Answer:

Hi Cornelia,

Here is Dr. Lamb’s response:

While regurgitation can be seen with liver disease, regurgitation can happen for many other reasons. Behavioral causes are often the more common cause for regurgitation though. I would recommend having some blood work done to see if he does have liver problems or not.
