Re: Need advice about mild fatty liver
Hi there. I recently read an article (sorry if I don't remember what publication it was) that basically said to the effect that skinny individuals can have liver problems/bad cholesterol. The article stated that skinny individuals "think" that because they are skinny, they are less active than overweight individuals. Because of the inactivity, their cholesterol levels get out of whack and they develop fatty liver because of this. I'm not saying this is your exact case though. Just know that not being active and being out of shape can have big implications on our health.
I, myself, WAS an active person (gym/sports/etc.) but for the past year, stopped all of it because of my new job. Well, because of that, my body basically turned on me and now I have a fatty liver...on top of having high triglycerides, low HDL, high uric acid...basically metobolic syndrome or Syndrome X. So...now I'm back to eating really REALLY healthy...I'm active again (walkin/jogging 2-3 miles a day/5 times a week)...taking supplements (milk thistle for liver, omega-3 for liver and cholesterol levels, pantethine for cholesterol levels)...and am slowly beginning to feel better. From what I've read and been told, it's a slow process to heal.
You don't have any pains do you? What is your triglyceride level?
