Q:
What is alcoholic liver cirrhosis?

A:
The alcoholic liver cirrhosis is a branch of the degenerative liver disease, liver cirrhosis, and is mainly caused by abuse of alcohols. The scientists have already proved the link of heavy drinking habits with alcoholic liver cirrhosis.

If you have such a habit, you should pay attention to the following symptoms:

  • abnormal losses of weight
  • easier occurrence of bleeding and bruising
  • swelling in legs
  • fluid accumulation in abdomen
  • nausea or loss of appetite
  • rarely but possible, right-resided heart aches

The liver cirrhosis will appear on men aged 40 to 60 and heavy drinkers may suffer in at a younger age. For women, the possibility may decrease due to their losing of iron monthly.

Consult your doctors if you drink frequently and heavily even if you feel healthy since once the symptoms appear, it may be too late.
