Hi everyone I am new here and I would like to share some of my feelings with you here in this form. Any of your thoughts are appreciated . My partner's latest Fibroscan score ( 6.6 kPa) was higher than he had the year before ( 4.8 kPa ) . His recent liver enzyme test was normal, but he is worrying that this might progress into fibrosis as anything above 6 kPa is considered abnormal. Two years ago his ultrasound showed a mild fatty change in his liver ,his ALT was above the normal range . His diagnosis was NAFLD/NASH., but after excercising and dieting he was happy that his liver enzymes were back to normal and second Ultrasound showed no fat. He has never been overweight , he just carried some excess weight around the abdomen. In one month he dropped in size from 75 kg to 65kg which he thinks that this rapid weight loss has made his condition worse. Importance of loosing weight gradually and slowly is well documented in medical reports and NHS website. Naturally he is upset and angry with his doctor not telling him about this. He is extremely anxious and depressed , he is refusing to take any antidepressants as this could make his liver worse. He has done everything necessary by changing his lifestyle and was hoping to get a good result with the Fibroscan which is regarded the latest reliable tool of measuring the liver stiffness. Unfortunately the result was 2 score up from his last reading under almost a year. Now he believes he has no hopes left and his condition will progress further. I am trying to keep his spirit up but he is chronically depressed and I don't know how or what else I could do.
