If I had a liver lac at age 8 is

Patient: If I had a liver lac at age 8 is it safe to drink at age 16? What effects could this have on my liver? Mainly will I die?

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.If you had liver lac at the age of 8, it is not safe to drink at the age of 16 or anytim e in life.Alcohol can damage liver cells and cause hepatitis, fatty infiltration, cancer and cirrhosis at later age and stage.If such problems arise, it can certainly make one die of the diseases.Hope this helps you.
