Customer Question

My husband has been a heavy drinker for years. He has recently lost a lot of weight without trying , he has an intermittent itchy rash, loss of appetite and very puffy bags around his eyes. He has always denied a drink problem but he must realise that there is something wrong because he has reduced alcohol over last few days. What could be wrong?

He could have alcoholic liver cirrhosis or liver cancer. He should see a GI doctor to have an exam and imaging studies such as ultrasound and CT.
