    About as much truth as this: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7771634 ď Females using oral contraceptives had significantly higher CDT values than those who were not taking oral contraceptives.Ē ............with research, you pay our money and take your choice.

    Hi all, Just wondering what milk thistle does and whether its effective, so I did quick google and found its herbal and possibly help liver function. The extent of the benefits isn't yet conclusive. Do you take it and if so has it helped you? Is/was your liver damaged due to Alcohol how much were you drinking? I've always been a heavy drinker from teenage and never knew when to stop, recent years started drinking secretly, mainly 3 liters of white cider at 7.5% 2 or 3 times a week then sometimes nothing for a few weeks, classic binge drinker. Since being arrested on suspicion of dui (hipflask and arrested at home in evening) back in December, awaiting whether charges are to be laid, I have not touched a drop, no shakes or anything just the occasional craving that are getting better. I don't think done any damage to liver and not planning to have a single drop ever again, as even one will lead to wanting another and doing it for myself now whereas before was trying to appease ppl. It's good to finally get control over alcohol rather than it control me but still early days.

    You WILL get it back if your own Gp agrees and their response is positive (providing you passed the medical which I think you will have.. why would they prolong it writing to your GP if you hadnít?? Fails a fail!) You can certainly tell them about your job situation but past experience tells me they donít actually care, this is strictly medical to them and you either pass or fail, thereís zero grey area because your job depends on it!! It certainly is part of the punishment and like you I will never jeopardise mine again. I think you will also get a short term 1yr license but itís a full licence. Just means like me you gotta do this again next year (but should be just a medical so slightly quicker and they write in plenty of time so you shouldnít experience a gap in driving eligibility) .. hope all helps, good luck

    Thanks for getting back to me! I guess this is what happens when your in the HRO just annoying this prosses is way to long, I ainít going to be doing this again! Been with my company now 6 years but there saying to me now I need my license back or Iím going loose my job! Pretty frustrating! Iíve spoke to my doctor, so she knows to expect it and Iíve also took your advise through the previous thread to get them to fax it! Could I still get my license back even tho there going to my doctor ? Can I send a covering letter from my employer ? Do you this will help?

    They will just be looking to confirm anything you have told them during the medical and basically get your own GPís opinion. So I would advise getting down to them, talk to them about it and tell them to expect it. Ask them to fax it to cut the waiting time a bit. They didnít write to mine this time but have been thru it before

    I regularly drank 4 -6 cans of lager every night for years. I stopped for 6 weeks but had 2 or 3 cans A couple of times during that time at Christmas. I passed the test. I have read numerous horror stories about CDT test but this proves that if you abstain for a decent length of time you will pass.

    You can read more about the CDT (carbohydrate deficient transferrin) blood biomarker here. You should maybe err on the side of caution and abstain from drinking alcohol for as long as you can in order to pass the medical. AST, GGT and MCV are no longer tested as part of the DVLA medical. It is the CDT blood test only.

    Your drink driving conviction from 2003 will not trigger a three year disqualification as it is more than 10 years ago you were convicted. The relevant offences triggering a minimum 3 year disqualification are: causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink or drugs; driving or attempting to drive while unfit; driving or attempting to drive with excess alcohol; failing to provide a specimen while driving or attempting to drive; https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/explanatory-material/item/road-traffic-offences-disqualification/1-obligatory-disqualification/
