Fatty liver
Sep 29, 2010

What are implications of fatty liver in terms of liver function, long term concerns, etc. On atripla, warfarin, and many other drugs.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Fatty liver disease can cause scarring and even cirrhosis -just like alcohol and viral hepatitis.

None of the medications worry me about your liver.

I would stay trim, exercise and get your cholesterol and triglycerides checked.

Am I at risk
Chances of False Positive Hep C test?
