After abnormal LFTs I had an ultrsound last year in June and told had perfectly healthy normal looking liver then fibroscan scored 6.98k in september ..apparently below 7 is okay but mindful the average is around 5ish and this is borderline. Had elevated cholesterol triglycerides alt ast ggt and once alp in about 4 blood tests since may last year.
I have dropped from over 18 stone to just under 15 stone. Given up booze, exercise daily and on a slow steady diet aiming for 13st. Taking omega 3, milk thistle, vitamin c, vitamin e and probiotics. At my last blood test in November my cholesterol had dropped from mid 6s and 7s to normal range in the 4s and triglycerides back from 3 to4 time normal into normal. All liver function tests normal except alt which is between 100 and 150.
My question is that over the last couple of months I have been getting pain in my upper right front ribs radiating to mid back and occasional mildly itchy arms (took up daily swimming and suspect a link to this and chlorine so stopped for a while). I have had pain in my mid and upper back for years following car crash but the radiating to front upper right tummy lower ribs area seems new and been ongoing for few months. Worried this is my liver and wondering what experience people have of this. Based on ultrasound and fibroscan my condition is not that advanced and keep reading such pain is only apparent with more advanced liver issues. Can't see what else I can do for my liver..on a liver friendly slow steady healthy diet free of alcohol.
