Hello everyone,

While Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease may be caused by other risk factors than the consumption alcohol (in fact, people who never have drinken alcohol can get it), excess alcohol consumption can lead to the diagnosis.

Did you drink alcohol prior to your diagnosis? Other than the consumption of alcohol, did you have other risk factors?

I did consume alcohol before receiving my diagnosis, but had stopped about 5 years before I actually received the diagnosis. I stopped for health reasons and because I becoming pre-diabetic. After that, I had maybe 1 glass of wine a week or every 2 weeks... there were months were I would drink nothing - it just kind of dependend on life and work.

Very rarely would I drink. Maybe twice a year I would actually drink enough to make me tipsy. Since my diagnosis has progressed I haven’t drank anything in about 6 months. I don’t want to cause anymore damage.

I have not drank since my diagnosis. I did drink some prior to my diagnosis, but I do not think enough for it to contribute to my condition, nor does my doctor. I drank maybe 5 times a year. Some years maybe a bit more, but I never got really drunk and only drank a bit when I did drink.

@lutoao   I never drank.  I got my diagnosis due to diabetes, type II.  I was really shocked to get the diagnosis.  Could this be inherited from a parent who drank?  I am curious.  If anyone knows please let me k now.
