One dr said its pulled muscles but I dont believe him. Another said its fatty liver disease after I did blood tests and an abdominal ultrasound. I am tired of this. He said there is no treatment for fatty liver disease. My liver enzeymes has been 3x the max value since I was 18y.o. 135lb.
I don’t drink and I don’t do drugs, not even smoking but started vaping at 26y.o., now I am 31y.o.
I feel like my liver is being cut and dying.
Is it on the left or right side? I get pain on my left side the dr told me it was a pulled muscle too which is bs
Both sides but upper only. In my case I am sure its the fatty liver disease as it can cause liver pain and liver cirrhosis I read.
Both my uncle and grandfather died of pancreatic cancer. My uncle died at 35-36y.o. of it. But I don’t think I have pancreatic cancer as our family Dr tested us all for pancreatic cancer when I was 17y.o., no cancer. Now I am 31y.o. though.
The only real advice that I can give here is to try to lose weight through diet and exercise. Maybe also get checked for diabetes since I think that this is also a risk factor.
Not sure that there is much else you can do for fatty liver disease.
Your gonna have to make lifestyle changes. I have an uncle thats about 400 pounds. His health is not good.
He doesnt have any mental health issue but all he does is sit an a chair all day.
His ankles/calve are just too swollen
I had the same problem and high liver enzymes since I started going to the Dr on my own at like 17y.o., I was like 127lb.
My liver enzymes has been high all my life even before sz when I was skinny 127-135lb. Dr made me tons of tests then found fatty liver.
Dont have any advice to give but realise im on the same path
I had an abdominal ultrasound about ten years ago and they said i had mild fatty liver. I never really thought about it again until now
There’s no magic pill, but diet and exercise to lose weight do wonders for most. Mine is a lot better, but it’s never going back to how it was.
If it’s fatty liver, treatment for that is diet and exercise. I have fatty liver, too.
Gallbladder is on your up right, too. A gallbladder motility test is not invasive, but takes several hours.
I suggest you go to a GI doctor and get it checked out.
But you don’t seem to want to, so I don’t know what to tell you, except get it checked out. The procedures are not really invasive. It just takes effort. We can’t do anything for you, unfortunately. I’ve had a very long history with all my organs so I do know something about it all.
I did a complete abdominal ultrasound, the only problem they found was moderate fatty liver, I read the report and it said steatosis.
Abdominal scan doesn’t measure gallbladder motility. That’s a special test. You could have decreased motility. They have you eat and over the next few hours scan the digestive system with a machine. If you have upper right pain, it’s worth mentioning to your doctor.
A lot of psych meds and an inactive life can decrease digestive motility. If you are in a prone position, it will slow your digestive tract. It is true that exercise will help that a lot, especially if you exercise after eating, or at least sit up for a couple hours after eating.
