Newbie saying hello

Hi! I’m new here. I just had a liver biopsy yesterday to try an determine if my NAFLD has progressed to NASH or if my severe inflammation is from something else. I should know in a week. Thank goodness for my astute APRN who pushed for me to see my hepatologist. My previous doctor kept telling me every 3 months for a year to avoid alcohol and Tylenol and I’d be fine. I kept telling him I don’t drink At All or take Tylenol but he was just a broken record!! I don’t see him anymore!!

Looking forward to meeting you all and I have already gotten some good advice here.

Welcome, many of us have had experiences like that with our regular doctor. Feel free to ask anything and to let us know how it goes. This can be a trying experience. If the science about liver disease interests you here is a link with more than you may want to know




HI. I had a liver biopsy last week and I should know more about my progression tomorrow or at the beginning of next week. Good luck and keep us informed and ask any questions.


Biopsy results are in and I have “mild” NASH. Doctor said just to lose weight and nothing else! I think I’ll be proactive and do some research on my own just to make sure it doesn’t progress.
