What is Alcoholic Hepatitis?

Alcoholic hepatitis is when the liver swells after many years of abuse. The link between alcohol and hepatitis in complex… some people who drink heavily will never suffer from it and the condition can appear in those who only drink moderate amounts of alcohol.

What are the Symptoms of Alcoholic Hepatitis?

The first symptom to look out for is yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes….

Other symptoms include:

  • Heavy fluid retention
  • Confusion
  • Liver and Kidney failure
  • Tender abdominal region
  • Weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea

Treatment for Alcoholic Hepatitis

Treatment for alcoholic hepatitis means stopping drinking alcohol immediately. You may also need treatment for malnutrition, liver inflammation, and maybe even a liver transplant.

Outlook

The outlook will depend on the amount of damage that’s been already done and the severity of the symptoms. You need to stop drinking. The outlook is very good for someone who is not showing severe symptoms. If you don’t stop drinking the condition can worsen, lead to more damage including coma and brain damage.
