Hi everyone im new to this. I have fatty liver doc dnt seem t be concerned i can never get a definite answer so always turn to mr google lol. Spoke to 4 diff docs and several diff answers. If there was 1 right answer then they would all say the same thing. All i want to know is how long not to drink so my liver sheds the excess fat and returns to normal. I know fat in ur liver is normal but if its more that 5-10% then its classed as fatty liver which mine must be. They did say its not bad tho. So must be mild. If i drink i drink a lot can drink a bottle vodka and still feel fine but since they told me i have not stopped thinking about it and im always on the net looking for answers i want to be able to drink because i enjoy a drink lol but not too much cos i dont wana put myself at risk of cirrhosis. I am NOT an alcoholic just to be clear. I am 27 single mum of 3. White english. I have read on drinkaware and nhs site that if u abstain from alcohol 4 for 2 weeks then ur liver should return to normal and start shedding the excess. If u continue to drink after the 2wk then must be within guidlines so it gives ur liver the chance of recovering. So i did just that i didnt drink anything for 2weeks and then had a little drink but was around 15 units in the week but at one time. Stopped again for 2 weeks and drank few more times. Im just wondering if the fat has got worse if iv stopped for 2 week a few times. I use to drink around 40 units a week nw only 15 so i have cut down a lot only drink once every few week. Im gonna ask for another scan to see if the fat has changed. Also my liver function tests etc all normal.
