Alcohol induced fatty liver query
I've been drinking over the last fiew years more than i should, a bottle of wine, maybe a fiew shots & 2 beers per night!
Mainly to self medicate my anxiety & other lonlyness issues.
I had a 'stitch' feeling some months ago, visited my do, had a Liver function test & all came back ok. ALT, AST, GGT.
The stitch got worse, especially during running & cycling & had another LFT & this time they leaft out GGT & all came back ok, but doc sent me for ultrasound just in case!
I have found out that there is an irregularity in that there is traces of excess fat in my liver & i'm worried & am going to cut down my intake of alcohol, even though me cutting down is still over the safe units.
How near is fatty liver to becoming life threatening or hepatitis, cirrhosis, fibrosis etc.
I was told that raised GGT is what we all get when we have a drink, even if not a regular drinker! Is a faty liver, just raised GGT?
I'm worried & anxious & hope someone can help
