Hi gang, this is my favorite liver forum. After years of pain meds, and bad bad foods, I have a " mild" fatty liver. It does NOT feel mild! I don't do pain meds anymore. I've changed my diet. But I am morbidly obese. ( Not just a love for yummy food, but two psych meds that made me gain tons!)
Lss, I won't have insurance for about a month or so. I have chronic ruq pain, pain under left ribs too. Mild nausea, shortness of breath, and always tired. The Dr said, lose weight. So I'm on ketogenic w intermittent fasting. I was told that fasting is bad for FL. But I also heard it's good!! What is it? Good or bad. I didn't tell the Drs I overused pain meds, I believe I did some damage. My new symptom is itching! I take Benadryl and that helps.
Guys, I'm miserable! In 6 months I went from feeling normal to feeling diseased! I have a walker and cane. I'm only 52.
My questions are: is fasting lightly bad? When I do get insurance, do I demand biopsy even though my blood works good? As I'm on USA nhs, they tend to not give you expensive tests. Losing weight is my daily goal, but is there some drink, or herb that can ease my pain and nausea?
My FB group scolded me for fasting, but don't you think no crap going thru your liver for 28 hours is a good thing? Mixed info on this. Ty blt
