Hello, this is my first post on this site. I am so worried. I was diagnosed with fatty liver disease in January due to slightly elevated ast and alt levels. I had blood work done the end of June and the levels were even higher ast 83 and alt 139. Was seeing doctor because of pain and fullness under ribs on right side. Was sent to GI and did more blood work everything normal except Actin smooth muscle was positive at 26. I have liver biopsy nest week. (Very nervous). I do not drink but am obese. I read one article on the internet that said people with high f-actin had worse prognosis. I need to know if this is true and what to expect in the future. Thanks

  • I was diagnosed the same ,I am now 12st 8lb ,I kept to a stricted diet and exercize ,for 2 months ,my blood was over 2000 when I first went to the doctors I was a drinker ,and the doctor said I will need a transplant ,I kept to the diet took milk thistle and dandelion tincha ,turmeric garlic lots of water and exercised also stopped drinking ,i went for a 5 mile walk every day some times twice a day ,lots of fruit and veg ,went to the doctors Friday ,and my blood was 43 ,i couldn't beleave it ,i was over the moon ,and the doctor was as well ,im still waiting for a scan ,but what i say is the truth,and i keep thinking that the blood has been mixed up with someone else .so if you don't want your liver to get worse or even die ,you have to stick by the rules ,i looked most the things up on liver cirrhosis and took action street away ,cirrhosis is fatty liver can turn into cirrhosis , so you need to try to do the same as me if you want to recover ,i chat with a few people on health unlocked , the is no magic pill for liver desease just you and a proper diet and exersize ,that a fact .good luck ,and hope all goes well mike
