Please help - ALD scare
Please can anyone help.  I am really scared I have alcoholic liver disease,

I am 32 years and female and I drank heavily for 10 years. (have stopped now)

I have been experiencing symptoms over the last 2 years including:

* Nausea  
* Some right side abdominal pain (gone)
* Burning and red palms (recent symptom)
* Swollen breasts (could this be linked to increased Oestrogen?)
* Terry's Nails (I think)

I have had over 15 LFT tests, an MRI, an Ultrasound scan and all have come back completely normal.
My LFT tests and enzymes have not changed value much in the last 5 years and are all in the normal range.

However, I have just read about the AST/ALT ratio.  My ALT is always lower than my AST including 14/20, 14/21 and 13/23.  I have a high MCV - 97.

I have also have High ASO Titre (which I believe can be a false positive with liver disease).

Do you think I could have alcoholic liver disease? Should I have a Biopsy?

Many thanks,
