Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    I have a fatty liver, is it possible to cure it without taking medicines?
    I also have a high cholesterol and sgpt level but negative on my hepatitis test, is apple cider vinegar can cure fatty liver?

    • ANSWER:
      I would be very careful now that you have high
      elevated liver enzyme scores. People don't
      realize how fast cures and overdosing on anyone
      thing can actually harm the liver instead of helping it. Most liver patients are told never to
      take any medication without speaking with their
      doctor first about it, this includes herbs,
      over the counter and prescription drugs and
      street drugs. The liver can also be affected
      if you are in contact with certain chemicals,
      or develop a virus, etc. Anything taken as
      an overdose is especially harmful.

      There are two types of fatty livers, one that
      is because of alcohol intake and the other one
      that is not. This article has on here what you
      can do to reverse this problem before it turns
      into something more serious that can never
      be reversed.

      http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/nonalcoholic-fatty-liver-disease/DS00577/DSECTION=8

      It is best to stick with good medical sites in
      order to find the information the doctor uses
      and the Mayo clinic is one of them.

      Here is another good site that will show you
      what will happen if the disease progresses and
      more information about what can be done.
      This is a government site:
      http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/nash/

      This site contains the same information as
      those above, except it shows you what a
      normal liver looks like and what a fatty liver
      looks like and is written by a doctor.

  2. QUESTION:
    How to cure fatty liver without medicine? what food intake or any other activity or home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      The most effective way to cleanse the liver is to consume green leafy vegetables on a daily basis along with a healthy, low fat, high fiber diet. Walking done at least 20 minutes a day, also helps the liver release toxins and remove excess fatty deposits in the body.

      There are some medicinal drinks that are included in the macrobiotic lifestyle which help to heal the liver and reduce internal fat deposits around the vital organs, of which the liver is one. For these drinks to be beneficial, you would need to follow a vegetarian diet, as meat and cheese as well as high fat consumption interferes with the body's natural ability to heal itself.

      The drink itself is included in Michio Kushi's book, The Macrobiotic Way. It consists of one tablespoon of finely grated carrot, one tablespoon of finely grated Daikon radish (a long white Japanese radish), 1/4 sheet of organic Nori, (the seaweed that they use in making sushi) and 12oz. of cold water. Grate the radish and carrot into a small pan large enough to hold the water. Tear up Nori into small pieces, add a few drops of Shoyu Soy Sauce for flavor. Bring to gentle rolling boil and turn off, letting the vegetables sit and steep in the water for 5-7 minutes. Pour into a cup and drink the liquid and eat the vegetables by chewing them well. Chewing your food thoroughly is an important process in helping to eliminate waste by making digestion easier. This should be done in the evening, before bed. It's rather like a vegetable soup in flavor.

      Milk Thistle is also a way to help the liver cleanse itself. You can purchase these capsules from any health food store. Follow the directions on the label. If you are allergic to the dandelion family, do not pursue this avenue of healing. When at all possible, try to buy organic vegetables, as there are no chemicals which make it more difficult for your body to cleanse itself. There's no reason to add more things for your body to deal with as it's trying to cleanse and heal.

      I hope this helps. Good luck on your way to health!

  3. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to treat or cure a fatty liver?
    In the past I drank a little too much and now have completely given it up because I am afraid for my health. I recently was told that I have a fatty liver. I wonder what kinds of things I can do in addition to abstaining from alchohol and excercising more in order to make myself more healthy.

    • ANSWER:
      The liver is the organ of the human body with the best regenerative capacity.

      If you stop injuring it (with alcohol and other drugs) it is likely to fix itself.

      The rest of your health should be all encompassing, if possible.

      Stop smoking.

      Stay in the healthy weight range

      Lower cholesterol and control other risk factors for your heart - blood pressure, diabetes ...

      Choose an exercise and diet strategy that you can stick to long term, rather than one that gives you your result and then you give it up straight away.

  6. QUESTION:
    WHat is the best way to cure a fatty liver fast?

    • ANSWER:
      chemicals cause a fatty liver, they make your liver slow and sluggish and tired clean up your diet #1 no aspartame, or acetaminophen ibuprofen ect no chlorine fluorine only bottled water, and simple low fat diet no junk, no alchohol

      tweety is rite prescription meds from your doc can also cause it, why do you think they always warn people with liver problems to talk to your doctor first before you take this new drug we are pushing, the problem is they are getting rich keeping people sick, and the side effects are normally worse than what they are treating, cholesterol medicine that destroys the liver, I think I will just choose the rite food and use vitamin c to keep my veins clear. and anything that slows the liver down, precisely prescription meds will make the liver fat and cause damage.

    • ANSWER:

  8. QUESTION:
    how to cure from fatty liver? (non alcholic), is there any way to reduce it in 4 months.?

    • ANSWER:
      Fatty liver can occur from different things. Some
      of the well known ones are:
      weight gain, obesity, fast weight loss, malnourishment,
      diabetes, insulin resistance, high cholesterol/triglyceride
      levels, pregnancy (third trimester), certain types of
      medications (like steriods), alcohol consumption,
      and other things.

      Once the cause is found, then things can be done
      to try and reverse it.

