Does having recovered from a fatty liver leave any permanent damage?

Does having recovered from a fatty liver leave any permanent damage?

No: Glad you're better. If it was alcohol, it's your heads-up. If it was "metabolic syndrome" / "non-alcoholic fatty liver", stay physically fit and you've probably saved your life. If it was hepatitis c, hoping you got a cure or will be able to manage it. ...Read more

How much time does it take for liver to enlarge to 20cm? Days, weeks, months, years?

How much time does it take for liver to enlarge to 20cm? Days, weeks, months, years?

Liver enlargement: The liver has a capsule around it, so if you stretch that rather quickly (days) as might occur with an acute infection, it will hurt alot. If it's a slowly progressive disease, the liver enlargement could take place over months to years and may not be as noticeable. Definitely good though to get the diagnosis nailed down to best plan out the treatment. The good news is that the liver is resiliant ...Read more

Days the liver takes to detox?

Days the liver takes to detox?

No such thing: Detox from what? The liver is a natural factory that packages and gets rid of a variety of chemicals, some of which are toxins, others are totally harmless. I am not a believer in this idea that our bodies are chock fulla toxins we put in, and that fasts, enemas, cleanses and a variety of herbs "detoxifies" (removes the toxins). There is virtually no scientific evidence for any of this. ...Read more

Is it safe to stop taking my pain medication for a few days to give my liver a break. Its hard but I don't want to be adicted.?

Is it safe to stop taking my pain medication for a few days to give my liver a break. Its hard but I don't want to be adicted.?

Liver break: Please consult with your md as to the advisability of altering your pain medication doses. It is unlikely that taking a 2 day break will significantly protect your liver. It may not afford any less risk of them becoming addictive either. Consider alternative pain meds that can be taken as needed or have less risk of habituation (addiction). ...Read more

You have "hepatitis": "Hepatitis" is a generic term that means your liver is inflamed. This can be caused by infection w/ viruses (like a, b, c, d, e, etc, cmv, ebv), parasites, bacteria.

Men can typically have 2 drinks/d while women are allowed just 1/d. However, you're not supposed to drink more to make up for days you didn't imbibe.

ALT 65, AST 214, Hep B, C Neg. 2 Gasteroenterologists its ok & Leave fried food. I live in India. Plz suggest liver friendly foods & other tips if any.

Continue workup: Food isn't the key. You need to have hemochromatosis, Wilson's, and autoimmune hepatitis ruled out. Chances are that this is your liver's way of telling you that it wants you to get back to that fitness-focused lifestyle you enjoyed as a teen. Why not start today? Best wishes. ...Read more

U/S shows enlarged liver & sludge, the last three days yellow line in eyes? Overly tired, slight pain in URQ and sometimes ULQ. Should I be concerned?

U/S shows enlarged liver & sludge, the last three days yellow line in eyes? Overly tired, slight pain in URQ and sometimes ULQ. Should I be concerned?

Needs investigation.: With yellowing in the eyes and an enlarged liver, we would think that this could be a liver issue, but we would really need blood testing both for (1) liver enzymes such as bilirubin, AST, ALT and (2) possible etiologies such as hepatitis and hemochromatosis. So we really need more information before we can link all this together. ...Read more

My 85 year old mom was told stage 4 liver cancer doing no treatment need to leave work. How long does she have I want to help with herand spend time?

Varies but not long: How long some one lives with stage IV liver cancer (hepatocellular cancer and not metastatic from other primary site) depends on the aggressiveness of the cancer and how well she is functioning. Would suggest spending as much time sooner while you can mutually enjoy each other's company. Weeks to a few months. ...Read more

High liver count due to alochol, now normal. Had 2 days of alcohol after that. Test 2 days later normal. But weird bloated feeling. Enlarged?

Liver and Alcohol: This is very consistent to the damage that can be done by alcohol and how the liver can bounce back. But, abusing your liver again makes me wonder how many times you will get away with experimenting with it's health. The second set of labs after drinking for two days may very well have been too early for accuracy. The bloating and swollen liver is exactly what should be happening. ...Read more

Can baclofen 10mg x 3x a day cause a high reading of liver emzymes? I have been on these for 9 days. Just found out my levels are high. Please help!

POSSIBLE: Yes, many medications can affect liver metabolism and function, and Baclofen is included, but you are in no major trouble if the liver enzyme elevation is less than 3 times normal. Whether you should stay on Baclofen is based on not only the degree of liver effect, but also benefits and tolerance. Discuss with your doctor in some detail. ...Read more
