Cholesterol and fatty liver

Worrysome1 profile image

4 LFTS in normal range and US good but fatty liver detected. Doctors say liver definitely not showing cirrhosis but I have these symptoms. Constipation since January, I have to use Lactolose, hair loss and eyes not as sharp as they were at times with floaters. My cholesterol has increased greatly in the last 6 months. GP not happy with me but sending me to Gastro. I’m so low and anxious, has anybody else been like this?

Do you have thyroid issues and take thyroxine? Cholesterol will definitely go higher if you aren’t at your optimum dose. Coincidentally I suffered from blurred vision and floaters starting three years ago. Just focused this morning and the floaters are not in my sight.

No not thyroid. Thanks for replying.

Any chance you’re just getting older? It happens. I’ve had floaters in my eyes since I was a kid. Sometimes they’re gone, sometimes they flare up big time and it’s distracting. And as a nurse and honestly just as a human too, the older people get the more difficult and focused they are on bowel movements. They’re either going too much or not enough. And hair and eyes go with age. How’s your diet? Just asking because you mentioned cholesterol level. Do you have a liver disease diagnosis? It sounds like you are worrying a lot. I do that too. Hence the name. But sometimes it’s good to have someone out your worry into check.

Just been for second ultrasound on liver and told everything fine but I’m still here doubting. Does high cholesterol point to liver disease? I’m 65.

It really doesn't sound like liver disease to me. Liver disease you get diarrheas' from eating things the liver can't digest. Eye floaters aren't liver. I suggest you get your colon checked out. You should have that every 5 years, you might have palps.

It is a small tumor like cyst in your colon, most the time non cancerous. It can obstruct bowel movements. I'm not a dr., but you problems do not sound liver related. You might have other gastro issues.

I started this worrying journey thinking I had a prolapse. My cholesterol shouldn’t have gone up since January though, my hair loss etc. Praying the US was right yesterday. He’s supposed to know his stuff. I appreciate your help.

I think polyps.

Could be.
