Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Fatty liver as such is not a serious issue, it wont cause you any harm but it suggests that your Body has more cholesterol level. Just relax and kindly not panic. If you are on medications just take them as directed by your Doctor and go for regular follow up. You may want to eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy veggies. Exercise regularly and go for regular brisk walks for an hour daily. This will burn your calories and body fat. Avoid junk and high calorie foods. Try reducing your weight. Check your Lipid profile. If it is higher, you will need medications.
Wish you Good Health.

hello,

my friend you should take it seriously.but dont worry its not so serious.if it is treated early then no problem.as u said u r non alcoholic. it appears to b due to obesity,or some drugs or infection.so treatment of fatty liver depends on what is causing it, and generally, treating the underlying cause will reverse the process of steatosis if implemented at early stage. take balanced diet. avoid fried and junk food. exercise regularly.my advice is consult a physician.he wil examine u in detail. you may go through some lab tests.accordingly medications will be given by him.but diet exercise and some breathing exercises are important . follow yhem along with medications given by ur dr.

Hello, I am a 39 yr old male, Height is about 6ft 3in, and weigh about 260 lbs. I am a smoker who has been diagnosed with emphazema. They also found a nodule on right lung. At last scan there was no change in size. I also am a drinker and have been diagnosed with a fatty liver. Unfortunately, I havent been able to quit as of yet. In the last 2 weeks I have felt a pressure around my chest and neck. Pretty much right on my collar bone and right shoulder area. Is it possible that my liver has swollen to be putting pressure on my right lung?

Hi, mday I answer you ouhealrth queries right now ? Please type your query here...my baby had a blood smear with a few acanthocytes. He was born at 36 weeks and small but has gained weight very well and is now 75th percentile. He is otherwise well but has mild persistant jaundice. His platelet count is 725 which is high. He is also being treated for iron and folate deficiency. Donthe acanthocytes always indicate some kind of disease or could it be related to his iron deficiency?

I have hashimoto s with varying symptoms & new changes...for example elevated Bilirubin levels which my doc feels is Gilberts syndrome & not associated with my Hashimotos. I have very high iron levels & high satruation of iron (69% saturation upon last blood test... My GP doesn t seem extremely concerned, we did an iron study to test for Haemochromatatis which was negative... however I am fatigued more then usual, I do have a slight change to my skin colour & an unexplained itchy rash on my elbows & arms which in recent weeks has subsided, I have had more recent vision issues that have fuzzed out my sight & made me feel rather nauseous & giddy for minutes at a time...I do get headaches regularly & I am feeling like there is more going on then just my hashimotos. I do continue to get all the hashimotos related symptoms, I feel the cold & get pins & needles in my fingers & toes, my memory fails me, my hair continues to fall out, my heart rate & blood pressure has been effected & I get abdominal pain regularly but from time to time I will get lower back pain that resembles that of a kidney infection just not as severe... I am concerned & feel there has to be some form of connection between these things...or am i just going mad?
