I have heard that drinking, with Hep affects your liver like throwing gasoline on a fire,
I was told that with Hep, no amount of drinking is  ok
take care

translate by google, it says alcool kills more than hiv, tubercolosi and violence

we have also seen a study just published end of 2010, alcool has been found to make more damage than crack, cocoaine and all other drugs.if you search community you ll find the post and link to study.
it is not said too often since alcool make  a lot of money....

all this is in people without hbv or liver disease, so i would check your liver y a fibroscan to exclude cirrhosis.if you keep drinking hbv+alcool can easily make death

wine is good only for those without liver disease and only 1-2 glasses a day, but the good is not from wine but from reservatrol and antioxidants in grape

a little ache in the right side of my body and lot of gasses

this is normal in liver diseases but cannot tell if there is severe or light damage (in any case there is some fibrosis and enlargment feeling that ache).check by fibroscan or biopsy so you will know if there is damage
