Can you reverse kidney damage from alcohol?

In some cases, the damage caused to your kidneys and other parts of your body by alcohol abuse can be reversed, as long as it is caught early. If you've been abusing alcohol heavily for many years, it may not be possible to reverse some of the negative effects. This is the main reason why it's so important to treat alcohol use disorder as soon as it starts becoming a problem.

When you treat alcohol use disorder as early as possible, you'll experience negation of many of the harmful side effects within the first year of quitting, and then further healing in the years following that.
