I'll try be brief, I'm an ex alcoholic quit 2012 liver levels dropped to almost normal...and then began to rise.
I have bad flank pain for which I took painkillers and it worsened gallstones were suspected and scanned for one was found as was an enlarged spleen but liver/kidneys normal (april 13).
Gall surgeon said flank pain not indicative of gall pain but removed it anyway (dec 13)
Still in pain was given omeprazole ( pain worsened) scanned again right kidney is said to 'appear duplex' very confused at this point. Bloods find borderline ferritin, anti smooth muscle antibodies and raised IgA referred to hepatology. The 5 min consultation concluded 'fatty liver', was confirmed by letter suggesting dietary advice ( not included) and follow up in 6 months.
ALT at the moment is 53, tinnitus, dry eyes, restricted movement in flank due to inflammation, painful joints, and night sweats.
I'm 42 overweight but have lost 3st in 2yrs in Leeds UK, has anyone any help/advice please?
