I am having a terrible time with my liver. I have been on an anti inflammatory diet for 4 months, and apparently my liver cannot handle the high fat in some of the food. Coconut milk, oil, avocados. Unfortunately, it has healed my hump on my upper back which I thought was due to high cortisol levels.
Grateful for that, but I am still dizzy (coconut oil fixes my dizziness) and my liver has now become very fatty, and hurts. My mother died from colitis and liver failure at 48. The doctors had her on iron pills. Possibly because she showed up anemic due to lupus. I believe lupus was unheard of in the 70's.
How is the liver affected by lupus? This is confusing to me. Did I get these fatty cysts from the high fat in my diet? Or is my liver holding too much iron, and just not working properly. There is iron in all the vegetables I am eating now. What should my iron mg limit be on a daily basis?
I am so confused and upset about all of this. Trying so hard for 3 years to find a solution. A lot of my problems dissipated except for the kidney problems, my liver and my dizziness and breathing difficulties. Is the fatty liver messing up my breathing and my diaphragm. I am trying not to cry....
I guess I need to find a rheumatologist to discuss all this. I have not found a good one, and I have no health insurance at the moment. (I am looking into).
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
