How to Treat Alcohol Related Liver Disease?

Medical Treatment:
  • Treatment for ARLD involves stopping drinking alcohol. This is abstinence, which can be vital, depending on what stage the condition is at.
  • If you suffer from fatty liver disease, if you abstain from alcohol for at least 2 weeks, the damage may be reversed. Lifelong abstinence is recommended if you have a more serious form of ARLD (alcoholic hepatitis or cirrhosis).
  • This is because stopping drinking is the only way to preventing your liver damage from getting worse and potentially stopping you from liver disease dying.
  • It is not easy to stop drinking, especially as an estimated 70 percent of people with ARLD have a problem with alcohol dependence.
  • Nevertheless, if you have alcohol-related cirrhosis or alcoholic hepatitis and do not stop drinking, no medical or surgical treatment can prevent liver failure.
