Sorry to hear you have this. I was diagnosed at 28 and have been living with it for 15 years now and every cell of my liver is completely full of fat. I had fibrosis previously but it healed supposedly and then the fat took over all through my liver. I have some other autoimmune problems and diabetes and everyone on my dad's side of the family has this or had it while alive and I'm the first to be effected so young. I hate being yelled at to lose weight because a fatty liver makes it awful to try to lose any weight. I lost 60 lbs. which took me off the really bad cycle I was on, I was heading toward dying from my wieght, but I was 103 lbs when I got it, so it caused my obesity, not the other way around. My dad has it and is 70 and is still doing fine, men seem to have it easier. He watches his diet due to diabetes and was on metformin for like ten years, and that helped a lot, it hasn't reversed but it hasn't progressed. My levels are no longer high, but I'm on a ton of medicine, including immunosuppressants and metformin. I'm glad they are taking this seriously finally. My family could have told them thirty years ago that this disease is a big deal, weve been coping for three generations. I hope you can get your diet down and lose some weight and regress it and be well again. And I'm sorry you have this.
