Probably not: Fatty liver from obesity is a common condition. Most people don't experience any symptoms from it. Stretching of the liver could give some discomfort in the upper right side of the abdomen, but again, most people with fatty liver don't feel their liver and if they do, cramping wouldn't be a typical description of the discomfort. Sounds like it's worth having your primary care provider take a look. ...Read more

I usually recommend about 1200cal/day with one 500cal meal at night and three 200cal snacks for the day. Drink alot of water (0.5oz per pound you weigh) to help with the positive results. ...Read more

Get hard-core: I trust hepatitis c and wilson's have been ruled out (wilson's is tricky). If you exercise really hard and diet really seriously, you're going to lose weight and get buffed.

Your physician can advise you about medicine, and there are some natural / holistic remedies worth investigating. ...Read more
