From your history , I understand that three of your cousins have been
diagnosed to have "Fatty Liver
". You also need to find out if they are
,diabetic ,and have high lipid levels like high cholesterol
triglycerides. If they meet this criteria , they fit "Metabolic Syndrome
description and this can run in families although it is not hereditary
in a strict sense.
If the cause of death was advanced liver disease , it had to be cirrhosis
which is very advanced stage that could lead to coma and death. You
need to find out about that also.
As prevention , watch your weight. Excercise regularly, keep your lipids
down by proper diet (Low fat and restricted carbohydrates, especially
concentrated sugars) and good protein intake. You should also be on
Super B-Complex Vitamin, along with Vit-E 800 i.u. daily.
You can get a base line ultrasound of the liver along with all the liver
function tests, complete lipid profile
, check for diabetes including blood
sugar and HbA1C level.
Hope this gives you a starting point which you can discuss with your own
doctor and act appropriately.
I wish you the very best.
