Diagnosed back in 2007 (at age of 40) after feeling very tired, and put on about 3 stone is so many months! Blood results showed triglycerides of 15, Cholestral 7.7 (with HDL of just 0.6) Gamma GT of 99 and ALT of 159! Also have high blood pressure. Now on various tablets, which have helped - Now my triglycerides are down to 3.9, cholestral 4.4 (with HDL of 1.0), Gamma GT of 38 and ALT of 66. Not brilliant, but considering where they were a lot better! Had scans at start and recently had further scans. The NAFLD has not progressed into anything more (no scarring yet!), but they did find gallstones. This may explain some of the other symptoms of diarrhea I've been getting. Yesterday I had chronic indigestion and despite taking Gaviscon I'm still suffering today. Is this something to do with the gallstones too? I also really struggle with my weight now (never used to before all this!) and ideally probably need to lose 4 stone, but it's just not shifting. I'm waiting for a knee replacement so cannot exercise very well.
