I was diagnosed with NAFLD after a lot of blood tests and an ultrasound. The doctor asked if I had questions. I had lost 75lbs and he told me to try and lose another 20. He told me to Google diet for NAFL, then googled it for me.  Next, he perscribed another blood test to check for if I had fibrosis. It showed I had F1-F2 fibrosis and necroinflamant activity A0 to A1. I see him again in 6 months.

Diagnosed in December 2016 by ER doctor.  Saw my personal physician. Recommended I lose weight. Never could. Lose 5 gain 10 back. Dr suggested I download some apps.  Downloaded MyFitnessPal and Health2sync. Started waking more. Lost 100 pounds in 2017.  Gained 10 lbs in 2018  mostly from stress of caring for my husband with end stage COPD.  I’ve googled lots of healthy foods for NAFLD.  I concentrate on eating healthy.   I also lowered my A1C from 7.9 to 5.5  I feel healthy even with 4 surgeries in 2017 and one surgery in 2018.  Bone spurs in shoulder and thumb and CMC joint on right side and bone spur and 95% tear in rotator cuff on left shoulder. And one toe straighten and excess cartilage removed after callus removal.  Seeing another dr for shots in hands to treat dupuytrens.   Take life one day at a time and do the best y can

I was diagnosed in 2017 by my primary doctor, (after 4yrs of my pain management doctor trying to find the source of all  the inflammation.) I wasn't given any plan or advice about living with nafld, what I learned, I've  learned on my own...however everything ive tried on my own fails. Now I get horrible nausea and hurt  in the liver area almost daily, I've gained over 50lbs and continue to gain weight. Im still going from doctor to doctor trying to get something done!
