Find out what the medical community says about the safety in using crestor and alcohol together. Is it high risk or permissible?

This is a very common concern which pesters any person who is using crestor for lowering cholesterol levels.

Well, the answer depends on what kind of an alcohol drinker you are. Do you drink once a week, or once a day?

For moderate drinkers, there is good news. You can go ahead with both your crestor and alcohol together.

But if you are a heavy drinker, you have bad news and more bad news.

Why is crestor risky for heavy drinkers?

  • If you are a heavy drinker and have high cholesterol then it is definitely going to prove harmful to your liver and your internal vital organs.
  • Now if you are a heavy drinker and consuming both crestor and alcohol, this means a double whammy on the liver and Kidneys.
  • So the best counsel for heavy drinkers is to stop combining both crestor and alcohol together, and since cholesterol needs to be controlled using crestor, the only viable option is to stop or reduce drinking alcohol.

What can crestor do to the Liver in heavy Alcoholics?

  • Crestor is a drug belonging to the statin group, and is a chemical compound.
  • Any chemical compound that is consumed is dealt within the body by your Liver.
  • Liver is the major organ which helps in the excretion of the metabolic wastes.
  • If you are a heavy alcohol drinker then your liver may not be functioning optimally.
  • In such a case whatever crestor you consume, gets piling in the blood, without getting excreted out due to incompetence of your weak or damaged liver.
  • Such huge build up of crestor levels in blood is a sure ticket to danger.
  • So it is better to avoid combining crestor and alcohol together, especially when you drink a lot of alcohol

What other things can harm your Liver?

  • It is not always alcohol alone that damages your liver.
  • Chronic or long standing abuse of any medication or drug can cause a damage or incompetence of your liver, and create an obstruction in the normal liver functions.
  • Many other chronic diseases can take their toll on your liver like viral hepatitis or malaria.
  • Metabolic disorders may also cause chronic liver damage and result in cirrhosis or fatty liver.


Useful Tips for keeping your liver healthy:

  • Avoid abusing your body and liver with alcohol, recreational drugs or unnecessary medications
  • Eat a well balanced diet and consume lot of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Certain liver friendly foods like garlic, carrot, tomatoes, soy, onions, asparagus and Brazil nuts may be included in a regular day to day diet.
  • Drink lots of water, as it helps to flush away all the toxins and unwanted waste products from the body.
  • Avoid exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides and vehicle pollutants, as much as possible.

Considering how important the Liver is to your body, it should be allowed to function to its optimal capacity. Abusing it with alcohol and drugs or any other toxin for that matter, should be avoided at all costs, if you want to lead a healthy disease free life.

Despite doctors saying that crestor and alcohol are not so dangerous when alcohol is consumed in moderate amounts, yet it is better to be safe than sorry!
