According to media reports, alcoholic liver disease, also referred to as steatotic liver disease, occurs when fat accumulates in the liver to levels detrimental to its function, compromising tasks such as blood purification.

Researchers from the Summit Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles analyzed U.S. government health data spanning the 1980s and 1990s, involving over 10,000 adults who underwent liver scans and other medical assessments.

Dr. Susan Cheng, the lead author of the study, highlighted the significant adverse health implications of liver damage. Furthermore, the research underscores that the disease poses an even graver threat to women who consume alcohol compared to men.

The findings of this study have been published in the journal Hepatology.
