Alcohol causes liver: damage, when ingested in large amounts over a long period of time, and sometimes even after a single binge. Chronic damage to the liver usually occurs in people who are genetically predisposed to scarring caused by alcohol. Eventually, the scarring becomes so severe it distorts the liver architecture and function, and the person gets sick. Hep C makes alcohol damage worse, and vice-versa.
By exam/blood test: By thorough physical examination, blood test and imaging like ultrasound exam of liver.

I am a little : nervous here. You are a 54 year old female and I am assuming that you have some form of liver damage related to alcohol use. My questions is - do you have physical dependence on alcohol? If the answer is yes - please only detoxify under some sort of medical supervision. I am hopeful you would have no further liver damage - but since you haven't told us what your diagnosis is - can't say for sure.
Can a bad case of babesiosis still leave liver damage after 20 years and can alcohol make it worse at this point?
Nothing certain: There are such claims made by folks who believe in ayurvedic medicine. They are very doubtful in thier validity. I can not say anything certain or reliable about this belief or claim.

Does 300mg temazepam causes liver damage in a healthy individual that drinks alcohol very moderately?
Unlikely: This is ten times the recommended dose and very ill advised. The risk of liver abnormalities at this level, however, is low. Any liver abnormalities would be more likely due to the moderate drinking than to a single overdose of temazepam. Fortunately this dose is not anywhere near the amount necessary to cause death, but when mixed with alcohol the amount needed to cause death can change hugely.
Is liver damage from alcohol linked to one's tolerance for alcohol? Would someone get drunk quicker with a damaged liver? Or the reverse?
It depends.: The liver uses an enzyme to metabolize alcohol. Initially, before liver disease begins, the liver can produce more of that enzyme with increasing alcohol consumption, allowing you to tolerate more alcohol. Once liver damage begins to occur, however, the liver is not able to make as much of that enzyme, and you may get drunk were quickly. If you have liver damage, you should drink no alcohol at all
Yes, but...: Only to a certain point...Since it appears that cirrhosis, once established is irreversible...Though progression can be halted.
Don't know what you: mean by "in cycle?" - you mean during your period? First of all, liver damage from alcohol is NOT normal, and social drinking will not damage the liver in the overwhelming majority of people. I am aware of no evidence that alcohol is more toxic to the liver during any particular part of a woman's menstrual cycle. Safe drinking in women is
Cease use of alcohol: Cease use of alcohol immediately and forever. See your pcp for tests and additional advice.
