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 Sir/Ma am I am 35 years old. 8 years back I tested HbsAg positive. Then the doc made me do a complete Hepatitis B profile and found that I have HbeAg antibodies in sufficient amount and DNA tested negative for Hep B. Also I tested negative for Hep C. But after an USG the doc mentioned that I have fatty liver and ever since my SGPT remains a bit on the higher side. Before it used to be like 86 .. recently it is 68. The doc said it is because of fatty liver and is not of acute concern. He also prescribed Udiliv 150 mg once daily for me .. Just want advice on whether I am on the right track Thanks

I have been consuming alcohol for last 10 yeras. Last one year only intermittent consumption. LFT readings are high after consumption, gets within normal reading within 2 weeks of stopping. Stopped conumption on 25th January. LFT readings on 13th February was- Bilirubin total 0.6, direct 0.2. SGOT 37, SGPT 47. On 23rd February LFT showed elevated bilirubin - 1.2,0.3. 35, 44. No alcohol intake during the period. Ultrasound scan taken on 26th showed liver, normal in size, with fatty infiltration. From 26th February till 12th March consumed alcohol. LFT taken today 27th March shows, bilirubin 1.2. 0.3, Sgot 39, SGPT 42. Usally after abstainance for two weeks, bilirubin should have been well within normal levels. Does this indicate any liver damage or beginning stage of cirrhosis? kindly advise. Now after three weks bilirubin levels are again normal at 0.7.

My 2 yr child has been diagnosed with an enlarged liver and we are doing test at the hospital. First LFT had AST and ALT at 140 and 163, 5 days later it was 138 and 155 while Total Bilirubin was 1.3. Tested negative for all the Hepatitis tests. CT scan did not reveal any masses. He has pain while passing stool and is OK once that is done. Is on a fat free diet with lots of veggies and fresh fruit juice. After 7 days of the last LFT there was another LFT done for which the results will be out tomorrow. At this moment there is no yellowing of skin or eyes but he does seem sluggish. What could the problem potentially be? Thank You for your answer in advance!!!
