Fatty Liver

I recently had a cat scan of my back & it was discovered that I have a fatty liver. Of course my Dr didn’t tell me this, I found it in my chart. About 3 yrs ago I had an MRI of my back & it showed a 16mm spot on my liver but they could not specify what it was, of course the Dr didn’t tell me this either, I found it in my chart. And no one ever said anything about it. What am I looking at here, do I need to request further treatment, maybe a biopsy? My sister died from aggressive breast cancer at 33. Someone please reply.

I am very sorry to hear your doctor didn't tell you about the fatty liver. This happened to me as well and I went 7 years not knowing I had it.

There is no treatment for fatty liver. The only thing you can do to help reverse your fatty liver is life style change. They don't normally do liver biopsy if you just have fatty liver but a fibro scan is a good test..

Keep to a clean healthy diet of lean meats, fresh fruits and veggies. Avoid simple carbs or greatly limit them, no added sugars. Reading labels at the grocery store is a must. Get down to a healthy weight if not already. Excercise, even is it's only walking for 30 mins a day. If you drink alcohol, stop.
