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...

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!!

Drinking is bad for the liver. Doctor told me I can now have an occasional glass of wine, not liquor.
