I just got diagnosed with NASH (Non-Alcoholic SteatoHepatitis) the other day, since my liver bloodwork recently came back kinda FUBARíd. So the Dr. ordered an ultrasound that showed abnormal liver density (inflamed/denser than normal), but at least no masses, gallstones, or lesions (ďItís naaaht a tuuumuh!Ē to quote Ahhhnold). I guess with NASH, from what Iíve read, thereís no ďcureĒ, and they really donít even know what causes it. Some things are thought to help (coffee, oddly enough, and naturally-occurring vitamin E), but nothing is conclusive yet. As yet there are no meds, but a few show promise down the road. I donít have any of the risk factors like obesity, diabetes, alcoholism, heavy ibuprofen or acetaminophen use, or Hep B or C (those are negative thankfully!), so, getting this fixed is going to be more difficult for me. Itís not like I can just take insulin or lose 40lbs. I think the only things I can reasonably do are having a better diet after work (I eat pretty healthy for breakfast and lunch), but even for dinner I donít eat badly. Iím just hoping that eating a lot more fish will help, and I love salmon, soÖ Man, I hardly even drink anymore, so what in the h3ll is causing this? Ah well. Hopefully it will get at least a little better, or get no worse, and it wonít go into fibrosis or cirrhosis, both of which have a high morbidity rate after years of the condition (pretty much going vertical after about 15-20 years). Thankfully if it doesnít go into either condition the morbidity rate isnít significantly higher than ďnormalĒ. Getting Olde is the suck! Kinda feel like my body is betraying me, especially since I really didn't do anything to have this issue. I hardly ever even drink a single drink anymore, and was never a heavy drinker. Yeah, I partied on the weekend when I was younger, but it was not like every day, and with very few exceptions over the years never blackout drunk or anything. Weird.
Anyone else get hit with this [email protected]
? Should I START drinking heavily and kill it off quick so I can get a new upgrade? LOL
