A health checkup showed my sgpt level was 342. An ultrasound showed an early fatty liver infiltration. What can be further effects of the same?

Fix this now: I'm very glad this was found and thankfully fixing this up will probably save your health. No alcohol for now; you are likely to be tested for hepatitis b and c, autoimmune hepatitis, hemochromatosis and wilson's; each is very treatable if diagnosed on time, lethal if missed. Or your enzymes may be up and liver fatty because it's time for a switch to an intensive aerobic fitness lifestyle. ...Read more

Yes, you may wait.: A fatty liver is the consequence, in most cases, of excessive body weight. The most effective therapy is weight control and even though various medicines have been tried, weight reductions is the most effective treatment for those persons who are heavy. You may wait to see a liver specialist because the liver damage takes a long time before it becomes permanent. ...Read more

I am 29 years old. Feel very healthy. Normal weight for my body. Had ultrasound done on liver for elevated enzymes. Just had mono and norovirus a few weeks ago. They found 3 small spots on my liver no bigger than 1 cm. Thoughts? Common causes?

I am 29 years old. Feel very healthy. Normal weight for my body. Had ultrasound done on liver for elevated enzymes. Just had mono and norovirus a few weeks ago. They found 3 small spots on my liver no bigger than 1 cm. Thoughts? Common causes?

Need much more info: You need to find out from your doctor what they mean when they say "spots". Were these seen on ultrasound or with CT scan,other imaging? Are they cystic or do they look like solid tissue abnormality. It's way to hard to make any guesses not even knowing how these were imaged. You had mono recently and this virus can affect the liver, so it may be nothing more than left over inflammation.... ...Read more
