Hi everyone, just to let you know that following my elevated EFL test, I had 3 tests to establish the health of my liver.
Minimal scarring and not fatty - bloods all ok - happy, however the consultant advised me to stop drinking for at least 6 months. I reckon that will be tough (I know that sounds dumb) but he said it’s better that I am in control and can do something about it (same advise many of you gave me :). After 6 months, continue to stop or significantly reduce.
So although I am on the low end of the scale, I’ve been very fortunate and had a warning & have had lots of good advice - it’s all currently within my control.
Longest I have ever gone without alcohol is 6weeks, but determine as there is no evidence that excessive drinking ever did anything good for us!
Good luck to everyone on their journey too
