My husband is an alcoholic and his doc told him that he suspected he had fatty liver but it could be worse. Only way to know for sure was to do a biopsy or stop drinking for one month and be retested. That was six months ago and my husband is in total denial and hasn't stopped drinking or seen his doc again.
Six weeks ago, he broke out in what only can be described as bloody ulcers or small open wounds all over his abdominal area, arms, and legs. They scab over and then bleed chronically and never go away. He refuses to see a doc. (Never mind how much this is all making me crazy.) They sometimes itch and are sometimes painful, he says. It is not contagious as no one else in the family has anything like this.
Anyway..the other symptom is that he has a big, round stomach but looks fairly normal everywhere else. He has been eating late at night, which can make one gain weight, but I cannot tell if this is related to possible liver disease or just regular weight gain. How can you tell if it is fluid or just a fat belly from over-eating?
My main question here, however, is the skin symptom. I'm wondering if anyone has seen this symptom in relation to liver problems.
Thank you in advance.
