Brief Answer:
Fatty liver

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Delighted to be able to help.

Fatty liver is a chronic pathology but with medical advice, liver lesions are minor and there is not complications.The main causes of fatty liver are overweight-obesity, chronic alcohol consumption and high blood cholesterol levels.

Consequently, a person with fatty liver must control your weight, avoid alcohol, reduce the consumption of fatty foods and practice physical exercise.

If a person with fatty liver drinks alcohol may appear liver cirrhosis (fatty liver serious complication).If you follow the recommendations mentioned and your doctor checks your cholesterol, GOT and GPT levels in blood every 6 months,probably you will avoid complications of Fatty Liver.

I Hope I have answered your query.

If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.If you do not have any clarifications, please don’t forget to evaluate my answer.I wish you good health.

Brief Answer:
Fatty Liver Check

Detailed Answer:
Hello.Delighted to be able to help.
Your Doctor must check your cholesterol, GOT and GPT levels in blood every six months, even, if he deems it appropriate, may request an abdominal ultrasound.
Reverse fatty liver is very difficult because is a cronic pathology but the important is avoid complications with right diet and physical exercise.
About total cholesterol(250) is not worrisome but if in 3 months with diet and exercise does not decrease may be necessary to take drugs to lower cholesterol levels.
I Hope I have answered your query.If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and , please ,don’t forget to evaluate my answer.
I wish you good health.

I was directed by a doctor to use TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE OINTMENT 0.1% on a dry scally area on my ankle and it basically burnt the area such that is leaking fluid like a burn. The doc then switched me just Vaseline but the area still weeps and is sore. I do have a call into the dr.

Hi Last year I had to arrest a Somalian and I thought I got bit by fleas. I have six raised red spots that itch incessantly. I got eczema as a result and have been using betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% (eleuphrat) This cleared the eczema but the original six spot remain and itch even when scratched till bleeding. The cream helps but does not get rid of them. I have no allergies.

I am 65 yrs. of age and both my cholesterol and triglycerides are elevated. Total cholesterol is 257. Triglycerides are 158. HDL cholesterol is 55. The dr. threw a sample of Crestor to me and gave me a prescription as well. I threw the Crestor in the trash. Started taking Cholestoff *Complete* which is for both dietary and genetic high cholesterol (made from plants) and am suppose to take two twice daily before meals. Also am eating 3/4 cup of Quaker Oat Meal w/ cinnamon sprinkled heavily over it each day and am on a low fat diet. Have been told that niacin also helps bring down cholesterol and am wondering if you would recommend taking it. I also take fish oil daily. Am interested in natural products for lowering it. Haven t been exercising appropriately and need to do that. Both of my parents had normal cholesterol levels but my grandmother passed due to a stroke. What is your recommendation and am I on the correct path? I am totally against statins due to their many side effects. I take medication for thyroid which is Synthroid and have no other major medical problems. Thank you very much
