I am new and I am very confused. Can somebody please talk to me and guide me?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am 40, and for a long time I've been told I have a non-alcoholic fatty liver.  

I sometimes have light color stools and sort of yellowish eyes but doctors don't seem to really care about it.

I do not drink (maybe a wine here and there only on social occasions)

I am overweight 20 kilos perhaps

I am a love eating, however I am not a junk food type of eater, I like to eat home cooked meals with plenty of stews, veggies, fruits.

I am sedentary 

A month ago I had a blood exam and these were my results:

BILIRUBIN: 11 (Normal)

GOT: 39 (Normal)

GPT: 67 (HIGH), the range is apparently between 3 and 50.

Gamma GT 61 (HIGH), the range is apparently between 8 and 55.

Doctor told me it's most likely genetic in my case and that I should lose weight.  

Would you say my liver count is serious or worrisome?  I have started TODAY with exercise, I am determined to get better, but I am nervous!

Are those liver counts serious?

    I also have fatty liver, I don't drink, don't eat meat and im size 10, I eat lots of veg and fruit, I also exercise regularly so in my case it can only be genetic. If there was anything I could do to help reduce this problem I would definitely do it. Good on you for starting your exercising as in your case this may help reduce the fat on your liver we can only heed what the specialists tell us, keep up the good work.

      It seems like it's quite the epidemic christine....  we're definitely not alone!

      I also seem to have slightly high bad cholesterol, and slight low good cholesterol.  And this has been for years!  (Even back when I used to exercise daily)

      I am puzzled as what to do!

      Do you now how to read liver counts?  What do you think of mine?

    So I had my blood redrawn and my ALT was back to normal. But now my glucose is 116 and my AGAP is 12.5. I stopped taking Excedrin Tablets I honestly think that was why my ALT was elevated. Now I am scared because of these results.
