how long does acute alcohol hepatitis last? I had liver discomfort wen I quit drinkin.Bloods taken 2weeks after I quit. Normal. How likely I had it?
Complex, no reliable: simple answer. Hepatitis is a catch-all term meaning liver inflammation. Alcohol, viral infections & fat storage from high carb intake are all drivers, yet most damage missed until severe enough, long enough. If very healthy, liver can regenerate from as much as 90% loss within 3-4 months, yet many variables. On lab, look for albumen high normal (e.g.) >4.5 mg/dL, bilirubin low & 3 enzymes low. ...Read more

Even at that level, some people will get liver inflammation. Liver enzymes (ALT, AST) are very sensitive to inflammation and will generally be elevated. ...Read more

Blood disorders .What conditions cuase blood to be thin, genteic/disease.Is it liver, bones?Alcohol Intolerant,always have been.what test is needed?
Too general: This would take a textbook to answer. Dozens of common genetic diseases make blood less prone to clot; and there are hundreds of causes of anemia alone. You're fortunate that alcohol does not agree with you, but this is unconnected. If you've been told you have "thin blood", demand a scientific diagnosis. Best wishes. ...Read more
