What is fatty liver and what causes it. What is the sideeffects. My side on left an my stomach is fat back pain have kidney problem hurt all the time.

Hello.: Hello. I don’t know what the cause of your fatty liver is. However, a major cause of fatty liver is drinking too much alcohol. Alcohol use combined with poor diet, obesity, abnormally high iron levels and hepatitis c can increase the chances of getting fatty liver. There are also people who have fatty livers who don’t have an illness and who don’t drink. Some people can develop a fatty liver off drinking really heavily for a weekend, and the fat decreases when they stop drinking. In your case, it would be best to get specific input from your doctor as s/he can put this in the context of your total health picture. Take care. ...Read more

Why is it important for kidney dialysis patients to not have any saturated fat?

Why is it important for kidney dialysis patients to not have any saturated fat?

This leads to a higher risk for heart disease and is one of the leading causes of death with many times the risk compared to normal population. Any measure to reduce the risk is beneficial including improoving the lipid profile ie reducing "bad" cholesterol and avoiding saturated fats is one way of doing so. ...Read more

Tiny hyperechoic foci without shadowing noted in lower pole of both kidneys-sinus fat/calculi. How dangerous is the situation?

Symptoms?: The ultrasound report merely states that there is something around the lower kidney that is more dense than the rest of the surrounding tissue. In all likelihood it represents fatty change or small kidney-stones. If you had symptoms that prompted this investigation you might require further investigation, if not you could possibly just do a follow up ultrasound in 3 months. ...Read more

Male, 31years, diagnosed w/ 0.7cm kidney parenchima mass, little fat in ct. If malig, what are the chances of it already spread?

Male, 31years, diagnosed w/ 0.7cm kidney parenchima mass, little fat in ct. If malig, what are the chances of it already spread?

Probably Low: Only 50% of masses with a diameter smaller than 1 cm are malignant. Despite the localized, nonaggressive behavior of most small renal tumors, up to 5% of patients with masses 4 cm or smaller present with metastatic disease so we would expect the risk for your 7 mm mass to be much lower. Don't ignore it, get treated, good luck. Check out:

My father have a thick fat layer deposited in his liver actually. I want some general suggestion? This may harm his kidneys too??

Here are some. ..: Various amount of fat normally exists around the kidneys and in their sinus where kidney arteries, veins, and renal pelvis (the hollow part of kidneys) merge. But regardless of the amount, it's of no harm to kidneys and requires no intervention as long as not affecting urine drainage and kidney function. More detail? Ask Doc timely. ...Read more

I'm 16 and a guy how do you lose lower back fat?

Lose weight: Unfortunately, there are not really any tricks or special exercises to lose fat in particular areas. You need to lose weight overall, then you'll see an improvement in these areas. Diet and exercise - it's more important to make small changes that you can live with long term than to lose a lot of weight (only to gain it back). Meeting with a dietician is often helpful. Best of luck! ...Read more

I have fat in my lower back/sides. How can I get rid of it?

Nutrition & exercise: Aside from plastic surgery, there is no spot reduction. Via nutrition & exercise, you lose fat all over (although some claim more in one area than others). But spot reduction is not realistic via any specific exercise. Focus instead on lifestyle eg proper nutrition & regular intense physical activity. It's also good for your health. ...Read more

I had liposuction on my lower back and fat transferred to my buttocks 3mo ago why do I still have burning sensation in my lower back?

Nerve recovery: One of the most common, usually completely reversible consequences of liposuction is change in sensation. Areas of numbness are expected after liposuction due to minor trauma to sensory nerves but complete sensation is expected to return within days, weeks or at most, months. This symptom can be minimally bothersome or more so. Discuss your symptoms with your surgeon for advice. ...Read more

After I had lower back surgery, my left foot is numb. Doctor said I have poor circulation and that the pulse in my left foot is slower than my right. He said it could be too much fat being absorbed.

After I had lower back surgery, my left foot is numb. Doctor said I have poor circulation and that the pulse in my left foot is slower than my right. He said it could be too much fat being absorbed.

I'm: I'm sorry you're having problems with your legs and feet. Unfortunately, without an examination and further testing (nerve conduction studies, repeat MRI of your lower back, etc.) it's simply not possible to determine why you're having these symptoms.
Depending on the type of surgery you had, your numbness could be caused by transient inflammation and swelling around the surgical site. Such swelling could compress nearby nerve roots and cause numbness in your lower extremities. Alternatively, it's possible your legs or ankles were crossed or compressed during surgery or shortly thereafter, when you were too sedated to change positions. This could cause a "palsy" in one or more of the peripheral nerves in your legs. Given time, this, too, should resolve. Finally, it's possible you experienced some as yet undetected damage during your surgery that injured the nerves in your back. If that's the case, your numbness might be permanent.
You may need to consult a neurologist or neurosurgeon to get the answers to your questions.
I hope things go well for you! ...Read more

How does lithotrypsy work and does do any damage to kidney tissues? If so, to what extent?

"Force" waves: Eswl is the process of fragmenting kidney stones with "force" waves (created in a pulsatile fashion by one of several different types of generators) focused through and into the body at your kidney stone (s). Since the human body is composed mostly of water (including your bones), the force waves pass through human tissue and break up the stone through refraction (release) at the stone interface. ...Read more
