Hello

You need a doctors attention right now.

Alcoholic hepatitis.

The only way to reverse it is no alcohol, ever.

Good diet.

And your doctors help with medications and to monitor you off medication.

See a doctor now, today, this can be dangerous.

I think it likely to be alcohol related as I look a little yellow too, so if it it this and lfts were normal lst October this can be reversible and wont lead to cirrhosis if I stop drinking??
thanks again
good prognosis?

Yes.

but you can go through acute problems.

So see a doctor.

Go to the ER if you have to.
