I want to ask you, how the alcohol impacts on your UC course. I've never drunk any alcohol drinks. I've achieved the adult age, so theoretically/legally I'm allowed to drink such stuff. However, I wonder if it can have any negative impact on my disease - in addition, I'm in a remission currently, which's been difficultily achieved with infliximab (Remicade). It would be very, very stupid, simply, if I worsened this status with drinking.
I know that some people drink pretty much and don't notice any harmful effect, but I don't know if it depends on the drink type. What is the most mild/ most harmful liquid for the UC-ers? Is beer safe?
And the most important thing: how much alcohol can I drink safely? I want to emphasize, that I'd drink only very occasionally (my liver has enough work with the drugs I take).
My drugs (I've UC for a few years, if anybody was curious; autodiagnosed SA and depressive problems): mesalazine, azathioprine, infliximab, iron meds, vitamins (sometimes) & probiotics; the methylprednisolone therapy of several months if needed (then, protectively, potassium meds and omeprazole as well).
I worry about my liver and kidneys for the reasons above, I hope that unnecessarily.
I worry if anxiety problems (SA) could impact on the UC as well.
I have nothing more to say at the moment (I've already said very much for me...).
