35 year old male, 5 foot 0 inches, 185lbs- diagnosed with a fatty liver 6 years ago but still struggle to stop drinking. Last 2 years my body feels like it is shaking inside (same sensation i get after strenuous exercise). In addition i have started to get bad heartburn and feel bloated. Since disgnosed with a fatty liver i have felt a consant pressure inside. Is the internal shakng and heatburn related to a orsening fatty liver problem?
Fatty liver does not cause such symptoms. Feeling of pressure around liver area, heartburn & bloating can be due to gallstones. Go for ultrasound abdomen to rule out gallstone disease. Take Capsule omeprazole 40mg once daily. Follow-up with ultrasound report.
Thank you

Ultrasound showed fatty liver 2.5 years ago. Blood testes (Every 6 months) since then have been consistently showing high ALT, high ALT and high Ferretin levels which all points to fatty liver.
In the last 3 months I done a big effort and lost 5 kg. My ALT and AST are normal! ALT=25, AST=22, but ferretin is 665. Has been around the 600 mark since the first blood test.

I have the feeling my fatty liver is not fatty If I may say that as ALT and AST are back to normal, however I am cunfused why ferretin is still high. Would it drop after time or that means still my liver is still damaged?

I think you are wrongly understood the SGPT and SGOT is not the lipid profile test, this enzyme level which shows the liver whether damaged or not, if the value of these coming high then it is indication of some kind of liver disease and that must be rule out, there is...
