Fatty tissue found on live found via ultrasound at ER on tuesday, enlarged liver and no health insurance. Can i wait to see a specialist?

Yes: I'd start with a good general physical and lab evaluation by a primary doctor. Steatosis, or fatty infiltration of the liver, can be seen in people who are overweight, are diabetic, or have high cholesterol/triglycerides. You may not need anything more than a weight loss program or management of your cholesterol. Start at the beginning, and don't panic. Good luck. ...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
