What is the best thing to do with my mild fatty liver?

Lose weight, see Dr.: A person with mild fatty liver likely has gotten extra fat in most other places in the body, and probably is eating more sugar and plain carbs than he should be. To start, exercise, weight loss, and a low sugar and low carbs diet will help. He should work with his primary care doctor to see if he needs medication or further testing, as there can be other problems, such as high cholesterol.

I know what a fatty liver mean but what do they mean when they say they say it's borderline mild?

I know what a fatty liver mean but what do they mean when they say they say it's borderline mild?

Slightly abnormal: Fatty liver is a sonographic/radiologic finding and is graded mild, moderate, or severe etc. Each liver has some fatty infitration, but above certain level then it is termed fatty liver--the most common liver disease in us today (obesity epidemic). Borderline means just at higher end of normal-lower end of abnormal (mild fatty liver). Weight likely will help reverse this. Consult doc. Good luck.

I've been diagnosed with fatty liver, my lft is normal. How can you know the degree of fat accumulation? Mild/moderate/severe?

Biopsy standard: Liver biopsy usually gold standard. Exact percentage of liver involvement with fatty deposition difficult to determine. Isotope xenon 133 gas has been used to calculate percentage. Xenon goes to fat in liver and calculate percentate compared to biopsy results. Mr and ultrasound technologies are developing methods to determine fat content. Usually moderate to severe fat causes elevated enzymes.

Had another u/s gallbladder polyp went down from6.5 mm to 4 mm is that good and had borderline mild fatty liver lost 25 lbs but still there why?

Had another u/s gallbladder polyp went down from6.5 mm to 4 mm is that good and had borderline mild fatty liver lost 25 lbs but still there why?

Monitor: Polyp that size is very unlikely to be a cancer. 1 cm or greater generally point of concern. Can monitor with sonograms over time at this point. Additional tests like ct or MRI not warranted at this time. Borderline fatty liver is improvement for you. Meds or alcohol, high fat or high carb (simple sugars) can add to it.

Reverse risk factors: Fatty liver is incredibly common, predominantly due to: high alcohol intake, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity. The more of these risks you have, the greater the chance of fatty liver. Addressing these risks is an important step to correcting fatty liver. Distinguish hepatosteatosis (fatty liver) from steatohepatitis (fatty liver with abnormal liver tests that risks cirrhosis & liver cancer).

Diagnosed mild fatty liver elevated enzymes on off for 7 months. Us shows no fat why would enzymes be high no hepatitis. Could it be chronic liver dis?

Bad Fats?: Our liver is a big filter and when it gets overwhelmed by bad fat (from too much junk food, transfats, carbs, etc) it gets backed up something like a drain. You might consider asking your doc or a nutritionist for some guidance about healthy food choices and see how things go. The very best to you.
