Re: does excessive beer cause swelling

It depends on your current state of health. ... I do know excessive beer can cause alcoholism.

Re: does excessive beer cause swelling

yes. alcohol, soda and coffee all cause (not only) water retention, they also cause dehydration. best to be moderate in all you do. drink more water. i cut them all out of my life. alcohol also intensifies the pain of fibro.
peace,

ps. welcome to the boards.

Do you have fibro, and drink beer? Before I became sick, and my battle with pain, I loved to have a beer with my husband on a hot day when we were at a baseball game, or sitting on our porch. It always tasted great, but 10 minutes later I would have a massive headache, and it was not worth it. I try to avoid things that make me sick, why would I want to drink something that I knew would make me sicker? It was never worth it.

I guess you have to figure out if it is worth it. Good luck.

Re: does excessive beer cause swelling

Hi,

This is interesting. I don't know about the swelling, but I do know that some people, fibro or not have yeast problems. It can cause bloating. Alot of alcohol has a grain base. I used to have a beer every so often, but it didn't agree with me. I cut out most wheat and anything containing yeast a couple of years ago along with processed sugars. I lost weight and no longer have the IBS that many fibro people have. Come to think of it, it can cause swelling, my husband gets gout occasionally and sometimes drinking a beer will trigger it.

Beer can cause gout. Search for Gout diet and you will see it is one of the leading factors. Alcohol too, and liver, sweetbread, sardines, etc...check it out.

excessive beer is a symptom of alcoholism not a cause
