Fatty Liver Disease Support Group

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is fatty inflammation of the liver not due to excessive alcohol use. Most with NAFLD have no or few symptoms. Infrequently patients may complain of fatigue, malaise and dull right upper abdominal discomfort. Mild jaundice can rarely be noticed. More commonly it is diagnosed as a result of abnormal liver function tests during routine blood tests.

The test results came back as elevated liver enzymes and low good...

    Qusetions about Food

    7
    I just received my blood work results and my liver enzymes are high. My doctor wants me to quit drinking (I don't drink) and go on a low carb low sugar diet (lifestyle change) I was wondering what the best foods are for this type of diet. I would prefer that my husband share this lifestyle change with me as well so I need options that he will eat too.Thank you for your help.
