Liver diseases caused by excess alcohol can be cured if diagnosed early

The risk of the disease increases when people drink more than the recommended limit per week: seven drinks for women, and 14 for men. In the case of women, the way they metabolize alcohol is different, which increases the risk of liver disease if consumed in the same amount as men.

Cirrhosis takes years or even decades to develop, and is more common in older people. Although it is currently possible to find cirrhosis or hepatitis associated with alcohol, in younger people. Some metabolic conditions, such as obesity, diabetes or hypertension, can also damage the liver, which is why treatment is recommended in these cases as well.

As there are no symptoms in the early stages of alcohol-related liver disease, identification is difficult. Therefore, tests may be performed as part of routine metabolic screening, or a doctor may recommend them if they are concerned about a patient's alcohol consumption. If someone's liver enzyme levels are abnormal, an ultrasound or MRI can determine what stage the disease is at.

Liver regeneration

The first two earliest stages of liver disease can be reversed if the patient cuts out alcohol. To help with treatment, some clinics offer help in cases of alcohol abuse disorder. This multidisciplinary treatment includes therapy with psychologists and psychiatrists, support group programs, or even medications to reduce impulses, such as anxiolytics and antidepressants. If people stop drinking, the risk of dying from the disease in the next year decreases significantly.
