    Yes, the organ, liver is very forgiving. It regenerates itself, and will give you many chances depending on your age, unless you abuse it over the limit.

    Hi

    ​Im sorry t say that being an alcoholic doesnt necessarily mean that you drink 24/7 it could mean any unt of times as alcohol affects different people for different reasons, i would suggest that you go to your G.P and ask for blood tests to check your Liver function and depending what they come back as i would ask to be refered to a liver specialist who are of course more qualified to be able to read the results and give you a more diffinitive answer. I have Liver failiure and have just been to my first assesment for transplant and whether im suitable, right from the start of my problems my local liver team have concluded that it is down to alcohol however on attending this 1st appointment for a possible transplant they have suggested that it may be non alcoholic fatty liver disease which is being checked with blood tests because although all along i have told them my mum had liver failiure they decided it was purley down to alcohol.

    ​Some may say what you drink is minimul but some would say you are drinking far to much its a case of your body bein tested correctly to determine if you have a problem, but be assured that either way they will tell you that you are drinking to much, i have not touched a drop of alcohol since about sept/oct 2015 and i need a transplant so cut it down or even out totally if you can because if there is a problem and it isnt to bad then your Liver may heal itself over time.

    Hope it goes well and im sorry i couldnt be of anymore help to you but good luck

      I appreciate your advice one more question if my numbers went back to normal after 1 1/2 month does it mean I am ok because if I have a bad liver my numbers should of stayed up correct?? I'm 34 yrs old very scary I did an ultrasound to be safe haven't received results

      I'm not really sure as I havnt really relied on those results as it seems different people have different ideas about numbers,there are lots of different things that constitute liver issues scar tissues etc, and just diluting alcohol with water is not a good option for getting better as lots of fluid to a liver pt can cause ascites, and bananas are not very bad for your liver as long as you don't eat lots of them because they are full of potassium and if your potassium raises your liver can overdose on it so its all dependant on blood tests to test for specific liver issues, so get a medic who is suitably qualified to look at your liver function as single issues do not always mean all is ok or not.

      Good luck and don't worry till you have something definitive to worry about

      I've just come on to this forum as I recently lost a close friend who died of liver failure through alcohol.

      My daughter in laws mother is currently suffering multi organ failure. From what I've read here and on the alcohol consumption forum, blood results can come back as normal, but that doesn't mean that alls ok. An abdominal ultrasound is far more accurate than blood tests.

      I think the 'diluting alcohol with water' comment was not meant to be taken seriously, just a light hearted off the cuff remark. Well, that's the way I took it..

      Hi,

      My LTF have been high for over a year now ((latest results below)

      ALP 231

      AST 206

      ALT 69

      GGT 1007

      LDH 356

      My doctor mentions my liver failing but when he referred me to the local hospital they classed me as a category 3 (being non-urgent). I have been tested and confirmed negative for the hepatitis's, also had an ultrasound which showed only an enlarged (fatty) liver but no fluid in the abdomen and no cirrhosis

      I am wondering if you would mind sharing the results/your levels at the time you were diagnosed as needing a transplant. I can't find anywhere on Google etc an indication of just how high is still "safe" so to speak.

      Thanks in advance.

      Whenever a doctor says "your liver is failing", this should be considered a serious matter.  Non-Urgent in a hospital setting means you are not in "immediate danger" as in today, and does not mean your condition is not serious. 

      If your condition is non alcoholic fatty liver disease, a referral to a dietitian would be wise.  Avoid ALL simple sugars, particularly soda's (high fructose corn syrup) until you can get comprehensive help.  

      Hope you can get to the bottom of what's going on soon!

      If it’s fatty liver.  Start taking care of yourself.  You should eliminate things like alcohol and sugars. Fatty liver can be reversed with time and resting the liver.
