Strange!! Fatty Liver
Jan 12, 2003

I have been having a consistent weight of 65 kilos and am not overweight. I am also do not take alcohol and eat very little of non vegetarian food. I do exercise also. During a annual medical checkup I was told that I have a fatty liver discovered during sonography and that there is no solution to this. How does this occur? What diet should I now follow. I am not diabetic and do not experience fatigue or any discomfort. I do consume more sugar. I did not have jaundice so far. I am now conmfused and Pls help. Your website is fantastic and is of great solace.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

The diagnosis of fatty liver by ultrasound is always suspect. A true fatty liver can only be diagnosed by a biopsy. I would suggest an insulin level, a hemoglobin AIC and a GGTP, if those are negative, then it is unlikely that you would have fatty liver! Good luck! DTD
