Liver disease: Hepatitis C is a specific virus which is implicated in liver disease. Liver disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including diet, medication, alcohol, genetics, and infection (e.g. Hep C). Fatty liver disease can be potentially reversed if you are able to treat. Cirrhosis is thought to be irreversible. Cirrhosis often starts with fatty liver disease. Seek help for heavy drinking.
