Alcoholic Hepatitis

hello does anyone know if alcoholic hepatitis is reversible or will it lead to cirrhosis even if the person stops drinking????

Re: Alcoholic Hepatitis

It depends on how much damage you have done, regardless, you can often halt (and sometimes even reverse) this damage but stopping alcohol NOW. Drink tons of green tea, pure or spring water, and taking Milk Thistle (in my humble opinion) is certainly helpful. I myself had toxic hepatitis from taking pain medications with the occasional drink, and when I discontinued both, my enzymes returned to normal. Best of luck to you.
