stress, depression, anxiety and worry. Sleeping pills can give you bad side effects such as headaches and drowsiness during the day so you are better off without them. To sleep better just relax and switch off, if you can. If you are having trouble switching off at bedtime some light exercise (for example, push ups or sit ups) at bedtime often helps you to relax, unwind and switch off and that often improves your sleep. Strenuous exercise at bedtime is likely to ruin your sleep. Common OTC sleep aids include Chamomile tea, 5-HTP, Melatonin and Valerian Root. Sleep enhancing foods include warm milk, turkey, cherries, oatmeal, bananas, wine and others as in a web search for "sleep enhancing foods". You can see further tips in a web search for "how to fall asleep and stay asleep".
