Your husband is under weight for his height, considerably so.
I don't know if this weight loss
happened during the past month
and a half. You state that he is a light smoker ,half a pack a day,
but if he has been a smoker for a very long time , that is of concern.
I am glad that he does not drink and we can eliminate that as a
possible cause of fatty liver
. Poor nutrition can cause fatty changes
in the liver. Diabetes
, obesity, other metabolic disorders can do this.
Certain medications like NSAIDs, Ibuprofen
family of drugs can cause fatty liver. In women, during
pregnacy they can develop fatty liver. If your husband does not have
fever,chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
, it is probably not an infection.
He seems to have developed an increased sensitivity of the skin
You mention that he was recently started on medication for blood
pressure. Look at all the possible side effects listed .
I am glad he is scheduled for a CT-Scan. I hope they will do a chest CT
along with an abdominal CT. to rule out anything serious.
I am sure that he had a complete blood work done by the doctor.
Find out about his liver tests, Protein levels, and his blood count to see
if he is anemic. My personal feeling is, some of these tests could be
He should be taking a good Super B-Complex vitamin along with Vit-E 800 i.u.
daily. He should be on a high protein diet ,may be with some supplements
like Ensure or Ensure Plus or similar drinks 2-3 times a day.
I wish him well.
