My gp thinks i have acid reflux and i am waiting for an endoscopy. I had a drink on saturday and i was up all night feeling sick and being sick. I have a constant pain in my upper right of my back. Is it typical of acid reflux to be ill with alcohol?

    Check out 'fatty liver' ; the liver can be affected fairly easily..

    whichi in turn can turn gallbladers into raging furnace that destroy the bowel.. so ; try and do a liver de-tox and start eating anti-oxidants as a 'must do'.. liver tonics may work as well.

      Hi dianne; i understand;

      Blood tests. During routine blood tests, elevations in certain liver enzymes [u]may [/u]show up. These might include alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST).Imaging studies. A fatty liver [u]may [/u]also show up on imaging tests, such as an abdominal ultrasound. ..Liver biopsy. The only way to confirm a diagnosis of fatty liver disease is with a liver biopsy.[u] This is usually done once other causes have been ruled out[/u]. After application of local anesthesia, the doctor inserts a needle through the skin to remove a tiny piece of liver. This is then examined under a microscope for signs of fat, inflammation, and damaged liver cells. If inflammation or damage is not present, the diagnosis is simply a fatty liver
