Insulin Resistance and Fatty Liver
I am at the age of 56. For years I had fatty liver. I tried to improve the situation by physical exercise. Since July last year, every day I ran 3.5 mile on a running machine. Sadly, weight was not reduced and a recent ultrasound exam showed fatty liver worsened.
Further IGT test showed both glucose level and insulin level are moderately higher than normal. Doctor told me it is the case of insulin resistance associated with fatty liver.
I feel quite discouraged that I really tried my best but could not see any improvement.
Can anyone share the experience with me how to make things better with diet plus physical exercise?
Is my case serious enough to justify a medicine? Two widely used medicines in China are Metformin and TZDs. But, both have serious side effects, esp. Metformin hurts stomach and I already have serious stomach problems. Any other recommendations?
Or can anyone introduce me some medicine from natural materials, instead of from chemicals?
Thank you very much.
