Haven’t actually been diagnosed with fatty liver disease yet but just curious if anyone had high ferritin levels when they were diagnosed? I have autoimmune diseases so I’m trying not to panic but I’m feeling overwhelmed.

      I recently had gastric bypass surgery and they found a softball sized tumor on my liver and non alcohol cirrhosis damage. Had ultrasound and waiting on liver specialist appt any advice or questions to ask him?

      Hi! The way FLD was described to me by my doctor (and by a GI specialist because I was also very fearful, so I doubled checked) is that it is benign. If you carry extra weight on your body you will also carry some in your liver. I was told that in order to reduce the amount of fat in my liver would be to lose 10% of my body weight. I was told that it’s not something to worry about! I know this doesn’t answer your main question, but as someone with health anxiety I know how scary these things can be. I hope this reduced your anxiety a tad!

        @wildflower440 thanks so much! I’m hoping that it is this and not something else. My doctor is running a bunch of blood work to rule other autoimmune diseases out
