I feel the effects of 2-3 cocktails more accutely.
Hi Im 41 male Iwas an alcoholic for 20 yeasr been sober for 8.
I have read on some sites that alcohol may aggrevate the thyroid. On Thyroid UK's symptom checker alcohol intolerance is actually listed, and I would tend to agree with the existance of this symptom. Whether or not alcohol should or should not be avoided, my general stance is that if it's bad for you, the chances are it's going to do your medical condition worse - so avoid it. Of course, if you already drink it occasionally and see no need to change, then this is fine - occassional should do you no harm. However, if you currently do not drink, or haven't drunk in a while and are planning to try some soon, remember to keep an eye on your thyroid levels and perhaps assume that if there is no other reason for any change which might appear, then it is due to the alcholol.
