Hello good people:) Sorry if posting here where wrong. But cant find another place to post a liver topic.
I know this is not a well studied matter, or that there is little knowledge about
it. But anyways, i know many folks has a lot of experience etc.
Im 31 years old. Have not been a heavy drinker or any thing. Partied some in the 20s though.
I have a large number of spider naevi on chest, shoulders and face. Cant remember when i started getting them. But had many of them atleast 8 years ago also. But only on the chest then.
Since they have grown in numbers. Latest two years, i think they have been growing more rapidly. More on the face and shoulders. They are all very small.
Didnt think to much about
it. Till i went to a derm for another issue in january. He told me to go check it out, since it was a sign of liver disease.
Went to the doctor. He took liver samples and ordered a ultrasound check. The ultrasound where good. They said the blood flow, was a little different than normal, but it was something i was born with. The samples where all good. Havent seen them yet, but nurse said so on the phone.
Took some test about
another issue last summer. Alt, ast, bilirubin etc, all where normal than also. Exept ldl cholesterol where a little low.
Going to the doctor soon, to hear what he says. But im pretty sure he will say its all good.
So my question is. Can there be a cluster of spider naevi without liver disease?? I have so many, i cant count them. I wonder if anyone knows anything about
I dont believe i have any other symptoms. And i dont do drugs, i eat healthy mostly. Though i have been drinking way to much orange juice during the years.
