I am looking at your lab results.If the total Bilirubin is 5.2.and the direct bilirubin level is only 1.00
that means there is some degree of destructionbof red blood cells going on.(Hemolysis)
Fatty liver by itself can't be causing this I don't think milk thistle will hurt. I would want
to know what caused fatty liver. If it is due to overweight you can work on losing weight.
If it is from drinking too much alcohol, that should be controlled.The problem of
hemolysis should be looked into.May be a consultation with a blood specialist may be
Good health,
