I'm 32 year old male ...Ok so a drank 6-8 pints of beers 5% every single night after work for over a decade (12 years )
I'm sober now but I'm determined to turn my life around as it started to affect the family life.(sorry if you've already read this in previous post) I've seen a doctor and told her all about my drinking she gave me the once over and said my liver felt normal and not enlarged. I had no other symptoms other than I pain that came and went in my side after a heavy drinking session and a couple of times before I gave up I would sometimes wake with a red puffy face that would go by lunch time if I had a few to many. (alarm bells stop drinking) I had I liver function tests and they came back as normal.
I'm sure I must have damaged my liver! Every single day with no breaks 10-16units more on Fridays how could I not have? I read that the Liver function test don't always show what's going on ... What do you think ? How bad is it likely to be damaged with those results ?ive never been hospitalized through drinking or had blackouts.i have never had a drink in the morning or in the day. when quitting I never had any withdraw symptoms except night sweats. 2-3 days.I did wright on an earlier post about pins and needles in my hands thinking this was a withdrawal symptom but after talking to a friend he told me it's down to a well known ingredient in the protein shake I was taking (beta alanine) and that many people get pins and needles from taking the supplement. when I quit alchole I took up running the same day and started drinking it.
what should I take to try and repair my liver? I'm currently eating lots of veg,fruit, lots of antioxidants ,drinking 3 cups of green tea instead of coffe I've cut out fatty fried food and started running.
What is the best thing to take to repair the liver? I'm currently taking.
.Turmeric and artichoke food supplement pill
.Milk Thistle pill
.A multi vitamin pill
.cod liver oil pill
. Omega 3 pill
. Herbal garlic pill
Do you think I'm over taking? As I don't want to damage my liver even more than I'm sure it is. Can anybody advise a good blend of vitamins and food supplements to take with a balanced diet to improve liver function and help repair the liver ? What do you take ?
