    Hi Joan....I just found you on this site and thanks for being there. I also have a fatty liver and the liver roll as you said the doc's call it. It is extremely uncomfortable, especially sitting for awhile. In your post you keep referring to NASH....what is that? I've lost 26 lbs. and intend to keep going on my quest to get rid of this fat junk in the mid section. icon_smile.gif Thanks, Doni

    Hi all, sorry for the delay in answer.

    It'd be best to talk with your doctor, since each patient has unique medical needs. I was never diagnosed as anemic, but my mother was. She was on increased iron, but her levels were monitored closely.

    Studies are coming out now with even more detailed information on what the liver can and can not tolerate and what actually is beneficial which once was thought not to be. If you have NASH or any disease it is always best to consult with your doctor and be under a physician's care.

    In response to the post above referring us to Alcoholic Treatment, I just want to add this:

    NASH is not from alcoholism. I have only had 2 alcoholic drinks my entire life.

    I just ran across this thread - this is something that I have no knowledge of, but it sounds very distressing. What I wanted to comment is that, if you can, get a referral to a hepatologist (liver disease specialist) or a gastroenterologist with an interest in liver diseases. More GE guys around, generally. Your primary care physician may be a fine doctor, but you often will really benefit from having a specialist involved. I was lucky that my internist referred me to a podiatrist for something that both she and I thought was minor but annoying, and the podiatrist identified something more serious that lead to my having surgery on both feet.

    The specialist is far more likely to ensure that you get the proper nutrional advice, etc., as well as the most appropriate treatment for yourself.

    I wish all of you the very best in dealing with this disease.

    Sorry to hear you have been through so much! I agree, it is only with the Lord that we can journey through this. icon_smile.gif

    When I went through the program with the nutritionist she said it isn't about what I eat, but about how much. Since the goal is to get rid of the fatty liver (or in my case NASH) the only thing known to help do that is exercise and weight loss. So, I was put on a reduced calorie program, which means I had to make every calorie count. Whole milk has 150 calories in a serving, which doesn't seem like a lot but it does take a chunk out of a reduced calorie program. My suggestion would be to only use 1/2 a serving at a time, if possible. If not, then maybe do 1/2 whole and 1/2 low fat? Eventually working your way to all low fat and then do the same thing with low fat and fat free. I have recently gone back to 2% milk due to lactose intolerance, after reading that fat free milk actually has more lactose than low fat.

    It comes down to your weight loss plan and what you are willing to sacrifice. My limit was 1300 per day with exercise daily for at least 30 minutes and 3 times a week I had to do an aerobic activity for at least 30 minutes. So - plan out your meals, figure out your course of action and if whole milk is able to be incorporated, then you have a winner. icon_smile.gif

    Have fun with it -- keep variety in your diet and exercise routine. Remember portion control and protein is better than carbs, as protein makes you feel full longer and carbs make you hungry faster.

    Hugs!

    I would definitely talk with your doctor about what exercises would be best, before starting anything strenuous. I think a water aerobics program would be excellent, is there a Y or a community pool that has that program? If they don't, then make up your own routine at the pool -- use a kickboard to help you swim and use a noodle to help you float if you need it while doing some of the other exercises.

    Strengthening training may be something to check into as well. See what your doctor has to say - maybe they'll even refer you to a physical therapist that can show you some things you can do.

    Also -- an accountability partner is great during this change of eating habits and exercise routine part of your life. Remember -- this isn't a diet -- it is a change in the way you live, for the rest of your life. icon_smile.gif A change for the better -- because we definitely feel better when we eat healthy.
