Does hep b increase chances of having a fatty liver? Should I take metformin for diabetes & fatty liver issues? What're symptoms of fatty liver?

Answers: Fatty liver and hep. B are two different things. Hepatitis b doesn't increase your chance for fatty liver, but fatty liver promotes destruction of the liver cells and thus makes the destruction done by hepatitis b virus worse. Metformin is ok to take for fatty liver. Signs of fatty liver are minimal if any. Usually we see elevation of liver enzymes and other tests including viral hep ones are -.

Liver (Definition)

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification.

There's yellow rings around my eyes. I have so symptoms- what could this mean (fatty liver disease, etc.)?

There's yellow rings around my eyes. I have so symptoms- what could this mean (fatty liver disease, etc.)?

A few thoughts: Is it new? If within the sclera/whites of the eye: could be pinguecula. If within iris: could be sign of Wilson's disease. Around the eyes could be a sign of swelling (allergy, kidney problems, medication side effects etc.). Diffuse scleral yellowing or skin yellowing could be several liver abnormalities, pancreatic disease, or blood disorder involving red cells or platelets.

After my physical I found out that I have a fatty liver. Is there any suggestions to help me clean out my liver. Does vitamin C and B12 help? Thanks.

They don't help.: The best thing to do is to eat a healthy diet, with emphasis on weight loss if you are overweight. You should also avoid regular use of medicines known to be toxic to the liver, such as Tylenol, (acetaminophen) and particularly avoid alcohol. Keep regular followup with your doctor for periodic checks on your liver. Good luck!

Not diabetic but all the symptoms. HBA1C & Fasting bc normal. I have fatty liver disease. Alt 91. Can constant worry cause these types of symptoms?

Worry: Worry always goes with concern! Please focus on the Headache and Migraine and have a Psychologist take care of you. Not only will you be better over time, you will pass this on to many family and friends. The control of your worry will be there - the less you worry the better you will be and, trust me, when you are under control yourself you will let all your friends know!

Peristaltic type of pain during lunch only, having fatty liver & ankylosing spondylitis, 25yr old. No symptoms of as at present flwng strict exrcse schd?

Abdominal pain: Before starting a strict exercise regime, I would advise you to first get evaluated for abdominal pain at lunch time. Exercise may worsen this pain. Therefore, get evaluated by your physician to know what's causing this pain and to get treatment.

Symptoms loose stools for over 7 months, diagnosed with fatty liver and now my dr wants to do colonoscopy not too sure why any ideas as to why?

Symptoms loose stools for over 7 months, diagnosed with fatty liver and now my dr wants to do colonoscopy not too sure why any ideas as to why?

Loose stools: I suspect that your doctor is performing the colonoscopy not to find out about your fatty liver, but to look into possible causes of your loose stool. He may want to assess for crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, infectious colitis, or other causes.

Are spider vein a symptom of fatty liver. Alt 64. Ast 50. I have noticed a few small spider like veins on my chest area.

No: Spider angiomata are one of the commonly recognized stigmata of cirrhosis of the liver. They are red skin lesions composed of a central arteriole surrounded by many smaller vessels. There cause might be an alteration in sex hormone metabolism. Though "spiders" are linked with cirrhosis they are not specific for it, and can be seen in other conditions including pregnancy and healthy people.

ALT is 115 and I'm itching. Had us ct and mri along with barrage of other blood tests. Other bloods normal. Scan show fatty liver. Itching a symptom?

ALT is 115 and I'm itching. Had us ct and mri along with barrage of other blood tests. Other bloods normal. Scan show fatty liver. Itching a symptom?

Not yet: In liver disease, itching doesn't happen until you start getting conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. I'd look for some other cause -- it may be something as simple as sensitivity to your laundry detergent. Fatty liver in the absence of hepatitis C, Wilson's, and alcohol abuse is largely genetic; getting into intensive fitness may help a lot. Best wishes.
