Alcohol and Heart Disease

Updated on May 10, 2018

Reducing your alcohol intake may be an important part of managing heart disease. If your doctor suggests limiting alcohol, finding support and accountability is important to achieving your goal.

On MyHeartDiseaseTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with heart disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Alcohol consumption is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about alcohol consumption:

I used to smoke and drink a lot too. Alcoholic drinking for me.

After meeting with the dietician yesterday she told me NO beer, NO wine and I can only have 5 drinks of alcohol a week, mixed with water or tonic water.

Does anyone here drink or smoke?

A member shares how their self-medicating for depression has made their heart problems worse.

Can you relate?
