Dr. Stuart Wasser answered:

How do i know if I have chronic liver disease and cirrhosis?

Are you sick?

Scarring
Cirrhosis (liver scarring) and chronic liver disease may exist, even if the underlying disease (like alcohol use) is over. In this case, the presence of old disease is less important than the risk of progressive disease. Liver tests, viral counts, bipsies etc all help evaluate this risk. Test of current liver function (like albumin and bleeding) are important to gauge current function

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

How and why is there an increase in urobilinogen levels in hepatocellular dysfunctions like alcoholic liver disease, cirrhosis and malignancy of liver?

Tricky concept

Liver
Urobilinogen is actually generated from the pigment in the feces and diffuses back into the bloodstream. Normally the liver removes it and puts it back in the gut. If the liver's not working hard enough, some will end up in the urine. It's a helpful bit of information.

If you have cirrhosis or liver disease, can your enzymes go back to normal levels?

Sometimes

Transplant
It depends how bad the cirrhosis is. The liver is one of the body's best organs at regenerating. Also, a liver transplant can sometimes restore normal function.

Is stag 1 cirrhosis of the liver (due to alcohol) considered cancer. My MELD (model for end stage liver disease) score is 9-10 according to my doctor?

No

Cirrhosis_(liver)
Cirrhosis is not cancer. It is considered an end-stage fibrotic (scarring) process of liver following injury due to a variety of causes (alcohol, hepatitis C or B, biliary disease and a few other less common causes. It does put you at risk though of getting liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma). I am confused though by what you state: Do you have stage 1 fibrosis or stage 4 (cirrhosis)?
