Doctors will begin asking about your drinking habits as requested by United States Preventive Services Task Force. And for those patients who drink over the recommended limits, doctors should advise them on how to reduce their drinking, according to a statement by the United States Preventive Services Task Force, published in the medical journal JAMA.

So, what does this mean? Limits. Men 21 to 64 should have no more than four drinks in a single day, and 14 drinks in a single week. For women and older men, it advises three drinks in a day and no more than seven drinks per week. For pregnant women, there is no safe level of alcohol.

This is an update on the task force’s longtime position on the topic. They have recommended doctors screen and briefly counsel adults since 1996. In 1989, it recommended physicians ask their patients to describe their alcohol use.

Make a mental note, for next time your doctor asks when the last time you had a drink was. Read more on 10 News here.
