Update: Lowered FibroScan Scores

Hello, All—just popping in to say the eating guidelines from this board and regular moderate exercise have worked for me. Although the struggle is real for us true sugar addicts, it is worth it! My liver enzymes are now normal, glucose normal, cholesterol normal, etc. gout issues remain (genetics), so I’ve had to go back on allopurinol. Normal liver enzymes indicate no new damage. 😊

Most notably, I’ve kept off 20 lbs lost and yesterday’s FibroScan gives me hope: previous fibrosis score of F4 is now low F3–(Doc’s calling it F2/3). Steatosis score down as well but just a little, still severe. FibroSure labwork in the mix looks like that fatty liver isn’t going anywhere, but exercise will help.

I share this to encourage you: it’s working for me. I have the benefit of great docs, a supportive family, and desire to see grandchildren someday. I recognize everyone doesn’t have that, but sheer will works, too.

Stay safe, all.

What were your original scores and what was your diagnostic? I’m 38 with a diagnosis of F3 and it’s freaking me out.

Ok, I was reading at your previous post. Was yours Hep C related? Is that why you were able to reverse it?

Hi Twirler

How nice to hear from you. We appreciate the encouragement you provide. This isn't an easy journey but we can make a difference. Kudos to you. The fibrosis is the most important thing to get under control and with persistence you are likely to be able to manage the fat as well. I hope you continue to share your progress.

A debt of gratitude to you and the information you provided. I fully believe Vitamin E, olive oil, coffee, no beef, nearly no white food, and daily moderate exercise are key. I didn’t know about the first 3 until I came here and was gifted Wayne’s Wisdom. Enjoying the journey.

Stay safe!

hi. Wayne: Fibrosis is controlled through the diet and exercise as well as the fat, is that your understanding of this disease.

Yes, both are important. A word about exercise. Strength training helps fibrosis and cardio best for fat but eat your vegetables in either case.

I am so, so happy for you. Gives us hope. I was just told i am F3 and also have to lose 20 lbs. Already lost 10. Fear is a good motivator. Thank you for sharing.
