Firstly let me congratulate the Trust and its membership for such an enlightening and supportive forum. My journey with alcohol started when I was fifteen, cider at parties led to my first bottle of Chianti then pubs and so on, fuelled by a West Of Scotland drinking culture. Roll on 30 years with alcohol as a prevalent part of life and one gets older, another 10 yrs culminates in an element of addiction ( 70 units per week ) then maybe more. July 2018 and a horrendous rash appears , bloods okay though raised GT @ 70, cut down to (40 units per week , cut down, really !) come across Trust forum , re -test August 2018 raised GT @ 60 , cut down to (14 units per week 5 of last 6 weeks) , getting there !
With another test this week I am just unsure about how much I need to know ?
My confusion is that should any tests come back within range I would still be concerned that such an intake has caused damage , but how much do I need to know ?
I have no other symptoms , I regularly have three or four alcohol free days and find other things to do, eat or drink. The Trust forum and its contributors have been pivotal in allowing me to understand liver related issues and have helped me address alcohol consumption and will continue to do so.
Maybe I will pop another note after the results come through , it may make more sense then.
Thanks for listening, but any comments would help crystallise my thoughts.
The forum and its contributors have been pivotal in my change of drinking habits and must be thanked wholeheartedly for this.
