Point taken lerie and thanks all for kind replies! I'm glad to hear people talk about NASH and NAFLD (non alcoholic fatty liver disease) since I had to endure comments about my grandmother's secret alcoholism upon her death, because she died from advanced liver disease in her early sixties.
My grandmother had and my father and I have NAFLD.
My grandmother had type II diabetes, was about 40-60 lbs overweight, and died at home of ruptured esophageal varices due to advanced liver disease she didn't know she had.
My father has type II diabetes, steatosis and mild cirrhosis doctors attribute to his diabetes.
I have hyperinsulinemia(hypoglycemia) with severe steatosis w/o signs of cirrhosis they tell me. They don't always tell me everything...
I have hx of HCV, my father and grandmother do not. My father was tested and a test was not available at the time of my grandmothers death. We do not have autoimmune hepatitis.
So far, tx seems to be working for me, even with my added liver problem NAFLD, so I just want to be encouraging. HCV, not tx, was responsible for my body being out of whack afterwards. I double checked and the Merck Manual confirmed for me what my doctor told me, "Extensive liver disease--for example from viral hepatitis, cirrhosis, or cancer--may also produce hypoglycemia (796)."
Which reminds me, I learned that I blamed a lot of post-tx health issues on tx when they were really caused from HCV. I just couldn't believe that this virus I didn't even know I had had done and was doing so much covert damage, and I am so glad I got treatment.
I gained 110 pounds in the 13 years after tx (a slow steady gain) and some was definitely the result of simply aging. I had struggled in vain for years to lose weight after tx, and it seemed impossible. Though the HCV was under control, my obesity was killing me. It certainly assisted, if not solely caused my NASH, for once I lost 60 pounds, my enzymes became normal. I blamed tx for my weight gain, but it was actually a totally separate issue, triggered perhaps by HCV or some other yet undiscovered problem. But definitely not tx.
I just wanted you all to know that there is someone out there who had tx and its still working after so many years, despite bumps in the road. I wish everyone the best and will pray for all of us that peace, comfort, healing, and joy is showered upon us all.
