Interesting, Blue Ruby,

So it seems a lot of what I am doing, except the heavy drinking of course! good to fight fatty liver.

I've had fatty liver since I was a teenager, long before I became an alcoholic, so when I'm told I have it now, I barely concern myself with it.

I've been taking milk thistle for some years now after seeing a doctor on TV news talk about how he saw remarkable results in liver repair with patients, including sclerotic alcoholics.

Since making some of Buttoni's recipes that require whey protein, I have since also been making protein shakes with it, I should maybe consume a little more. Also, I keep forgetting to drink my green tea every day. I remember, do it for a while, then drop off again.

With the Atkins approach, fiber is a big component and many of the products, especially for baking, use the super high fiber flours and meals, so, good news that's part of my diet as well...and makes for a well functioning "constitution"!

Several standards of these low carb diets eliminates the most likely cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver, like weight loss and elimination of refined carbs and sugars.

So, other than my drinking too much, I'm doing the right thing!

Please don't take this the wrong way but I cracked up when I read this. Not sure if your serious or not about the statement but I was reminded of another funny quip that is similar in it's tenor..

"...other that that Mrs. Lincoln, How was the play?"

I wish you well. I understand that you enjoy drinking and want to continue. I did too and was able to continue for a long, long, long time. You are doing the right thing by minimizing the things you can that cause harm, there by saving more liver to deal with alcohol.

This coming from one who gets to read this every 6 months or so from looking at an ultrasound or MRI. Not meant to scare, just for your illumination and my "coming out" so to speak...



Comparison study: Abdominal MRI 6/2/2017

Liver: Cirrhotic configuration to the liver and particularly selective
T2 hyperintensity throughout the parenchyma consistent with cirrhosis.
No hepatic steatosis.

Lesion 1: There is a 9 mm subcapsular lesion in hepatic segment 7
which is isointense on arterial phase and portal venous phase images
and hypoenhancing relative to background parenchyma on 3 minute phase
images (series 13 image 24). The lesion is T1 and T2 isointense,
demonstrates no restricted diffusion signal, and is not associated
with a pseudocapsule. There is apparent intralesional iron which
favors benignity. Previously the mass measured 9 mm on 6/2/2017, and 7
mm on 2/21/2017. No evidence of venous invasion. OPTN/LIRADS class 3.

No new liver lesions. No suspicious arterial enhancement.
