Hallo Pierre
3-4 glasses of red wine is about 9 units of alcohol per day which is much over the recommended limit of 2-3 units per day for women. Early liver damage is not visible physically but will show up on blood tests and liver sonar (fatty liver, developing into liver inflammation, ending up as cirrhosis or permanent damage) see also http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/diseases/facts/alcliver.htm
