I have an enlarged fatty liver. Been years. I am having more testing done. I cry every night about 3-4 hours after dinner. I get sharp shooting pains near or in liver. Still waiting for all tests to be done and results. I do know I have IBS, GERD, Barrett's Esophagus, gas, bloating, some bouts of diarrhea. I am tired of the pain. I get scared to eat.

 I was told in 2014 that there was a cyst on my liver, and that I had fatty liver disease. They found it when doing a PET scan to see where or if my cancer had spread, I was newly diagnosed at the time. No plan or explanations to go on, with the exception that I needed to lose weight. I have scans periodically, still a cancer patient, they say the cyst is not growing and is no big deal. They never mention the fatty liver.

Hello everyone I was diagnosed with NASH last year after liver biopsy. From what one been told is NASH is the second stage of NAFLD and that most doctors think NASH and NAFLD are the same but they are misinformed. NASH Is fatty liver with inflammation. There is no cure and thru they don’t know why some people NAFLD turns to NASH, and some do not. They say that only about 10% of people who have NAFLD will progress to NASH. It het frustrated they Drs just use ot yo the side and say loose weight and don’t take it seriously.

My liver is getting bigger and all the doctor can say is try to lose weight, because there isn't ant medicine to help me.  I have been trying to lose weight for 2 years  and all I can do is gain more.  I have been swelling up at times.

I was diagnosed with a fatty liver. Sometimes I get a sharp pain on my right side and it's unbearable at times. I've tried the Mediterranean diet and I haven't lost any weight.

My daughter was diagnosed with fatty liver several years ago. All they said was for her to lose weight also. Diagnosis came after positive hep test and they told me it could be cuz of liver. They did ultrasound and found that's what it was- false positive result for hep d/t fatty liver. She is 16 now. Anyone here have suggestions for her?
