Our expert says:
More than 3 units of alcohol per day can lead to high bloodpressure, diabetes and liver disease. Small amounts of alcohol cause a drop in blood pressure, but high volumes of alcohol increase blood pressure into a dangerous range. Heavy drinking increases heart size, weakens the heart muscle, causes abnormal heart rhythms, and is a risk of blood clots forming within the chambers of the heart, and a greatly increased risk of stroke.
