Expert:  DoctorAnil replied 12 days ago.

Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Well as you describe, the possible causes may include Fatty liver, Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, Gastritis, Intestinal distension.

You should eat a fat-free diet.

Also, take OTC Prilosec, Mylanta Gas, Metamucil.

And see either Endocrinologist or a Gastroenterologist for further evaluation and management.

Abdominal CT scan/ Ultrasound must be done.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

Thanks for replying back.

I understand your concern.

Most likely your symptoms are associated with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver even if your liver function test is fine.

You should consider a referral to a Gastroenterologist from your GP.
