Have weight loss, severe fatigue, and weakness. Have liver fibrosis, all blood work normal. MVP is low


Hi

I went to the Dr for unexplained weight loss of 12 pounds in a three month period, severe fatigue, and weakness. My over all health is good except for liver fibrosis which is stable. I dont have diabetes, or heart problems. All of my blood work was normal except the MVP, which has never been high. Previous reading going back to three years have all been stable between 8.8 to 9. My platelet count is normal 219. I also do not have iron defficiency, or any other factor that could play a role. I also do not have thyroid disease, that has been ruled out.

thanks

Hi, it appears that you are having weight loss due to liver problem, the liver problem always creates loss of appetite, and weight loss.
First thing i advise you is stop thinking of your health, and practice some diversion procedures like yoga, meditation, reading books, and hearing music, and always try to be engaged in some or other work. thank you.
