Hard to say: Kidney failure only occurs in the very last stages of very severe liver failure, and most people will have ascites (fluid accumulating in the abdominal cavity) and edema (swollen legs and elsewhere) before that occurs. Improvement of the liver disease, which should happen if you completely stop drinking, should help considerably. There is no pain generally, lab tests are needed to follow it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Don't give up, man!!: The questions i hear you asking is, "can i perhaps survive this after all?" you're read, correctly, that when liver failure becomes so severe that it causes the lungs or kidneys to fail, recovery is unlikely. If you are writing this from your home, and fairly comfortable, your kidneys have not failed. A sober, compliant diabetic's liver can heal and work well for him for decades. Be strong, man. ...Read more

If the liver enzymes are normal, it is most likely benign fat. However, if the liver enzymes are elevated, it means that there is inflammation in the liver which can lead to injury. Talk with your doctor about next steps. ...Read more

Distinguish hepatosteatosis (fatty liver) from NASH/steatohepatitis (fatty liver + abnormal liver tests that risks cirrhosis & liver cancer). ...Read more