      It would be best...if this is from weight gain or obesity...
      to ask the doctor to refer you to either a dietitian or
      nutritionist. They will take into account all your medical
      problems and give you a diet based on that. It will
      be the best for you, since they will be sure you get all
      the vitamins and minerals, proteins from the foods you
      eat.

      This may be a temporary substitute diet:
      Remove all skins from the poultry you eat.
      Use only good oils like olive oil or canola oils.
      Try to bake, broil, boil your foods instead of fry them.
      Avoid preservative, prepackaged, or fast foods.
      Use fresh fruits and vegetables that you wash before
      eatting. Next in line would be frozen...avoid canned.
      Lessen the amount of milk, cheese in your diet...
      if this is because of cholesterol levels.

      This is what happens in fatty liver disease.
      The fat build up inside the liver. At first it may not
      cause any problem (simple fatty liver)..however,
      if it continues to build up, it causes pressure inside
      the liver. The liver is surrounded by a tight membrane
      capsule. The liver cells then can be damaged.
      The immune system of the body respond to this damage
      and then causes inflammation inside the liver.
      It is now known as Steatohepatitis (steato means fat,
      hepat means liver, and itis means inflammation).

      This is then more serious. If the problem cannot be
      reversed, it can proceed to where the liver cells die
      off and form scar tissue inside the liver and is then
      known as Cirrhosis of the liver.

      It is best to be with either a gastroenterologist or
      hepatologist now. He can direct you in the best
      treatment and diet that is available to help you.

  14. QUESTION:
    i have fatty liver how to cure it help needed?
    i have fatty liver

    • ANSWER:
      zainul - The only accurate way to know you have a fatty liver is by a needle biopsy and microscopic examination of the liver tissue by a pathologist physician looking through a microscope. If the liver feels enlarged when the belly is palpated by the doctor's hands, fatty liver is suspected but not always the case. Although the most common cause of fatty liver is alcohol consumption, it is not always the case. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a term used to describe the accumulation of fat in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is common and, for most people, causes no signs and symptoms and no complications. But in some people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, the fat that accumulates can cause inflammation and scarring in the liver. This more serious form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is sometimes called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. At its most severe, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can progress to liver failure. Probably the best physician to treat such a problem is one who specializes in either internal medicine (an internist) or a gastroenterologist.

  15. QUESTION:
    What is fatty liver, what is the cause and the cure?

    • ANSWER:
      Some individuals can develop fatty liver. Most people who do not abuse alcohol and have fatty liver are obese. Fatty liver is called steatosis, and fatty liver with liver inflammation is called or steatohepatitis. Steatosis and steatohepatitis can be caused by alcohol and other drugs and can also sometimes occur in patients with diabetes mellitus. Steatohepatitis notcaused by alcohol is sometimes referred to as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or "NASH." The factors that determine who will develop fatty liver are not known. Some mildly obese and occasional non-obese patients will develop fatty liver while some who are severely obese will not.
      Patients with fatty liver or steatohepatitis usually present to a physician with unexplained elevations in the serum aminotransferase activities. Serum alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase activities can also be elevated. The patient is usually 10% or more above his/her ideal body weight.

      The diagnosis is usually suspected after other causes of hepatitis are excluded. A careful drug and alcohol history should be taken and serological testing for HBsAg and antibodies against the hepatitis C virus should be performed. Metabolic diseases should be excluded by a careful family history and appropriate testing if they are suspected. Serum protein electrophoresis and testing for autoantibodies should be performed if autoimmune hepatitis is suspected. Sometimes, patients with fatty liver or steatohepatitis will have elevated serum trigyceride concentrations, however, this is not always the case.

      If a patient has elevations in serum aminotransferase activities for longer than six months, he/she should have a liver biopsy to make the diagnosis the fatty liver or steatohepatitis. Click to see a microscopic section of a NORMAL LIVER LOBULE and an example of FATTY LIVER (STEATOSIS).

      Steatohepatitis can progress to cirrhosis.
      Treatment (diet and exercise) may stop this progression. Steatosis and steatohepatitis will often improve with weight loss, preferably to near the patient's ideal body weight. Avoidance of alcohol and potentially hepatotoxic drugs may also be beneficial.

    Fatty liver how to cure?

  17. QUESTION:
    Once you have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, is it for life or is there a cure or reversal?

    Does it continue to progress over time eventually causing liver failure?

    • ANSWER:
      There are different stages of Non Alcoholic
      Fatty Liver disease. Some times people can
      have fat around the outside of the liver and
      it does not affect the function of the liver at
      all. Others have fat that builds up in between
      and in the cells of the liver and this causes a
      problem. Some people are placed on a diet,
      and this decreases the fat inside the liver and
      it can reverse and the liver can heal.
      Let me explain this clearer: The extra fat pushes
      on the insides of the cells and places them
      under stress. It is like going into a small room.
      You have plenty of room while you are in their
      yourself. Then others start to come in and as
      they continue to come it...you are backed up
      against the corner of it. Soon you are not able
      to move around, your cannot get nourishment,
      oxygen you need, and you will die unless you
      can get through...which is now almost
      impossible. That is what happens in the
      liver cell. The fat blocks the things the cell
      itself needs to exist and it also pushes the
      nucleus of the cell out of position. The cell
      becomes stressed, it can no longer function
      the way it once did and it can die. What makes
      it even worse on the cell...is when the cells
      are damaged, it signals the immune system
      to respond and that causes inflammation to
      develop in the liver also and even more, faster
      damage can happen then.

