I trust hepatitis c and wilson's have been ruled out. The most common cause of fatty liver nowadays is lack of sufficient exercise for your body's genetic need. Why drink near-beer when you could be hitting the gym like a maniac? ...Read more

Is drinking 4-5 pints of beer once per month going to damage the liver badly? I enjoy it, better than every day / weekend right?

Depends: If there is a family history of alcohol problems, you're more at risk to drink too much. Ask your pcp if there's any reason for you to be concerned with your pattern of drinking. Liver function tests are a clue. Get checked if you're concerned. Also there are many self-tests online to see if you're drinking too much. Be careful mixing alcohol with any meds. Hope this helps. ...Read more
