I have fatty tissue in my liver, what problems could this cause?

Interesting : It is not the question to ask. The question you should be asking is what is the cause. Too much alcohol can help do this. If someone is very overweight , this can be the cause. This can occur in prediabetic states or in diabetes. It may also be a precursor of cirrhosis. Meds can be the cause of this as well as some infections. There can also be a problem is someone had extreme weight loss. See doc ...Read more

How bad is a focal area suggestiv of central fibrosis within liver. Mild centrilobular cholestasis and attached fibroadiposed tissue with fat necrosis?

Depends: It is impossible to evaluate these findings without knowing the clinical setting and the results of other tests of liver function. Certainly this does not make me suspect liver cancer. If you have questions about this ultrasound finding, I would ask your doctor or your gastroenterologist. Good luck. ...Read more

Biopsy standard: Liver biopsy usually gold standard. Exact percentage of liver involvement with fatty deposition difficult to determine. Isotope xenon 133 gas has been used to calculate percentage. Xenon goes to fat in liver and calculate percentate compared to biopsy results. Mr and ultrasound technologies are developing methods to determine fat content.Usually moderate to severe fat causes elevated enzymes. ...Read more

Fatty liver 4 11mths enzymes elev also.normal 4 9mths us showed no fat in oct. My albiumn was 3.5 usually norm It was 3.1 11mths ago 1x only is it bad?

Fatty liver 4 11mths enzymes elev also.normal 4 9mths us showed no fat in oct. My albiumn was 3.5 usually norm It was 3.1 11mths ago 1x only is it bad?

No: It is good that your enzymes have normalized and that the fatty liver findings have disappeared within the past 9 months. It also sounds like the albumin increased from 3.1 to 3.5g/dL. Normal is usually about 3.5-5.5g/dL. Albumin is made by the liver. So this change would indicate better liver function. It is not like liver enzymes that leak into the blood when there is damage. ...Read more

I had fatty liver over 11 mths elevated enzymes but are now normal for 9 mths us show no fat in liver my albumin is 3.5 does this mean liver Is bad?

Congrats: Great job on reducing the fat on your liver. I assume you lost weight to have this happen…. Your albumin is low normal, maybe you are too extreme with your dieting, but a better gauge of your nutritional status is a pre albumin blood test. You may also have a lower albumin level due to a loss of protein in your kidneys,have your kidneys checked out too. What was your albumin level 11 months ago? ...Read more
