Recently diagnosed with Alcoholic Fatty Liver, sharing my story.
Just thought as I have just joined up, I would introduce myself. I have just been diagnosed with Fatty Liver from alcohol use. To be honest, I knew what was coming after feeling unwell back in November, the scan confirmed fatty liver plus fat damage evident in the pancreas.
Whilst I didn't class myself as alcoholic, I reckon I was alcohol dependant drinking 6 days a week. I have always drunk too much from 18 upwards so I suppose this was going to happen.
I gave up drinking from the last week in November until just before Christmas and then had a few drinks over Christmas but have started with non alcoholic beers such as Becks Blue and Bavaria and really am getting quite accustomed to the taste. I am realising I don't need alcohol.
The doctor (whom I trust) says I should drink no more than 7 units of alcohol a week, I am probably going to stay off booze for a while if not forever. Interested to know other peoples experiences and advice particularly from the Doctor regarding continuing drinking. also, what can I expect now in terms of follow up from the Docs?
