 ALCOHOLIC LIVER DISEASE 

            Alcohol-related liver disease (ARLD) is caused by damage to the liver from years of excessive drinking. Years of alcohol abuse can cause the liver to become inflamed and swollen. This damage can also cause scarring known as cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is the final stage of liver disease.

Includes causes of death: Cirrhosis

SIGN AND SYMPTOM
                   The symptoms of ARLD depend on the stage of the disease. There are three stages:
  1. Alcoholic fatty liver disease: This is the first stage of ARLD, where fat starts to accumulate around the liver. It can be cured by not drinking alcohol anymore.
  2. Acute alcoholic hepatitis: Alcohol abuse causes inflammation (swelling) of the liver in this stage. The outcome depends on the severity of damage. In some cases, treatment can reverse the damage, while more severe cases of alcoholic hepatitis can lead to liver failure.
  3. Alcoholic cirrhosis: This is the most severe form of ARLD. At this point, the liver is scarred from alcohol abuse, and the damage cannot be undone. Cirrhosis can lead to liver failure.
  • nausea
  • loss of appetite
  • jaundice
  • fatigue
  • abdominal discomfort
  • increased thirst
  • swelling in the legs and abdomen
  • weight loss
  • darkening or lightening of the skin

  • dark bowel movements
  • fainting
  • unusual agitation

  • enlarged breasts [ in man]
RISK FACTOR
    *   you have a family history of ARLD
    *  you often drink heavily
    *  you binge drink
    *  you have poor nutrition

DIAGNOSIS
          * CBC
          * Liver function test 
          * CT scan 
          * Abdominal ultrasound
          * Liver biopsy test is confirmatory test.
  Liver Enzyme test 
                     - gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT)
                   - aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
                   - alanine aminotransferase (ALT)

TREATMENT OF LIVE DISEASE

ARLD treatment has two goals. The first is to help you stop drinking. This can prevent further liver damage and encourage healing. The second is to improve your liver health.

If you have ARLD, your doctor may recommend:

  • Alcoholic rehabilitation program: Programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous can help you stop drinking when you can’t stop on your own.
  • Multivitamins: B-complex vitamins are usually low in people who drink heavily. This deficiency can cause anemia or malnutrition.
  • Liver transplant: A transplant may be necessary if your liver is too scarred by cirrhosis to function properly.
  • Vitamin A supplements: Many people with ARLD are vitamin A-deficient.

It’s important to note that taking vitamin A and alcohol together can be deadly. Only people who have stopped drinking can take these supplements. Supplements will not cure liver disease, but they can prevent complications like malnutrition.

COMPLICATION 

  • permanent liver scarring and loss of function
  • bleeding esophageal varices (enlarged veins in the esophagus that develop in people who have liver disease)
  • high blood pressure in the blood vessels of the liver (portal hypertension)
  • a loss of brain function caused by the buildup of toxins in the blood (hepatic encephalopathy
