Would 2 nights of heavy drinking cause an enlarged spleen? If the liver is perfectly healthy? If so would it go back to normal not drinking alcohol?

Would 2 nights of heavy drinking cause an enlarged spleen? If the liver is perfectly healthy? If so would it go back to normal not drinking alcohol?

No: and am not sure how you know your spleen is enlarged. If you had some kind of scan or ultrasound, you need to be asking the doctor who ordered that test. The spleen does not enlarge in alcohol-related disease until the liver is very very sick (cirrhosis). Many things can cause splenic enlargement, and only your physician can figure it out with full history, examination and appropriate tests. ...Read more

How long does it take for liver enzyme levels to go back to normal after taking 1 dose of azithromycin  (4x250mg)?

That said it is rare and an eval for other reasons for the abnl LFTs is needed, especially since the dose you took is usually for STDs and some of these also cause abn LFT's. Need a full work up. ...Read more

My dr wants to run a liver test again because it came back with a 6, normal range was 7. What could a lower level mean? He didn't tell me what it was

Normal Is Just AWord: Depends on what that specific test is, the accuracy of that lab's test, what your problem(if any)is and where in its course you are or if it's just a screening test and if a lower than normal number means anything(to your doctor or within reason, not necessarily related).It may be so important to your doctor that a repeat is necessary to make sure. But in general a level within normal is "Normal" ...Read more

When after you stop drinking does it take the liver to get back to normal?

Liver is a remarkabl: Liver is remarkable organ and does regenerate and recover from many insults and does so fairly quickly at least if it is not damaged severely already. Acute hepatitis is usually reversible but chronic hepatitis is not fully reversible. Liver starts getting better within a few weeks after stopping alcohol use and can recover fully in 2 months to 6 months. ...Read more
