Fatty Liver

Hello All,

In January 2008, I was diagnosed with a Fatty Liver. Actualy found that out by accident through a Ultra Sound, they were checking my Gallbladder out. Gallbladder is fine. They thought they might of seen something else and I then had to have a CT Scan of my Liver. That just showed a Fatty Liver as well.

I just had another Ultra Sopund done yesterday due to me being very ill with Chest Pains, nausea, Back pain, then severe vomiting. They thopught it maybe my my Gallbladder again. Well the results are back, and my Galldbladder is fine, but my Fatty Liver has gotten worse and my doctor wants me to see a specialist.


What exactly causes this Fatty Liver thing? I do have a cholesteral issue and have been on Crestor 5 mg for it and has worked. Except that my good cholesteral wont seem to go up.
Other meds I am on is Savella, Metformin(pre-diabetese) Amitryptaline,Estroderm Patch, Pres, Vit D.

Is this condition hereditary? My father has it as well.

Is this dangerous?

Thanks