      Follow closely anything the doctor may tell
      you to do for your condition. Whether it
      be losing weight or taking medication for
      any inflammation that may develop or whatever
      causes the liver to be this way.
      If the condition can be reversed, he will see
      this on future blood work you may have done.
      Once the liver reaches the point that inflammation has progressed to the point that
      the cells of the liver die off...this can lead
      to an incurable disease known as cirrhosis
      of the liver. It is best to catch this early on
      so it can be reversed before getting to this
      point. Cirrhosis is scar tissue that forms in
      the liver because the cells start to die off.
      This scar tissue can block nourishment and
      oxygen from getting to the healthy cells and
      they can die also.

      So the answer to your question is that sometimes it can be completely reversed and
      other times it may progress onward depending
      on whether it is treated in time.

  18. QUESTION:
    what is fatty liver?how to cure?

    • ANSWER:
      Fatty liver is fat building up inside the liver (fat infiltration).
      It is a disease, caused by alcohol consumption,
      certain medications (like steriods), weight gain, obesity,
      fast weight loss, diabetes, insulin resistance, high
      cholesterol/triglyceride levels, sometimes occurs in
      pregnancy, having Hepatitis C, certain chemicals and
      other things.

      When the fat begins to build up in the liver, it may not cause
      a problem (Simple fatty liver)...however, as the fat continues
      to build up...it can damage the liver cells and cause the
      immune system of the body to respond to this damage and
      cause inflammation which leads to the liver enlarging in size.

      The cause has to be found and tried to be stopped, so the
      liver cells can heal. If not, it can lead to where the liver
      cells die off and form scar tissue inside the liver. This
      then becomes a irreversible, progressive disease known
      as Cirrhosis of the liver.

      Finding the cause and stopping it can reverse this problem.

  23. QUESTION:
    Did any body got cured from Fatty Liver Infilteration(NASH)?

    • ANSWER:
      Trials are presently being conducted to optimise treatment of NASH. No standard treatment has yet emerged as the "gold standard". General recommendations include improving metabolic risk factors and reducing alcohol intake.
      A large number of treatments have been studied for Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). While many may improve biochemical markers, such as alanine transaminase levels, most have not been shown to reverse the histological abnormalities or reduce clinical endpoints:
      * Weight loss: gradual weight loss, and possibly bariatric surgery, may improve the process in obese patients.
      * Insulin sensitisers (metformin and rosiglitazone but more markedly pioglitazone) have shown efficacy in some studies.
      * Antioxidants and ursodeoxycholic acid, as well as lipid-lowering drugs, have little benefit.

  24. QUESTION:
    Is there a herbal remedy for Fatty Liver disease?
    I have a very enlarged liver because of Non alcoholic fatty liver disease.I don't drink alcohol but I do take a lot of medications and have for many years.The medications are essential.I know I can't cure my liver but there must be something I could take to help my liver work and last longer.I am a 61 yr. old gal with lots of other health problems.Takeing another med for my liver seems to just add to the work it has to do.Is there something that is good for it and it would apppreciate a little help.I am not overweight and try to stay active but sometimes my abdomen is very sore and bloated to the point that I can't where anything around my middle so I were dresses all the time.Unfortunately my tummy looks like I am 7 months pregnant.I just got this diagnosis from a recent ultra sound which also revealed many large fibroids in my uterus.I can get those taken care of surgically but a liver transplant is something I what to avoid as long as possible.Any sugesstions would be appreciated and I will consult a doctor before trying anything.I just feel I should do a little research on my own..Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      well, your liver is what makes fat for your body. if you have a lazy liver, then instead of moving that fat out of your liver and into your butt or legs, your liver deposits the fat within itself. so, its a lazy liver.

      since this may be your problem, think of your liver like an extra butt. the best way to lose weight from your butt is to excerise, eat healthy, and SLOWLY lose weight. if you lose weight slowly, the weight (or fat) will come off your liver. if you lose weight rapidly, you actually end up making the matter worse as the liver does the opposite of what you want.

      i know that what ive said is bizarre. you need to see a hepatologist (or GI physician if in the U.S.) and have this explained to you in a matter that may make more sense....as i dont know your preferred learning style.

      basically, eat healthy and exercise in order to lose weight. that should help your fatty liver out!

      best wishes.

Steatohepatitis notcaused by alcohol is sometimes referred to as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or "NASH." The factors that determine who will develop fatty liver are not known. Some mildly obese and occasional non-obese patients will develop fatty liver while some who are severely obese will not.
      Patients with fatty liver or steatohepatitis usually present to a physician with unexplained elevations in the serum aminotransferase activities. Serum alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase activities can also be elevated. The patient is usually 10% or more above his/her ideal body weight.

