Best way to detoxify liver with fatty liver disease and do I need to?

Not necessarily...: As we age fat deposits build up in our liver; best way to combat this is by being as 'low-fat' as possible; and your body will do the rest.

Cheers! ...Read more

Non-alcoholic: It's your choice. I'm going to assume this is common non-alcoholic fatty liver and not a mimic such as hepatitis c or a medication allergy. Fruit juices aren't always as wholesome as one would think, especially the sugared ones. Your physician would probably like to see you stay physically fit and trim -- this is the key to management -- so grab your water bottle and hit the track. Save your life. ...Read more

Is Your Liver Fried?: Those are pretty general symptoms but in your case. yes. It gets more complicated from there and the best course of action is to get to your doctor for an exam and blood tests to see how your liver and kidneys are doing and how you are doing and what, if anything, needs to be done going forward. Maybe it will be "nothing" but best to make sure. Until your appointment, try Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) for the nausea. ...Read more

Your physician can evaluate your symptoms within the context of specific laboratory values and your physical examination to help determine your risk profile and determine the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

Is it possible to have mildly elevated liver enzymes and some small spots on your liver during an ultrasound and have the two findings be totally unrelated? Could you have non alcoholic fatty liver disease and cysts or something similar?

Is it possible to have mildly elevated liver enzymes and some small spots on your liver during an ultrasound and have the two findings be totally unrelated? Could you have non alcoholic fatty liver disease and cysts or something similar?

Yes.: This is in fact common. Both liver cysts and liver enzyme abnormalities are very common. Therefore the overlap of those two is also common. It would be unlikely that a cyst alone would be responsible for liver enzyme elevations. ...Read more
