I had a CT scan and I have this Fatty liver situation. I think it is causing me to be hypoglycemic, or the reverse.-- Anyone dealing with this???  I am not aver weitght.

Bupleurum, Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root, Oregon Grape Root, etc. are great for this situation. I've been dealing with fatty liver from IV nutrition (IV dextrose, amino acids, fats) since July 2008, but now finally with the recent addition of herbs such as the above, my liver enzyme levels have returned to normal (they were over 1000).

Wow, Razzle!! That's really great! My soon-to-be son-in-law has recently been dxed with fatty liver (although he doesn't fit the profile) and it's been more than a little overwhelming for him - all of the docs & no answers. I have suggested he at least go over the sx lists for TBI's, as he spent over a year in Afganistan (sp?).
Thank you for posting that!

And Stutterbug - thank you for posting your question!!!
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

Stutterbug,

I haven't done a CT scan yet but my doctor suspects that I have fatty liver too. I was told to lose weight which is kind of hard in my current situation. I do know that the liver bounces back, most of the time, from things like this.

Are your liver enzymes elevated?

coffee enemas.. green juice, if you can handle it wheat grass drinking and implant in enema. glutathione. if you can get a glutathione IV that would be great. I just did sylamarin IV and went through big detox.

fatty liver is very common as you get older but also medications and alchohol and DIET.

the herbs Razzle talking about is important. bulpurim ...there is a great herb combo for hep c.

i think it spelled shi to ko .. pretty close if you goolge that for hep c it will come up.

also tumeric.
hep c , lyme
Dad has lyme

Stutterbug,

Yes, the liver has the ability to recover from fatty liver if whatever was causing problems for the liver is resolved and/or the herbs (and/or glutathione) are used - the liver is an amazingly resiliant organ. Some people who have to take anti-transplant rejection medications (known to cause liver problems) use Milk Thistle to protect the liver from damage from the medication. I think some cancer patients also use Milk Thistle for protecting their liver from chemotherapy drugs...

Take care,

Hi stutterbug,

A friend's teenage son was diagnosed with fatty liver due to his diet. The docs thought it was due to overconsumption of corn syrup in food products. He quit eating anything with corn syrup and slowly his liver improved. I don't know if this relates to your diet but thought it might possibly help.

Best wishes, bablymers mom

The directions on the bottle should be sufficient. Might want to start with a lower dose, though, to see if you do ok with it...

OMG I can't believe you posted this!
 
I was a regular (and co-moderator)here a few years ago battling lyme and coinfections.  Been feeling fantastic but in June of last year, started having abdominal spasms of some sort with a feeling of distended abdomen, bloating and something constantly stuck under my lower right rib cage.  My LLMD immediately ran a CT and the only thing it showed was a fatty liver.  She told me to lose weight to correct it and that was it.  I have, since then, been having bloating, indigestion, and discomfort but not really pain in the same area.  I cannot lose weight and have gained and excessive amount of fat around my middle which I never had.
 
Had been thinking (and treating) Mycoplasma, H Pylori, IBS, ulcer, GERD, etc. until last night when I started researching this feeling and came back to the fatty liver. 
 
Now, I think after all this time, this is what it is!!
 
I'm kinda excited as its been way too long (and scary) not knowing but refuse to go to another dr. and have them mistreat and insult me when I mention lyme. 
 
So I am going to start a liver cleanse, clean eating (yikes) and pick up my exercise once the nice weather starts.  I'm also hopeful that perhaps it will help with my weight loss and peripheral neuropathy.
 
Good luck to you and lets keep each other posted with any luck we have. 
 
 
 
 
Lyme, HME, HGE, bartonella. 4+ years undiag. despite 10 drs.
Current meds: folbic, neurontin, cymbalta, Prior meds: bactrim, doryx, amantadine, amox, minocycline, tetracy, roxithyromycin. IV refused by ins. Supplements: boluoke, alpha lipoic acid, AG immune, magnesium, milk thistle, resistant microbes, cats claw
FEELING GREAT THESE DAYS! Hang in there - it does get better.