      The diagnosis is usually suspected after other causes of hepatitis are excluded. A careful drug and alcohol history should be taken and serological testing for HBsAg and antibodies against the hepatitis C virus should be performed. Metabolic diseases should be excluded by a careful family history and appropriate testing if they are suspected. Serum protein electrophoresis and testing for autoantibodies should be performed if autoimmune hepatitis is suspected. Sometimes, patients with fatty liver or steatohepatitis will have elevated serum trigyceride concentrations, however, this is not always the case.

  32. QUESTION:
    Is a disease called "fatty liver" dangerous?
    My friend whos about 48yrs is suffering from a disease called FATTY LIVER is this dangerous? Is there any cure for this condition?

    • ANSWER:
      There are two types of fatty liver disease,
      those called non-alcoholic fatty liver (NASH) and
      alcoholic fatty liver. Both can become
      dangerous if the cause of the disease is not
      stopped and reversed. Some people develop
      this because of high triglycerides, fats in
      the liver. This can come from the food they
      eat or be a hereditary condition, and these
      people are usually overweight. The other
      one is caused because the alcohol, they
      consume, interferes with the metabolism of
      the fats. Going on a special diet or stopping
      the drinking of alcohol can reverse the
      disease and the liver can heal.

      If they do not follow the instructions they
      are given, like those above, and they continue
      to eat wrong or drink alcohol, it could lead
      to a very dangerous situation for them.
      The cells of the liver will start to die, this
      is known as cirrhosis. Once they start to
      die, there is no reversing this disease.
      The reason is because where the cells die
      they form scar tissue inside the liver. This
      scar tissue prevents the other healthy liver
      cells from obtaining nourishment and oxygen
      they need to function and they die also.
      It is a continual cycle after that. The only
      thing that can be done is to try to slow the
      cirrhosis down until the patient has a liver
      transplant. It is much better for the patient to
      follow the doctors instructions and do what
      ever is necessary to heal the liver from the
      inflammation that develops than to face that.
      A liver transplant can cost anywhere from
      0,000 and higher. Then the patient is
      also forced to be with medical doctors the
      rest of their life. This surgery isn't just
      performed on anyone...there is a shortage of
      organs and the patient has to go through an
      evaluation process to be placed on a very long
      waiting list and wait until an organ becomes
      available for them or they can die while on
      the list if the cirrhosis keeps progressing or they
      become too sick to withstand a 7 to 14 hour
      surgery.

  33. QUESTION:
    Fatty Liver?
    What is meant by fatty Liver ? Is this a serious health condition ? Is this a reversible condition. ? Are there any good homeopathic remedies to cure this

    • ANSWER:
      Fatty liver

      Definition

      Fatty liver is the collection of excessive amounts of triglycerides and other fats inside liver cells.

      Description

      Also called steatosis, fatty liver can be a temporary or long-term condition, which is not harmful itself, but may indicate some other type of problem. Left untreated, it can contribute to other illnesses. It is usually reversible once the cause of the problem is diagnosed and corrected. The liver is the organ responsible for changing fats eaten in the diet to types of fat that can be stored and used by the body. Triglycerides are one of the forms of fat stored by the body and used for energy and new cell formation. The break down of fats in the liver can be disrupted by alcoholism, malnutrition, pregnancy, or poisoning. In fatty liver, large droplets of fat, containing mostly triglycerides, collect within cells of the liver. The condition is generally not painful and may go unnoticed for a long period of time. In severe cases, the liver can increase to over three times its normal size and may be painful and tender.

      Causes and symptoms

      The most common cause of fatty liver in the United States is alcoholism. In alcoholic fatty liver, over consumption of alcohol changes the way that the liver breaks down and stores fats. Often, people with chronic alcoholism also suffer from malnutrition by eating irregularly and not consuming a balanced diet. Conditions that can also cause fatty liver are other forms of malnutrition (especially when there is not enough protein in the diet), obesity, diabetes mellitus, and Reye's syndrome in children. Pregnancy can cause a rare, but serious form of fatty liver that starts late in pregnancy and may be associated with jaundice and liver failure. Some drug overdoses or toxic chemical poisonings, such as carbon tetrachloride, can also cause fatty liver.

      Often, there are no symptoms associated with fatty liver. If there are symptoms, they can include pain under the rib cage on the right side of the body, swelling of the abdomen, jaundice, and fever. Symptoms that occur less often in alcoholic fatty liver, but more often in pregnancy related fatty liver, are nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and abdominal pain.

      Diagnosis

      During a physical examination, a doctor might notice that the liver is enlarged and tender when the abdomen is palpated (examined with the tips of the fingers while the patient lies flat). Blood tests may be used to determine if the liver is functioning properly. A liver biopsy, where a small sample of liver tissue is removed with a long needle or though a very small incision, can be used to confirm fatty liver. In pregnant women, the fatty liver condition is usually associated with another serious complication, pre-eclampsia or eclampsia. In this condition, the mother has seriously high blood pressure, swelling, and possibly, seizures. Laboratory abnormalities include elevations of the SGOT (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase) and SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase). In many cases the alkaline phosphatase will be significantly elevated due to cholestasis produced by the fatty infiltration.

