Hi Doctor I got tuberculosis (TB) before 1 year. Before that treatment I drink and smoke. I do not like to smoke never. But now I just want to drink Beer. It is possible? How much it is enough?

60 ml alchohol is ok in a day. That means about 1 beer.

If you start means. U can not control the quantity in future. Alcholism will cause loss o immunity by direct and indirect ways. If you loose immunity. You can get Tuberculosis again any time which is called Reactivation. Or Reinfectio. So my good advise try to avoid. Bcz you already stopped alcohol.
