Leave this testing to your physician and stop reading pop articles encouraging you to diagnose yourself with things you do not have. Forgive my frankness, stay physically fit, build your career skills, and do the things an 18 year old should. Best wishes. ...Read more

Non-alcoholic: It's your choice. I'm going to assume this is common non-alcoholic fatty liver and not a mimic such as hepatitis c or a medication allergy. Fruit juices aren't always as wholesome as one would think, especially the sugared ones. Your physician would probably like to see you stay physically fit and trim -- this is the key to management -- so grab your water bottle and hit the track. Save your life. ...Read more
