Hi again, I was told I had "a fatty liver" by a hepatologist and later was told it is PBC. Is that the same thing? I was monitored closely for about 3 years but I tired of driving 2 hours to the specialist so then I was referred to a specialist closer to home. He told me yes there may be something going on witht he liver but for now I was fine, and could do with a yearly check by my gp. I had a liver test done a few weeks ago so I guess everything is ok. Do you know if it is possible for PBC or fatty liver patients to lose weight? I went through a bad flare last year and my prednisone was doubled for 2 weeks, I gained about 12 lbs through it all and am having a terrible time getting it off. i saw a liver specialist on tv and he said fatty liver patients almost always are unable to lose weight. What's that about? Thanks
