Hi, I was diagnosed in October 2019 and I've been doing pretty well despite the chaos of lockdown and everything else. But recently since things have started going back to normal I've been really struggling with fatigue. I can barely get out of bed in the morning and by the afternoon I struggle to keep my eyes open. I can't get anything done.

Has anyone else been through this? I didn't know that fatigue was part of fatty liver so I wonder if it may be something else... How do you deal with the fatigue if you also have it? 

Thanks for any replies!

@MJ2015 Hi MJ2015, thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry to hear you're dealing with fatigue. Last year we conducted a survey on chronic fatigue among Carenity members, you may find it helpful: Chronic Fatigue: Patients' Experiences and Solutions.

Hi members, how are you today?   Do you suffer from chronic fatigue? Do you think it's related to NASH or NAFLD? What do you do to deal with it? 

Feel free to share your experiences and tips in the comments below!

Take care,

@MJ2015  I struggle with this as well, I think it's common among us NASH/NAFLD patients. My doctor more or less told me that there's nothing we can do about it. I've tried to improve my sleep to help it, so I've cut out caffeine and alcohol entirely and I try turn off my screens by 8 each night. I also try to get a good walk or hike in each day to help, but it's not always possible, especially in the winter months.

I am fatigued I would love to stay in bed it feels goof. But I refuse to lay down i push myself till it hurts. I am slow partly because I'm 71 almost 72. Docter has me on vitamin D. I cut working to 12 hours a day that keeps me going. Laying around is not good. Push yourself follow the rules diet stay away from smelling cleaning products no alcohol not even in your mouthwash no dairy, red meat ,salt  drink water but don't drink
