I'm new to blogging and new to this website, so please bear with me!
I was diagnosed 2 years ago with having an abnormal liver function which by my own admission was caused by excess alcohol. I reduced my alcohol consumption significantly, but then last year it gradually started to increase again. I have had further tests and the levels have increased and I've been warned that unless I take action now and either stop drinking or reduce it to the Government guidelines that I will have irreversible liver disease in the very near future.
My health is never brilliant, I am always getting infections, colds and tummy bugs. I have IBS and PCOS which doesnt help and I have to take anti depressants to help me with my depression and hormone inbalance.
What has concerned me is why I have had to have a flu and pneumonia vaccination (I did have pnuemonia last year) - My GP just said it was because of my liver problem. Can anyone tell me why that is? Also, how long it will take for my liver to repair itself after cutting down alcohol levels? Can it stop you from losing weight?
Any help would be grately appreciated.
