Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is a range of conditions that occur due to the excessive consumption of alcohol over an extended period. It can cause damage to the liver and negatively impact its functioning. An enlarged or damaged liver may produce pain or discomfort in the right upper region of the abdomen, but it may also be completely symptomless.
In addition to the above, Alcoholic hepatitis is another kind of ALD that leads to liver inflammation that can result in nausea, vomiting, fever, abdominal pain, and jaundice.
The riskiest ALD is alcoholic cirrhosis, a dangerous illness that results in the liver developing scar tissue. Cirrhosis can cause ascites, or an enormous buildup of fluid in the abdomen, high liver blood pressure, haemorrhage, an enlarged spleen, disorientation, and probably liver failure in addition to symptoms that are similar to those of hepatitis. Alcoholic cirrhosis can develop from alcoholic hepatitis over time.
