Living with Fatty Liver and NASH
Don't worry. It's not a an automatic diagnosis of cirrhosis. My kpa was 16 and I have reason to believe that number is very inflated
My scan was 21 at diagnosis. Now it is 9. Diet and exercise can be effective. Lots of info from my experience here fattyliverfoundation.org/na...
were you diagnosed with nash or cirrhosis.hope your well and best of luck with your health,
Neither. They said mine could be nothing or F2orF3 on fibrosis scale. I was 350lbs at the time of scan and have lost over 100 lbs since. Liver specialist doubts cirrhosis, thinks definite fatty liver with possible Nash. . Awaiting results. We'll see.
Please stay on your diet. I have liver cirrhosis due to hepatitis c and had double pneumonia that was septic. I’m cured of the Hep c and my liver is getting better. Now can drink wine and my blood levels are stable. You’ve got this!!
That's crazy similar. I drink a lot and have hep c. I cleared it but it's returned. I had pneumonia complicated with sepsis. I was in hospital for a month and lived to get wheel chaired home. I just had a fibro scan of 18.6 us that bad? The doctor didn't even say...
It's a high reading I was told it's usually a number that shows permanent damage then I was told my weight could put reading up it's all very strange I've lot 50 lbs and been off alcohol since I had it so I hope I have improved my liver hope your well my friend
This is the first time I've scanned the internet about this info. I'm starting to worry that this is quite high reading. Why hasn't my doctor spelled out to me the seriousness??
I was worried myself my friend but only liver biopsy is conclusive my doctor told me not to worry if they thought I had chirohis they would have told him but my reading was indicative of it he said fibroscans can be inconsistent but push and see because I was 150 kilo and u are lean speak to your doctor and tell him your really stressed
I will. I have a follow at the hospital and they said they would take bloods . Obviously for a more conclusive diagnosis. Thanks for your view.
