does anyone know if alcohol is bad for lupus. does it specifically cause a lupus flare? obviously i know not to drink with some of my medication but i wonder whats the actually problems of a glass wine with lupus? i've heard many different things.

also does anyone know if its "beer and wine is okay but hard liquour is a no-no?"

alcohol and lupus
Hello I am Kalief and have had lupus for about 6 years now and my doctor has never had a problem with me drinking. But once and that was because my liver test was very low and he wanted to know if it was my lupus. So I had to go one month and a half without drinking. Then after that he increased my meds and that part of me now is good for now. I hope this helps.
