What are the first signs of liver disease from drinking?

Most common: none.

Abnormal_liver_tests
the liver is most regenerative organ in the body, which means it can take a beating for years, and remains fully able to do its work of digestion, metablism, detoxifying. "Early" sx of alcoholic liver disease may be fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, jaundice, dark urine, pale stool, ascites (fluid in abdomen), itchy skin. unfortunately, it's likely already in an advanced stage. STOP, NOW!

What happens if a person starts drinking again after he has a liver transplant?

Inviting problems

Liver_lobule
Your new liver will be damaged just like your first liver. Alcohol also interacts with a wide variety of other medications which can result in serious toxicity. If you are getting intoxicated, you are more likely to forget to take your immunosuppression medications, and more likely to miss your doctor's appointments, and more likely to engage in other high risk behaviors. Just don't drink!

Dr. ROBERT Uyeda answered:

How long after heavy alcohol drinking can they get liver disease and what are warning signs?

Depends on

Alcohol_use
how much alcohol per year and what other damage the liver has sustained. First sign is abnormal liver function tests in blood. By the time you get symptoms, liver damage would be advance. If you suspect you have liver damage, get a blood test at your doctor's office.

Will liver failure or liver disease shrink your testicles even if I stop drinking if so what are the symptoms for that disease?

See below

No_alcoholic_beverages
the chronic drinking lowers testosterone levels & thus causes testes to shrink. Suggest AA & detox program to get off alcohol. Damage may be permanent, but perhaps testosterone replacement can help. Ask urologist/endocrinologist. But must stop drinking to prevent further damage & side effects.
