Dr. Michael Sheffield
Internal Medicine - Gastroenterology 37 years experience
Weeks to month: It can take many weeks to a few months to recover from alcoholic hepatitis and that is if you stop drinking completely. I can take quite a long time for the liver to come back closer to normal and would require good nutrition as well as abstinence from alcohol.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
