Hi me again mark XXXXXXXXXXX. I have now lost 3stone

Customer Question

Hi me again mark XXXXXXXXXXX. I have now lost 3stone and my last alt was 30. I'm due for the next blood work in a week. All my other lfts and fbc are normal. Does this mean I didn't have nash but simple fatty liver ?? Also my ultrasound report originally just said fatty change only ? But the consultant said he thought early nash ??? I'm confused any way have I reversed it. ?

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

I am glad your LFTs are normal.

Dr. David :

with normal LFTs it doesn't sound like you have non alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Dr. David :

have you had a liver MRI scan?

Dr. David :

NAFLD can range from very mild fatty infiltration in the liver or very severe liver inflammation with elevated LFTs

Dr. David :

so it is a wide ranging term and not very specific
