Fatty liver not showing in tests? Is it possible?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I wonder because I don't want to bark up the wrong tree.

I have these symptoms.

* Neuropathy in lower legs

* Extreme abdominal bloating

* Up all night peeing

* fatigue and muscle weakness

* Confusion

* Abdominal pains, cramps, achey back

* Impossible to gain weight and digest fat

All I remember is bilrubin being slightly high but within 'normal': to the NHS.

    Fatty liver does not cause these symptoms. What leads you to believe you have fatty liver, bad eating lifestyle, alcohol consumption or something else?

      I'm perplexed. It is related to plenty of these including abdominal swelling.

      I'm sure I have one, or all of the following:

      1. Prediabetes (I get hyper and hypoglycemix depending on if I've over eaten or haven't eaten for 4-5 + hours

      2. Bile reflux / blocked bile duct

      3. Fatty Liver

      4. Nervous system damage as a result of all of this, plus the stress.

      Yes I've had a history of binge eating. Once, for months, I ate a diet of pizzas and cookies because I was so depressed. That's not an excuse, but this was prior to being aware how much damage I could do.

      I'm thirty years old.
