I had my bloods done a couple of weeks ago and they came back normal. Then I had my fibroscan yesterday and the nurse doing it told me my kpa was down from 11.5 last year to 6.5 today. I'm normal guys!!!!! Well pleased.

hi Jacky that is wonderful news .. will you please share with me what your initial symptoms were and what you did to reverse your fatty liver? I was just diagnosed yesterday with NAFLD.

My GP referred me to the gastric clinic as my blood test came back that my liver enzymes were raised. At the time I had no symptoms that I could pin on liver disease.I had a fibroscan and turns out I had fibrosis stage 3 - which is one off cirrhosis (and in the USA they actually call in pre-cirrhosis)

I read up on what to eat and just threw loads of veg on my plate, ate oats for breakfast drank no alcohol ( I was NAFLD but the liver doesn't like it anyway)

At this point though I wasn't losing any weight, and that was actually the one thing my Gastro doc told me to do.

So I scrapped that plan and started counting calories - my physio actually told me this was the best way to diet, nothing's off the plate, eat what you want, just stop at your limit. So, 2 stone later here I am. I have no idea if it was the veggies or the losing weight that did it. But I feel great and I'm going to lose some more.

And thank you, it is wonderful news.

I would think every country has their own way of doing things but I think you should have a fibroscan soon.

I had a ultrasound ten years ago and it was mentioned that they could see I had a fatty liver (I thought at the time that I thought that was rather obvious as I am obese and thought no more of it) they didn't say it was something to address as they then found I had a bursting gallbladder and after that it was all about getting my gallbladder out. Ten years on - this.

So I think the best thing you can do is lose weight - by any means possible, lol. It seems to be obesity that is the problem. I still am, so I need to hit that further, and I will, I feel so much better for that 2 stone I think I'll another 2.

Good luck on your liver journey MaMthombeni
