Customer Question

I drink too much alcohol. Like 4 days a week upto a pint of vodka. So 1 day I passed out and was admitTed to the hospital. My ALT was 152 andy AST was 133. Then I refrained for almost 15 days and started the same. I passed out again and was brought to the hospital. This time within less than a month of the last visit my ALT WAS 214 and my AST was 307. My doctor did an ultrasound and of course said I have fatty liver and I can never drink again in my life. My concern is can it be reversed? and I don't drink alcohol for about 5 years or so maintaining a healthy liver diet that I can start drinking very moderately only at social parties or so. I know it sounds absurd. But if you answer that would be great.

you can't even drink moderately only at parties.

you have to avoid alcohol completely

you have shown you have no control over your alcohol use and over use.

you need to seek professional medical help for your repeated alcohol use.

you should joint a support group like AA to help you psychologically stop drinking.

you can slowly change and improve your liver by 100% stopping alcohol.
