Liver palm!: Palmar erythema is associated with estrogen levels, and pregnant women will develop this. In a normal person, liver illness slows the degradation of Estradiol, causing levels to build up. In males, liver disease does the same. Palmar erythema is most often not pathologic. However, you do have mild liber enzyme elevations. Many causes, but the most common causes a deal with is fatty liver. ...Read more

Have fatty liver disease. And have pain in my upper right side. I'm tired all the time and my hands are itchy. I'm not eating much. What do I do?

See your physician: "fatty liver disease" is usually benign but can be associated with other conditions that can place patients at risk for long term liver disease, some of which can be clinically silent. Your physician can evaluate your symptoms within the context of specific laboratory values and your physical examination to help determine your risk profile and determine the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

What happens to the plasma membrane of the red blood cells of humans with liver disease to cause the formation of acanthocytes? Thank you.

What happens to the plasma membrane of the red blood cells of humans with liver disease to cause the formation of acanthocytes? Thank you.

Change in lipids: The liver is responsible for general metabolism in the body, and the plasma membrane has a complex collection of lipids that are responsible for its "fluidity" and shape. It is believed that the apolipoproteins are abnormal in liver disease and cause fragility of the rbc membrane causing fragmentation and formation of acanthocytes.

Having a history of fatty liver disease, should I still consume a glass or half of red wine a day for cardio-protective effects?

Having a history of fatty liver disease, should I still consume a glass or half of red wine a day for cardio-protective effects?

May be not: Fatty liver is usually caused by high storage of triglycerides -- and this is caused by too much calorie intakes from perhaps diet or alcohol and usually the liver enzymes is mildly elevated. So, I don't think I would advise you to drink wine for cardioprotective at this time, instead I would advise you to take up exercise and healthy diet and weight management --. ...Read more

17 month old in day care, red spotty rash on abdomen and back, spreading to arms and legs. Temp 39.4 (17 days ago), think that was hand foot mouth?

Unlikely: HFM can have spots/blisters in these locations. However, the presentation usually starts with small blisters in the back of the mouth, followed by distinctive blisters (oval and grayish) located in other sites. The fingers/hand/wrist are common as are the foot and ankle. The peri-anal region is also common. The rash you describe is non specific and could have been many things, HFM is unlikely. ...Read more
