Got the results of the liver biopsy. They ruled out AIH, Hep A,B,C and D. No HCC. No autoimmune diease
Fatty Metamorphosis predominately macrovesicular. Chronic lymphocytic Inflammation/Chronic Hepatitis of Portal Tracts Grade 2.
Diffuse Portal and Periportal fibrosis with bridging fibrosis and nodular cirrhosis (non-alcoholic) early stage. Liver is fully compensated.
Minimal stainable iron present due to ferrous sulfate to treat anemia.
Hep Doc added vitamin e twice a day 400 IU to reduce inflammation and continue weight loss program. Noted additional 10 pounds down from previous visit 4 weeks ago. He said weight loss would slow or stop additional damage to the liver and reduce or eliminate fatty liver. Reducing inflammation will help liver cells to regenerate.
Cleared to take all meds including Acetaminophen, maximum strength Tylenol and Advil up to 4-6 tablets a day but not daily. May take lower dose daily.
Findings were shared with a secondary hep doc who agreed.
Incidentally I noticed the Fatty Liver percentage of infiltration is down from 90 to 60. Following low sodium, low fat diet.