      Treatment

      Treatment involves correcting the condition that caused fatty liver and providing supportive care. In fatty liver caused by alcoholism, the treatment is to give up drinking alcohol and to eat a healthy, well balanced diet. In fatty liver associated with pregnancy, the recommended treatment is to deliver the baby, if the pregnancy is far enough along. Vitamin and mineral supplements along with nutritional support may be useful.

      Prognosis

      Fatty liver is usually reversible if recognized and treated. There may be some long-term tendency toward other types of liver problems depending on how long and how severe the fatty liver condition was. In pregnant women with the condition, the situation can be life threatening for both the mother and the infant. Left untreated, there is a high risk of death for both the mother and baby. Severe liver damage that may require a liver transplant can occur in the mother if the condition is not recognized early.

      Prevention

      Prevention consists of maintaining a well balanced diet and healthy lifestyle with moderate or no alcohol consumption. Pregnant women require good prenatal care so that symptoms can be recognized and treated as early as possible. To prevent Reye's syndrome, children should not be given aspirin to treat symptoms of the flu or other viruses.

  34. QUESTION:
    wat is grade 2-3 fatty liver?is it reversible?how?
    my dad z having fatty liver grade 2-3.i want to know all possible details.i.e.,prevention,cure,etc....plz rep....i want him to follow as early as possible.he z 55yrs old..

    • ANSWER:
      Fatty liver, also known as fatty liver disease (FLD), is a reversible condition where large vacuoles of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells via the process of steatosis (i.e. abnormal retention of lipids within a cell). Treatment depends on the cause, and there are a numer of different causes. But here are some tips:

      Reduce the intake of refined carbohydrates in your diet such as white bread, white rice, pasta, noodles, cakes, biscuits, desserts, soft drinks, sweetened fruit juices and also that of table sugar. Avoid breakfast cereals too.
      Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables in the diet.
      Eat whole grains such as brown rice, whole wheat products, oats, ragi, bajra, jowar etc and Pulses and legumes.
      Avoid all kinds of fried food, processed food, high fat foods in general all junk food.
      Avoid red meats such as mutton, beef, pork and opt for fat trimmed meats and white meats such as fish, chicken, turkey. Avoid processed meat or cured meats.
      Switch over to low fat milk products from full cream or full fat milk products.
      Avoid margarine, mayonnaise as much as possible.
      Avoid artificial sweeteners as well. They do not help in the long term.
      Use oils which provided monounsaturated fatty acids.
      Control diabetes with diet, medications and exercise.
      Keep your cholesterol levels in check and reduce triglycerides in the blood.
      Avoid alcohol as much as possible.
      Exercise daily to reduce weight and to keep weight in check.
      Reduce the abdominal fat content by eating smaller meals and by exercising daily by walking, jogging and also bu incorporating yoga in your diet.

  35. QUESTION:
    my father was diagnosed with FATTY LIVER?
    my father aged 56,alcoholic from about 25 years (daily alcohol consumption is 300 ml) was suffering from some problem with his liver the symptoms were:
    abdominal pain (non radiating)
    vomit after meal
    lack of appetite
    he got himself checked from a liver expert.
    ultrasound was ok but it showed moderate fatty liver.
    endoscopy was fine with no ulcers n all...
    he is not obese ,not suffering from diabetes ..
    liver function tests were also ok...
    now his condition has improved and he has starting taking meals n dsnt feels vomit sensation....
    i want to know that what diet plan should he follow to cure this problem...
    is this problem fatal..???
    i am worried...
    plz help...
    he has reduces his alcohol consumption to abt one drink a day ,but cant quit it completely....

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, I will try to answer your question as best I can. It's very good that your dad had himself chcked out and that he is making an effort to reduce his drinking. Unfortunately, once liver disease has begun from alcoholism, it is progressive. The good news is that fatty liver disease is the first step in this progression, and it is possible to completely reverse the damage, but he will need to stop drinking entirely. The next step is alcoholic hepatitis, which is more serious, and then cirrhosis, which is life-threatening and is NOT reversible.
      I actually have a bit of personal experience here; I am a recovering alcoholic myself and have been sober for over 2 1/2 years. The reason that I am mentioning this is that I know it IS possible to stop completely. He feels that he cannot; that is part of the disease of alcoholism. He is down to one drink a day, which means that at this moment, he is not significantly physically dependent on alcohol. The problem is, his liver is already damaged. It cannot handle its normal functions the way a healthy liver would. Alcohol is very stressful on the diseased liver. The crazy part of this disease is that he and his family and probably even his doctor probably believe he is not an alcoholic if he can cut way down like that. This is not usually the case. Any alcohol in his system will most likely eventually drive him back to his old habits and beyond. This is why support from a group (such as AA or SMART recovery or others) can be so crucial. Therapy or counselling can help also. This is a genetic and chemical problem and has nothing to do with willpower or morality.
      As for diet, I would suggest a basic healthy diet, low in saturated fats, higher in unsaturated, higher in fiber, moderate in protein, lots of fresh veggies and fruits and whole grains. Milk thistle can be a good supplement for the liver. As always, I am not a doc and he should follow his doctor's recommendations.
      I have a great deal of sympathy for him and for you. Alcoholism sucks, but your dad will hopefully discover that he is not alone and he can live sober one day at a time. It is very hard to quit drinking, and at first it may seem impossible and pointless, but eventually the rewards WILL outweigh this. Best of luck to you both!

