Diagnosed last Fall with Nash after too long of a period of time of caregivers monitoring blood tests, but didn't mention anything about consequences of bad test levels, just said they were monitoring me. I assume then, that I was in NAFLD state prior to NASH, but nothing mentioned until NASH was diagnosed….that's how it works right, first comes Fatty Liver Disease, and if not corrected, turns into NASH? …..not too happy about it all, especially if that's the case. Seems some things online about diet are contradicting. Is there a place I can find correct information of things I can no longer eat? ….can't seem to find a definitive answer about meat…is pork allowed…. chicken, but only white…. I know there are a lot of reputable sites, but looking for ones that might be more helpful overall. …..and yes, I have looked at the Mayo Clinic site info….any other places?

@lrr, Welcome to Mayo Connect.
I was not diagnosed with NASH, but I also went thru a long period of tests, monitoring, and observation until my liver disease was diagnosed.
Here is some information that I have located.

From the NIH National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney –Diseases: Definition & Facts:
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a condition in which fat builds up in your liver. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a type of NAFLD. If you have NASH, you have inflammation and liver cell damage, along with fat in your liver.

Here are a couple of discussions that I recommend. As Mayo Connect Member, you can post a question and participate with a question or comment anywhere, anytime.

I'd like to direct you to this discussion with other members talking specifically about cirrhosis of the liver:

@irr – Have you been making any dietary changes that seem to work for you? What is your doctor telling you about when/if you will see positive results?
