Beer Consumers: "Heavy Drinking Of Alcohol Can Leads To High Blood Pressure And Kidney Failure" - Medical Expert Warns Hypertensive Patients

6 years ago

A medical practitioner, Dr Kelvin Igwedi,on Tuesday in Lagos cautioned hypertensive patients against beer consumption, so as to prevent liver damage and heart diseases.


Igwedi,who gave the advice in an interview with theNews Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said that heavy drinking of alcohol also leads to high blood pressure and kidney failure.


“Alcohol consumption is a cause of blood pressure elevation and hypertensive patients should desist from heavy drinking in the interest of their health.


“Hypertension patients who do not consume or reduce alcohol consumption are indirectly lowering their blood pressure to enable them live longer.


“Anybody who has high blood pressure should stop taking beer or risks dying.”


Igwedi, who works with Hamaan Medical Centre, Surulere, said that the long held belief that consumption of alcohol had certain health benefits should no longer be encouraged.
