Alcohol-related fatty liver disease: Occurs in 90% of those who drink four units daily


Drinkaware states: “If you have established alcohol-related liver disease, it is essential that you stop drinking completely and permanently, to help prevent progression to even more serious disease.”

It notes: “Up to one in every five long-term heavy drinkers will develop alcohol-related liver cirrhosis.

“While cirrhosis is not reversible, there is good evidence that stopping drinking completely improves the outcome for some people.”

The NHS says as well as drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, other factors can increase your chances of developing ARLD, include being overweight or obese, being female, having a pre-existing liver condition, such as hepatitis C and genetics.
