Fatty liver: Alcohol affects the way the liver process fat so your liver cells get stuffed full of it. If you drink often it can make your liver get fat – reducing your consumption can help it return to its normal size. You can spend half of your life damaging your body/liver and not feel any of the effects. Moderation is the key with or without pepcid (famotidine).
