It's been a long time since I've been on the forum but I thought I should share some more positive news. I was corncerned that I had cirrhosis that had been brought on by drinking a bit too much over a few years and I had a history of elevated enzymes. Well the gp diagnosed me with health anxiety as I'm not diabetic yet (despite a few high blood sugar results) and thought I was just nuts and perfectly healthy. Well 3 months after giving up drinking I had a blood test and nothing was elevated at all and she wouldn't refer me for a scan and sent me home on citalopram for anxiety . Quite by chance one week later I had a medical and my alt and ggt were 5x normal and ast 3x. My ast returned to normal but two months on from this my alt is still 25% over normal. I was referred to a consultant I had a scan which showed no scarring and a normal looking liver. He doesn't want to send me for a fibroscan as he thinks I have a sensitive liver and am prone to reacting to any fat on my liver or viruses and the treatment would be the same for nafld anyway. He has told me to lose weight which will be hard as I'm down to 1/2 stone over ideal weight. He says it is not my fault I'm probably genetically prone and he's not worried about me in the next ten years but I need to try to get the inflammation down and keep the fat off and don't drink much if at all. I've been lucky to find this out now. I've started running 3x a week and cross train 2x a week. I'll never drink again and I'm not find that too hard as it's been nearly 6 months and I've not really had any huge urge to drink. I hope I can get this under control and extend my life to watch my kids grow up. I've been given a chance to try to do something and I'm taking it. If any one has any advice on diet and supplements that have worked for them I'd be very grateful to receive it.
