Is It Bad To Drink Wine With Alcoholic Fatty Liver
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.
Potentially yes: Drinking leads to fatty liver, which is reversible once you stop drinking, if there is no scarring already. 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?
Watch for cirrhosis: Alcoholic hepatitis would be more the concern. Your liver is an amazing organ in that it has the ability to regenerate. However, organs have finite reserves and once you have cirrhosis, there are too many complications to mention. Seek help such as aa or tell a friend. Otherwise life will be short and full of medical complications at a young age. ...Read more
Fatty liver I have a fat liver and chronic pancreatitis, im so tired of being seen as alcoholic, I don't drink, what can be done about this stigma?
Is it ok to drink 2 glasses of wine/wk if you have fatty liver? Don't know how serious mine is, but docs don't think I need biopsy b/c normal levels
You could ask this: question to 10 different doctors and probably get at least 5 different answers. There would be no scientific study done that measures the effects of 2 glasses of wine per week vs. none. The point is to avoid liver toxins; alcohol is a common one. Two glasses a week isn't very much. One camp would say why do it if there is a chance it could hurt, even a little. Others, that much likely won't matter ...Read more

Lupus, fibro, gastroparesis, non alcholic fatty liver, diverticulosus/itis don't normally drink but I drank alot the other night and really sick since?
Need exam,blood test: I would suggest you have an exam, and perhaps a blood test of the liver enzymes to see if the liver is inflamed. Sometimes lupus can affect the pancreas as well, and this plus alcohol together would mean the pancreas blood test should be checked too. A good examination is important, and if you are having fever, dark urine, chalk colored stools or severe abdominal pain make sure you are seen soon. ...Read more
