Feb 22, 2019 · Liver biopsy in Digestive Health

I am having an MRE today due to fatty infiltrates of liver , at this point I am following Mediterranean diet no alcohol and exercise – 30 min at least five days a week. Exercise this winter is the hardest . Once I receive the results of the liver elasticity from the MRE imaging the treatment plan will hopefully be more specific . I researched that1/4 have fatty liver . There are clinical trials looking at how to delay progression of fibrosis
I will keep sharing what I learn because it is more common than I thought and it helps to have discussions

I am having a fibroscan this Friday and also have a fatty liver that may indicate need for biopsy .I too have been given the same advice ; I am just curious if your current lifestyle does include healthy foods and exercise , I have been health conscious most of my life but for the past few years had gained 15 pounds and less exercise so I believe those factors do make a difference. My sister is a dietician and I do know that liverfoundation.org has excellent outcome based recommendations .

Our dermatologist has not been helpful with more aggressive treatments
Please help
