How much alcohol would i need to drink in order to get fatty liver disease?
i read i can get fatty liver disease from drinking alcohol so now i am afraid to go out with friends and drink. when i go out i drink until i get tipsy. Usually it is a shot of vodka and two mugs of beer. This happens once or twice a month.

It depends on the person . No one can give an accurate answer in here.

Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol over a long period of time can cause fatty liver (so can other things).
You ask, “how much alcohol?”. It's not like that. The liver is at risk of alcohol-related problems because it's the liver that metabolises alcohol. If it's asked to process either frequent high amounts of alcohol or more reasonable amounts virtually every day then there is a food chance that after a fairly long period of time, it will have problems.
There really isn't a set amount of alcohol that causes a particular disease. All anybody can say is excessive amounts of alcohol, frequently, over long periods of time. After that, it's down to your own common sense.