  37. QUESTION:
    What can I do about my fatty liver?. c?
    I have just been diagnosed with "non alcoholic fatty liver disease, thoughI have high cholesterol ,the specialist attributed it too me" being half a stone over weight, this makes no sense to me as I know poeple twice as haevey and twice my age, who do not have this condition. He recoomends " diet and exersize., I alraedy do exersize size three times a week, and eat seansably.

    I fear devlponing cirhosses, might someone have any ideas for reasion why I may have this, and how it might be cured?.

    • ANSWER:
      It's caused by high cholesterol, being overweight and having a genetic predisposition. The genetics are why not every overweight person develops a fatty liver.
      You must eat a lower calorie diet with much less fat in it, and do more strenuous exercise. Try to lose at least half a stone. If you're predisposed to liver disease, it can't hurt to lose a little more, maybe a stone.
      It's not fair that some people get it and others don't, but if you don't do all you can now then you will get cirrhosis. So however unlikely it seems, you should change your diet and exercise more.

  39. QUESTION:
    I have NAFLD (Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease). What are my chances of getting Cirrhosis?
    I went to the the ER the other day because I have had chronic diarrhea, dizziness, and abdominal pain for more than 3 months now. The Dr. found that I had NAFLD and said that I should be seeing a Dr. for this condition and said that I need MANY tests done to see what is causing it. She also said that I have to be on a vegan diet (I am not overweight) to see if it can reverse the Disease. My questions are: Is there a cure for this & What are the chances of it forming into Cirrhosis?

    • ANSWER:
      You should be seeing either a gastroenterlogist
      or hepatologist now.
      Fatty liver disease can be caused by many
      different things: alcohol consumption, certain
      medications like steriods, weight gain, hereditary conditions,
      diabetes, insulin resistance, high cholesterol/triglyceride levels
      and more.

      The cause needs to be determined.
      There are different stages of this disease....
      Simple fatty liver doesn't usually cause a
      problem and can be easily reversed by
      stopping the cause. Alot of people are very
      thin and can still have this problem.

      The fat pushes on the liver cells and can
      even push the nucleus of the liver cell out of
      place. That is why it has to be treated immediately
      ....so the fat will disappear and not harm the cells.
      The liver is surrounded by a membrane capsule and
      the fat only adds to the pressure inside the liver.
      If the cells of the liver become damaged, it signals
      the immune system of the body to respond to
      this. The immune system then causes inflammation
      to develop inside the liver, also. This will cause the
      liver to enlarge in size. It then goes from simple
      fatty liver to steatohepatitis. Steato means fat,
      hepat means liver and itis means inflammation.
      This becomes more serious...the inflammation adds
      to more pressure inside the liver and the cells can
      more easily start to die off. When the cells die off,
      it becomes a progressive disease known as
      Cirrhosis of the liver. What happens now, it the
      cells die off and form scar tissue inside the liver
      that blocks the flow of blood through the liver on
      its way back to the heart and may also block
      the flow of blood to the other liver cells and they
      will continually die off.

      If the patient follows the doctor instructions and
      is treated for any inflammation that may have
      developed...then it may never go to the point of
      becoming Cirrhosis of the liver.

    I need to lower them to normal levels get an iPad 2 for my birthday next month.

    For SGPT, I've had this problem for a while. My first check-up, it was 185. So I stopped eating much chips and carbonated drinks (I don't drink alcohol) and lowered it to 97. I completely stopped eating chips and drinks other than water, but my last check-up, it jumped up to 115. What caused this?

    As for uric acid, I don't know anything about it, so any other information about it is welcome.

    Bonus question, how to cure a fatty liver?

    Thank you for the responses.

    • ANSWER:
      For SGPT, cut way down on fat in your diet. Same thing with the fatty liver. I'm guessing you are significantly overweight if you are still responding to parents. You don't need an Ipad, you need to get out and exercise more.

      High uric is a sign of gout and needs to be reduced with medication. You can help by cutting down on caffeine. Obesity is also a cause of elevations.

      I'm surprised your doctor hasn't made recommendations. Or maybe has, but you ignore it.

      The hard truth, for all of your conditions, is you need to get out and exercise more and eat less. You also need to eat healthier.

    • ANSWER:
      yes, I have and also harvest red clover, plantain and violets right outside the door.

      And many herbs/plants/wild foods from the fields and woods too in my life.

      But they are pretty cheap to buy..the ones in my fridge from Kroger just cost 1.29 lb

      I always liked dandelions even as a little girls and never thought them weeds but pretty flowers that look cool in a field or lawn personally.

      As a child I loved flowers an picking them and this helped me later in life to identify them easier for wild foods or medicines. the more I learn about the astounding power of so many plants, the more in awe I am of this creation of ours and the creator who put all these healing chemicals in them.

