Wrong Turn

Red Dots On Skin, From Too Much Drinking?

Recommended Posts

You might also want to include their Fish Oil Concentrate Softgels with Omega-3. Kirkland's is 1000 mg per softgel. There are other brands that state 1000 mg, but when you read the Supplement Facts, the "serving size" calls for 2 softgels to obtain the 1000 mg.

I don't think any softgels contain 1,000mg of Omega-3. Rather many contain 1,000mg of fish oil of which Omega-3 is just one part (e.g. 30%).

As for staying fit - eat a balanced diet but don't overeat, do lots of physical exercise (e.g. an hour a day - see http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7530345.stm), get enough sleep, drink in moderation (or not at all), don't smoke, etc. It's all very simple, it's not rocket science. Only you and nobody else is in charge of your body and mind. I think the part that most people have a problem with is the exercise not the food (do enough exercise and you can still enjoy junk food!). They make life difficult for themselves by choosing boring exercise activities - no wonder they give up! Many people also make the mistake of prioritizing making money above taking care of themselves (mentally and physically).

I wrote "with" to mean they contain or include Omega-3. Mine contains 1000mg Fish Oil with 300mg Omega-3. Some fish oil softgels don't include it. But I agree, I don't know of any with 1000mg of Omega-3 either. Thanks for correcting a possible misunderstanding.

Good for you and your test. The Liver if healthy at birth is remarkable and apart from the heart is without doubt the last thing to go , if your heart was your liver you could drink to be 300 but unfortunately other things get in the way like diabetes, kidney failure , heart attack , alzheimers etc etc :o

The beer out here is exceptionally cr*p.

Actually to have been drinking that much I'd say your liver is very strong.

I have recently given up beer and don't care if I never touch another drop. In your case I'd say you have to cut down at least 50% and need to take 2-3 day breaks.

Exercise is also really good.

If you are an alcoholic or heavy drinker ,you should be taking vitamin 'B 'Complex , the best one i have found is 'Mega nat 'B ' , i found it in a drug store on the lower floor of 'Carre 4' i used to be a heavy drinker (a quart of whiskey a night)plus some , i then found out i was also 'Bi-polar , so came medication , 2 quarts and a hand full of pills put me in intensive care for 10 days , the doctor told me without the 'B 'tablets i would have been dead for sure , do not drink much any more ( Well , once in a while ) but rest assured i NEVER miss my 'B'vitamin . Go get your blood test any way

For those posters currently in the latest post "can alcoholics drink normal again" , some have noted if you can return to normal drinking , you were not an alcoholic to begin with .Would you say this original post by myself does not show i was AN ALCOHOLIC ?

My post shows in the new thread that i have indeed learned how to drink in a normal manner , but it is self imposed and controlled , you have to be your own master in this , no one can do it for you , only assist and advise . Wishing all you drunks in self denial the best of encouragement , You and only you can do it , but you must first admit honestly to YOURSELF that you have a problem , you may listen , but never hear the advise of others no matter how sincere they may (appear) to be .

"Liver spots" are not raised or itchy and do not occur on the "inside" skin of the forearm. They are brown "blotches" from one to several mm in diameter and not symptomatic.

The other skin condition associated with alcoholic liver disease is "spider hemangioma"; google images for that; it is fairly easy to diagnose. This is a vascular problem rather than a skin one.

Give yourself a break from the booze too, anyway and have the liver fucntions checked out..

See a dermatologist to get the correct diagnosis and treatment. Do not use steroid creams before seeing the doc as it will make the diagnosis more difficult.

Thanks, FBN.

My red dots are not similar to what you've described above. Also, because of dialy rain during the last 3-4 days, the temperature has cooled and these red dots are gone. This does not necesarrily mean that the red dots are gone because/i] of the lower temps, but they may be.

As previously noted, I get these red dots during hot times of hot season.

Sheryl has given good advice like you are: how long do I stay off of the beer before a liver test? Couple of days? I think 2-3 days.

I've been to the doctor for the creams. They were steroidal. I don't use them anymore.

Thanks again to all.
