I think most Doctors need to be trained in knowing the real symptoms of fatty liver disease and the consequences of the symptoms going unchecked. They say its benign well it might be if the fat content is low like 30 percent but once fatty liver gets severe like I have at 70 percent it can cause all sorts of gastrointestinal problems like pain nausea vomiting etc. If the liver gets so congested with fat it can totally clog up and the blood must find a new way around the liver which can cause toxins to leak in to the blood causing encephalopathy its happened to me. Vasoconstriction of the arms and legs with raised white blood cell count can happen as well...the body thinks its under attack .....and the scary thing is the Doctors and Hospitals don't know how to diagnose it.... since I have stopped eating fat I have no more bloated stomach and I feel so much better some of the time. Thank God there is the internet and websites like this so we can access this critically important information.
