fatty liver, no big deal????
 
I have been sick with nausea, diarrhea and weird sensation in my right upper abdomen for almost 3 weeks... Had blood work and CT scan and they came back
With fatty liver.... I've had 3 drs tell me it's no big deal and one say one day everyone in United States will have it... That's not what I've read and I feel horrible.. Can't it worsen? and what kind of dr should I see to get real answers or help?

I've had a couple doctors tell me it was nothing, and I've also had a couple doctors that are more concerned about it.

For me, I am a 28 female who isn't really even overweight and I have fatty liver. They just told me that if it continues one day I can get cirrhosis. I am currently losing 15 pounds to see if that helps.

My doctor said it takes years and years before it gets to ciriosis - my doctor and specialist from John Hopkins told me to go to weight watchers to get rid of it.
