hello all, I have posted a couple of times, but have been a little confused about whats going on with me. I have determined that  I do in fact have NASH not NAFLD.  liver biopsy showed NASH. It seems to me that drs use these two abbreviations interchanable sometimes. but anyway, just wondering if anyone has low platelet count due to enlarged spleen, caused by portal hypertension,which is due to liver fibrosis?? if so how much worrying should I do about bleeding? a guess my ct is considered stable but low. any info out there?

Hi Kathy,   We do have others that have been diagnosed with NASH.  Hopefully they will see your post. 

As far as the bleeding thing..........have you had any nosebleeds for no apparent reason that were hard to stop.  Do you bleed and bleed from little cuts or scrapes?  Or blood in your urine or stool?  If so call your doc and let he/she know what's going on.  There's treatment for thin blood.

Most liver patients experience low platelet count, or enlarged spleen and portal  hypertension at some point in their journey with their disease....

Thoughts and prayers..........

Welcome to the forum Kathy. Have you had an endoscopy to determine if you have varices caused from the portal hypertension? With portal hypertension and varices a person is at an increased risk for bleeds from the esphougas and the stomach. Are you on medication for the portal hypertension?