      I never heard the helped diabetes though hmm

      the cool thing about herbs is that many cures many types of ills not just one (although some are specific to an organ like milk thistle for the liver, ginkgo for the brain or hawthorne for the heart)..this is cause herbs go tot he root cause and fix the problem causing various symptoms (which doctors call each a disease)...they also unlike drugs work organically with our body..

      The dandelion is a particularly mighty plant.

      would most people eat them..on this forum perhaps but in general no..the average person does not want to fix their own health but rather go to an doctor and say give me some pill to heal me (after I got sick with my crappy lifestyle)

      the more you study herbs the more amazing it is what a gift they are to man and beast

  45. QUESTION:
    Please help my cat, i don't know what to do!?
    ok its a long story but please read it. my cat is 11 years old.

    my cat was throwing up yellow liquid every day for a week and kept making an awful yelping noise before he would vomit. we took him to the vet and they said there were crystals in his kidney that were small enough to be dissolved by a special type of food, which he ate and seemed to like. they also prescribed an antibiotic and an anti vomiting pill for him to take (cerenia?). he seemed better for about a day or two, but then he refused to eat his food and threw up a few times over the course of 4 days and sometimes the vomit was like white foam; other times it was yellow liquid. We took him to the vet after he refused to eat for 4 days. the vet made a chiropractic adjustment on his back (((also made one one week prior, because he had hip/back problems before and his back was sort of swayed near his butt. the vet thought that it may have been pressing on his kidneys and causing a gag reflex. his back was better but he still vomited afterward))) and this time his back seemed better but this did not cure his illness. he prescribed a higher dosage of cerenia (anti vomit/anti nausea), and said to stop giving our cat the antibiotic, which he felt may have been ruining his appetite. also, because our cat was not eating at all for 4 days, he said to feed him wet food through a syringe. we took him home today after he went to the vet yesterday and gave him his second anti-vomit/nausea pill (cerenia) and fed him a few times with the syringe. (((the vet also suggested that the cat may have developed a aversion to the special food for his kidney because he got more sick while eating it, so we tried to give him his old dry food today. he seemed interested in the food and ate a few pieces but mostly just pushed it around the bowl.))) after we gave him the cerenia pill, he sat near the wall in a ball (he'd been doing this since we noticed him getting sick and he also hid in new places; idk if this means anything. throughout all of this, he has seemed more lethargic, tired, and overall weak than we have ever seen him.) and i walked over to see what he was doing. i noticed a few drops of water/drool? were coming out of his mouth. now i'm not sure if he just drank, but i don't think he did. he dripped a few times like a faucet that's barely left on. on sunday hes going back to the vet to have a urinalysis completed because he had blood in his urine in the last examination. i don't know what's going on, and it seems as if the vet is just as perplexed (he basically said it could be any number of things and i remember him saying pancreaitis and other things like if he doesn't eat he will get fatty liver disease.) so i'm just really confused and am looking for anyone who has experienced the same thing or has any suggestions.

    sorry it is so long....but i'm getting desperate now.

    • ANSWER:
      I am not a doctor or anything, but here is what I would do, based on my experience.

      Immediately discontinue cerenia. It sounds like your cat is having a reaction to it. Cerenia is not approved for use in cats and there are some concerns with its use. Besides, the bile is not the problem with the cat - it is a symptom. The cause of the illness should be investigated. A cat who is not feeling well will often hide and sleep excessively.

      Also, your cat must eat! Cats are poor fasters and fatty liver disease is a real possibility for cats who go without eating for a couple of days. Never wait for 4 days. If you must, assist feed the cat. Make a slurry of canned food mixed with water and slowly feed the cat using a syringe. Never squirt directly into the throat, but gently ease it into the side of the mouth and allow the cat to swallow on its own.

      Seek a second opinion from another vet if your cat is not getting better.

  46. QUESTION:
    Pain in tummy, not cramps!?
    I have been to numerous doctors and gastroentrologists had plenty of blood work, ultra sounds, and CT scans done, and they can not find anything wrong with me except that I have a fatty liver, which has no symptoms.

    Here's the issue.. everytime I eat for about the past six months, i get very sick to my stomach after I eat, almost every meal! the best way to describe the pain is "belly rot" it feels like the stomach is literally rotting and it feels terrible. I have drastically altered my diet and lost about 10 pounds in the past three weeks so far, but can't find the cause of all this pain! it seems that it comes from every single type of food. i can eat a salad and feel sick, i can eat a big mac and feel sick, i can eat a sandwhich and feel sick. i am very careful of what i eat now but no matter what i do, it all comes back and makes me sick.
    as for the location of the pain, it is the lower part of my torso, below the bellybutton. in the area where you normally get cramps. and it seems to be located more on the left side, but still in the center. when i get the "belly rot" i get very sweaty, very anxious, i feel like i need to use the bathroom very badly, and this is within 15 minutes of my first bite of food.
    i need to find some kind of answers, some kind of clues, anything that can lead me to finding a cure, because it is only getting worse. and i am going to college in the fall.
    i cant keep living like this.

    please help me, anyone.
    anything, any advice, any at all is soo much appreciated!!!

