I was emailing with a woman yesterday about drinking alcohol and being on RA meds. Here's what I had to say about it . . .
Ok, I'm not a physician, I'm in no place to promote drinking and alcohol, but in my opinion as long as you aren't abusing alcohol (a good tip for everyone I think), and you are generally healthy, you will be ok.
Get your blood work done regularly, stay open with your doctor about your lifestyle, and then be smart about it. I told my doc that I'm not going to give up my glass of wine at dinner and that was that. Hopefully my Irish liver keeps me healthy.
I think it's a good rule that you don't abuse alcohol. That you don't abuse your body and do what would make your body feel bad. But a glass of wine is the best thing for me at this very moment.
Cheers! Here's to your health!
