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?

doctor1 MD

Hi
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

Hi,
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?

doctor1 MD

You have fatty liver problem in past. But now your AST and ALT levels are normal. SO don't worry about fatty liver. It is normal now. Your ferritin level is high. But it is acute phase protein. So ferritin level is...

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
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...

Hello, for years now I have nausea during and after eating and a lot of times when I m not eating. I wake up with bad indigestion every day and suffer all day with it whether I eat or not. A lot of times it feels like something is stuck. I ve had my gallbladder checked and it functions properly. I was told I do have a fatty liver. I ve lost about 15 pounds since November without trying because of the nausea and not being able to finish eating. Could it be possible that I have a food allergy even though I don t have to eat to feel bad? I also have bloody stools and lately loose bowels almost not making it to the bathroom. I ve had 2 colonoscopies with normal results. I could go on but I think this is enough to start with.
