Hi, I'm a 32 year old caucasion male, 5'11". 2 years ago I went to the doctor complaining of fatigue etc and he did some blood tests, which showed low vitamin D and some abnormal LFT's. I was sent for a liver ultrasound which confirmed fatty liver.
2 years later, I'm trying to lose weight. At the start of November I was 17st5lb, now I'm 16st3lb so weight loss is going well. I've switched from eating lots of processed food to eating more wholegrains, nuts (walnuts and almonds), lean chicken and have switched from dairy milk to Soya. My calorie intake is usually around 1400/day.
However, over the last 2 weeks I've developed generalised itching. I've ignored it for a while, but over the last week I've been very worried about it. There is no rash and it's not concentrated on any particular body part. I've tried antihistamines and moisturising to no avail.
I have a doctor's appointment tonight as I'm extremely worried about it being my liver again, particularly Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (which seems to have an itch as the first symptom).
Does it sound like PBC? Or could it be an allergy to Soy or something? (From today I've switched to Almond milk).
Any advice greatly appreciated!
