Sugar Fat Conversion: Body ability to store sugar low & sugar used, in small amts, before fats. Sugar (ie. All carbs) in food (beyond low ongoing needs) quickly converted by liver into fat & if liver unable to export fat fast enough; fatty liver results. Thus eliminate all carbs, including fruit, so liver has to convert fat back to sugar & ketones (quite healthy). Study dietdoctor, taubes, lustig, attia, fatheadmovie. ...Read more

Is it possible for me to drink near beers with a fatty liver?

Is it possible for me to drink near beers with a fatty liver?

Go ahead: The fact that you're willing to drink only minimally-alcoholic drinks tells me that you're not a problem drinker and that your fatty liver may have a different cause. I trust hepatitis c and wilson's have been ruled out. The most common cause of fatty liver nowadays is lack of sufficient exercise for your body's genetic need. Why drink near-beer when you could be hitting the gym like a maniac? ...Read more

My frnd is diagnosed with fatty liver. A month ago he cited for dui of 0.11 after only 3 drink in 6 hrs. Do fatty liver affect metabolism rate?

Liver and Alcohol: First, your friend is probably an alcoholic. Drinking when one has liver disease is crazy or insane. Fatty liver alone can cause early death from liver failure. Drinking alcohol in that setting is very unhealthy.

His liver is not able to do much when it is ill. I would suspect that his blood alcohol level is accurate...He drank too much to be driving. ...Read more

Liver damage can be determined by a liver biopsy. ...Read more

I have fatty liver. I drink tons and tons of water already. Sometimes I have cravings for a soda. It is either Sprite or Mountain Dew. Are those okay?

Occasionally: Rachel, soda is not the best drink for your health. First, it is full of processed corn syrup, which is nothing more than empty calories. Second, the carbonation if overconsumed can increase your risk of osteoporosis. That being said, having a small amount of soda occasionally when you have a craving for it is probably OK. Hope this helps! ...Read more

27 years old female (asian), diagnosed with a fatty liver having sgpt level of 315. I don't drink or smoke. What can I take for pain and discomfort?

Maybe new diagnosis?: In my experience, simple fatty liver seldom causes liver function tests to elevate to the degree you describe (what is the "normal" range for your lab?) how long have your tests been high? Have you had a liver biopsy? Have your doctors ruled out mitigating factors for macrovesicular fat: infectious, nutritional, metabolic, drug and substance-related? Is your fatty liver microvesicular instead? ...Read more

My ALT level is 66 range is less than 46. I've a fatty liver. I drink once a week and that one day is little heavy. Will this cause any chronic problem?

My ALT level is 66 range is less than 46. I've a fatty liver. I drink once a week and that one day is little heavy. Will this cause any chronic problem?

Listen buddy: Drinking that is "a little heavy" is like being "a little bit pregnant". I think you realize that it's time to stop, before you become addicted and you lose the ability to stop. This is a common pattern that usually ends in trouble. Especially if you have anxiety and depression, alcohol will make this worse. It's not worth it. Find something meaningful -- spirituality? Fitness? -- in its place. ...Read more

I am 37 yrs. Drinking alcahol up to 2 yr before, my liver condition is grade1 fatty liver, bilirubin level 1.7 to2 for the last 2 yr other test normal?

Get a consult: Two years after ending alcohol abuse, without cirrhosis, the fatty liver and elevated bilirubin are not due to your alcohol abuse. I'm glad you stopped. Your fatty liver may be due to anything from hepatitis c to non-alcoholic fatty liver; the bilirubin may simply be gilbert's. Normal transaminases speak against serious illness. Demand answers from your physicians. ...Read more

Besides taking milk thistle, what should I do to reverse the effects of a fatty liver (not from drinking)?

If your bmi is > 24, losing weight will result in improvement in ast/alt and reduction of fat in the liver. Certainly elimination of alcohol (if you drink) is recommended. Stop the milk thistle. Good luck! ...Read more
