I’m a 59 year old male. A month or so ago I got Gastroenteritis and landed in the hospital taking all sorts of tests. The first words on the CT report was "The liver is fatty". I was told it wasn't mild, it wasn't severe, it was moderate. I’m told my blood work is within normal range and there is no current loss of liver function. I don't know what this means but I'll guess I need to change course immediately so I am.
I'm not an alcoholic but up until recently I drank hard liquor a lot more than I should and have for quite a few years. No doubt that contributes so I stopped and while I've had a single beer on two occasions since this came down, I’m done with the liquor. I assume my drinking habit contributed so am I something different than NAFLD? Either way, does that make a difference where I go/what I do from here?
My father was an obese, very moderate social drinker and had severe fatty liver. Until about 8 years ago I was very active and in great shape, zero meds. I never in my life thought for a second about my weight or what I ate. I'm a pretty healthy eater but I eat too much and as I got older that finally caught up to me a pound or two a year at a time.
I’m down 10 pounds and have 10 to go to match the “Ideal Weight Chart” but this liver thing is on my nerves. I am reading all sorts of stuff, particularly on foods I can and can't eat and some of it is conflicting. Where can I find clear/food diet information I can trust?
