Here is some information about keeping a balanced diet and maintaining a healthy weight.
We encourage patients to maintain a healthy weight to reduce strain on joints.
It is recommended to drink no more than 14 units of alcohol a week, spread across 3 days or more. That's around 6 medium glasses (175ml) of wine or 6 pints of 4% beer.

In Rheumatology some medications and conditions may impact on liver function so you will be advised in some cases to limit your alcohol even further. Please discuss this with you health professional.
