I too have fatter liver, for about 8 years.
 
I can no longer drink alcohol without becoming unwell.  I also had a problem when taking the drug azathiroprine.  It affected my li8ver and I was jaundiced.

Liver problems are a common side effect or 'extraintestinal lesion' (EIL) of IBD. Milk thistle might help. This is from "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine" by Michael Murray and Joseph Pizzorno, page 594.

"Serious liver disease (i.e. sclerosing cholangitis, chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis, etc.) is also a common EIL, affecting three to seven percent of people with IBD. If individuals are demonstrating liver enzyme abnormalities, they should take silymarin, a group of flavonoid compounds derived from milk thistle (silybum marianum). These compounds exert tremendous effect on protecting the liver from damage as well as enhancing detoxification processes."
Male/60 DX IBD in Feb08. No meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Remission since Mar10. Psyllium seed mixed with VSL3 is very helpful. Food journal instead of SCD or Paleo.

Lots of fruit & vegetables (but no plums or cruciferous), no soda, no gluten, no HFCS, no xylitol or sorbitol, no trans fat, no shellfish, few processed foods, no carrageenan.
Probiotics, fish oil, multivitamin, extra D3, K2, E complex, phos choline, magnesium, boswellia, curcumin, glutamine.

I was just diagnosed in April with a fatty liver via UltraSound and again with CT scan. The GI was not very concerned about it, but then I was in the hospital for a problem with a spinchter connected to the bile duct so she had her hands full.

Hi Ne Ne,

I was told I had a fatty liver a year ago based off an ultrasound, however I was just diagnosed with Primary Biliary Cirrhosis last week. PBC is another autoimmune disease, lucky me. This year my AMA was high on a blood test so another ultrasound was performed. The ultrasound showed an enlarged portal duct from the liver to the gallbladder. The final diagnosis was confirmed with a liver biopsy.

Fatty liver disease is very common in this country so don't let the doctors just make this assumption, get more tests. PBC is a very serious disease leading to an eventual liver transplant but the early they catch it the sooner they can begin treatment to slow down the progression.

Thank you so much Paula I'm a little worried my mother had cirrhosis and died from it. I've had pain on my right side for years and the doctor said he had no idia what it could have been. I'll fined out soon what is going on. But again I don't feel so alone in this.
