I have been suffering from jaundice for the past three months. I am feeling fatigued. I have been drinking about 150 mL whisky every day for the past 9 years. But, I did not drink anything in the last three months. I tested for bilirubin, serum, hemoglobin. My liver shrank in size and the spleen is enlarged. My bilirubin 4.20, albumin 2.81, AST 49, ALT 12 and hemoglobin 9.30. Both hepatitis B and C are non-reactive. Kidney and pancreas are normal in size. The doctor suggested for endoscopy. Please suggest the diet and precautions. Is the liver condition reversible?
