Can you drink beer if you have fatty liver?

Can you drink beer if you have fatty liver?

No: Fatty liver can be caused by alcohol consumption. Non- alcoholic fatty liver disease is a result of obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol and in some patients genetic propensity. The safety of alcohol consumption in those with nafld ( non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) will depend on the extent of existing liver damage. Liver damage can be determined by a liver biopsy. ...Read more

After alcoholic fatty liver reverses, is drinking actually dangerous? I don't see myself never having beers with the guys or wine with my wife.

After alcoholic fatty liver reverses, is drinking actually dangerous? I don't see myself never having beers with the guys or wine with my wife.

For you to know if there is scarring in the liver you would need a liver biopsy. Alcoholic fatty liver can then turn into cirrhosis, which is non-reversible. You can probably get away with a drink every now and then, but nothing on a daily / regular basis. ...Read more

Is it possible to have alcoholic fatty liver at age of 19, drinking since 2 years large amounts (4 liters of beer/0.3-0.5l of vodka) once a week?

Is it possible for me to drink near beers with a fatty liver?

Is it possible for me to drink near beers with a fatty liver?

Go ahead: The fact that you're willing to drink only minimally-alcoholic drinks tells me that you're not a problem drinker and that your fatty liver may have a different cause. 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