  47. QUESTION:
    Is it the medicine side effect?
    Hi!

    I'm 19 (male). I had urinary tract infection 10 days ago (had fever too). The UTI is gone now (I took Nitrofurantoin to cure UTI). I took Nitrofurantoin (Nintoin) for 1 week (100 mg tablet 3 times a day) Now doctor found that I have fatty liver (Triglyceride is 219.0 mg/dl). So he gave me Atorvastatin (Atova) for Dyslipidemia (10 mg 2 times a day for 1 month) and some diet restictions. Suddenly my blood pressure went high (after finishing the nintoin course) so the doc gave me Furosemide (Lasix, 1 tablet per day for 5 days) . So at the moment I'm taking 2 medicines Atova and Lasix and I'm feeling very bad.... sick! I'm having problem breathing (doc said i dont have heart and lung problems) and feeling very weak (dizzy) like a dead man! I'm not like this. Usually I'm a strong person. I don't know, what's exactly happening but I'm not feeling well. Please help. Thanks!

  48. QUESTION:
    9 Months of Hell (is it my gallbladder?)?
    I need to know I'm not alone out here; I am a 21 year old female and I believe I need my gallbladder removed.

    Symptoms:
    I cannot eat a thing without throwing up (also heave bile id I don't eat at all), I experience constant searing pain in my right side a little under my rib that only eases occasionally but never goes away (can sometimes feel it in my shoulder blade; can be described as a throbbing, someone pudiarrhoeaeir elbow in or a knife has been stuck in and twisted). I also experience constant cramping, gas and diarrhea.

    Reason to believe:
    I have a family history of this and my hormone levels have recently elevated due to the discovery of my hypothyroid; I take tricyclin and levo-thyroxide.

    I have tried many medications and adjusted my diet (even to B.R.A.T) but nothing helps to even ease the vomiting. There is 100% no chance of pregnancy. I have been seeing doctors for months trying to find out why this is happening but feel I have been getting the runaround. I will try to leave out my dissatification with them but this is progression of my situation:

    October 23rd 2009: I begin vomiting at least once a day. I figured I had the flu.
    Novemeber 18th 2009: I am diagnosed with Bronchitis and banned from work (apparently I am not eligable for EI or anything else so my folks help cover my bills).
    December 25th 2009: Discover my mother, grandmother and grandaunt all had to have their gallbladders removed for the same symptoms. Vomiting and breathing have worsened with addition of muscle pains (visited the ER several times but was sent home.)
    January 21st 2010: Have an Ultrasound (only a fatty liver found). The procedure was excruciatingly painful as they preformed the procedure (I literally tore up the sheet on the bed). From this date I begin experiencing the seering pain in my right side (hasn't left since).
    March 2010: Diagnosed with a bad allergy to dustmites and will begin immunization when I can afford it (to this date have not made enough money to cover my bills/food/rent until I am cured of my other problems.)
    April 6th 2010: I have an Upper Endoscopy with nothing found. Doctor tells me to take Nexium (which my family doctor already told me not to take because it was making a lump in my throat.)
    April 30th 2010: Must return to work (parents can no longer support me.)
    July 20th 2010: After occasional check ups my Doctor finally arranges catscan while informing me my iron levels are very low.
    August 9th 2010: I have my Catscan.
    August 12th: I recieve a phone call from my doctor saying the scan showed Diverticulosis (which is good to know) but doesn't explain the vomiting and pain. My gallbladder was not shown; an appointment is set for the 16th to discuss my results. After researching it, I will be asking my doctor for several tests such as an MRI for my gallbladder.

    Results:
    My symptoms continue. I have lost 40 pounds (with a hypothyroid), my hair is literally going grey from vomiting and I have to take tylenol every 4 hours in order to function. I continue to get low hours at work due to my illness. I have told my doctors at EVERY appointment about how much Tylenol I have to take, and their response is if I am in that much pain I should go to ER, but I have been to the ER several times and they always tell me there's a problem but it's not immediate enough to fix so they send me home. I'm scared that my liver is being seriously damaged and I am constantly having fits of crying. I don't remeber what it's like to NOT be sore.

    I find it surprizing that after research their are tons of other people out there who are treated the same way on this subject. Am I so wrong to believe that my gallbladder is the cause?
    I had my appointment yesterday; my doctor is going to try and arrange a Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) but not an HIDA or MRI. He also said I shouldn't worry about the amount of Tylenol I'm taking because a person can take 3000mg a day and I'm only taking 2500-3000mg a day. The Catscan said it found nothing remarkable but Sigmoid Diverticulosis (which wont be treated). Does this mean my gallbladder is not the issue?

  49. QUESTION:
    unexplained pain in right hand lower ribs?
    Had scans, x-rays and ump-teen blood tests, gall stones not found but slight fatty infultratation of the liver detected, but nothing a bit of weight loss won't cure. Been to nhs pain clinic and they couldn't suggest anything. It's been going on for roughly 7 years....any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Ask your doctor for a liver function test. It'll show up any damage immediately. I've had liver damage and it can be very painful in the area you described. If this is the case, you might need to review your lifestyle/diet/medications etc. but the best person to guide you through this is a good doctor.

      If your doctor isn't paying attention, find a new one, because pain was invented to show your body something is wrong, and you deserve to get to the bottom of it!
