Doctor didn't tell me much

My doctor told me my blood work was concerning to her. She sent me for an ultra sound. Her staff called and told n=me I have a fatty liver and enlarged spleen. When I asked what can I do. They stated loose weight. Now I am diabetic and have lost 20 lbs since my diagnosis a little over a year ago. It isn't that easy to loose weight as I also have COPD and take steroids.

Hi Kroop

You are not alone. So many people who are T2D also have liver disease. The diet advice is pretty similar, lots of fruits and vegetable, low salt, no sugar, complex carbs, you know that drill I imagine. A key element for the liver is limit the saturated fats and get plenty of unsaturated fats. The combination can be a challenge for sure.
