Is it possible to get cirrhosis of liver from one glass of wine :(

Posted , 5 users are following.

I had one glass of slightly off red wine on Saturday night and have been having slight liver pains and tiredness (?) for the past few days. It was the first time I have ever had alcohol except for once last year.

Has anybody ever had cirrhosis of the liver under such circumstances? I am 16 years old and a hypochondriac

    Your not gonna get cirrhosis of the liver at 16 years old and you deff wouldn't get cirrhosis from one glass of wine.

    Don't Google your symptoms. It's the worse thing you can do if you have health anxiety. Also stsy away from booze. Your to young 😄

    Very doubtful it can be caused by one glass of wine. It takes years of abuse but that's no reason to start early. Learn your lesson and don't drink. Some people can get away with it, others can't. Drinking can cause loads of other issues apart from cirrhosis so just abstain.

     No.  Cirrhosis of the liver occurs after many years of over-indulging in alcohol.  Your liver processes the alcohol every time you drink, but over time the liver cannot repair itself from the damage caused by alcohol and your liver gradually fails.  Cirrhosis of the liver has different stages and once you have it, you can no longer repair your liver.  I think it's great that you are already concerned about how much you are drinking.  Be responsible and drink sparingly, if at all.  I don't know what is causing your pain and tiredness, but it's not that.
