Alcoholic liver disease can progress and lead to serious liver damage, which can become irreversible. However, if the disease is detected early and the person stops drinking alcohol, the liver can repair itself to some extent. This process is known as liver regeneration. But if the liver has already sustained significant damage, it may not be able to fully recover. In some cases, a liver transplant may be necessary. Therefore, it is important for individuals who consume alcohol to do so in moderation, and for those who are diagnosed with alcoholic liver disease to stop drinking alcohol completely and seek medical attention.
