Jul 15, 2018 · Insulin Resistance and Fatty Liver in Diabetes/Endocrine System

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.

Nov 10, 2016 · Degree of severity of intestinal metaplasia in Digestive Health

I am from China and now work in the United States. In China, I was diagnosed of intestinal metaplasia (++). Here, (++) means medium severity. Two weeks ago, I had a endoscopy in California, the resulting biopsy report only showed the existence of intestinal metaplasia in Antrum and Angularis, but not mention its severity. I have no way to find whether this desease is improving or deteriorating. I am quite nervous about its malignant development and want to monitor it closely. Can MAYO issue a biopsy report showing the degree of severity of intestinal metaplasia at Antrum and Angularis?
Thang you.
