What causes lack of appetite, fatigue, nausea and pain in liver area?
You need to have ultrasound abdomen and liver function tests
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all, it is sad to know what you had gone through. Based on the history you have shared, it is quite possible that you have been suffering from additional issues apart from H.pylori infection. Ideally a coexisting liver problems should be ruled out along with blood screens like liver function tests along with serum amylase and lipase. Ultrasound abdomen to look for any anomaly in liver, gall bladder or pancreas should be done.
The association with antibiotics in some cases is possible but other causes of liver issues like viral serologies and metabolic causes should also be ruled out. We can safely attribute this problem only to H. pylori, if these tests turn out to be normal, then next resort should be to go for Oesophagoduodenoscopy or endoscopy to look for any ulcer in stomach or small intestines and to get biopsy if present. Meanwhile keep taking the regimen for H. pylori alongwith omeperazole and use some motility agents like domperidone or mebeverine. Avoid fizzy drinks, spicy foods and junk meals. Use more fibre containing foods and try to take small but frequent meals. Wishing you a speedy recovery. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.
Viral serologies mean hepatitis B and C which can cause chronic liver disease
Hi! Thanks for such a valuable feedback. By viral serologies we mean, those viruses which can causes such derangement of liver function disease which are seen in chronic liver disease. These viruses include hepatitis B and C viruses.
Similarly by metabolic causes we mean any derangement of lipids, iron or copper metabolism in some diseases causes their extra deposition in liver leading to the picture of liver function tests which was in your case. Though these may not be the cause still relevant workup may be needed to be done to evaluate and rule out these.
