I am 41 overweight ..eat healthy diet and regular excercise. Moderate drinker ..maybe 5 pints a week but never a big drinker.
Had two blood tests over two months. Ast 55 alt 133 ggt 77 then a second test alt 108 ast 50. Doc told me I would have fatty liver disease but sent for ultrasound and told I have a healthy liver which is a healthy size by technition.
Felt relieved until I saw liver specilaist who then said he also wants a fibroscan done but did not explain why. (Have now researched and it's to see scarring).
Aside from above LFTs bloods all okay except cholesterol 7.7 and triglycerides 5. I was surprised by this as although I am overweight I eat very healthy low cholesterol diet for last few years.
My question is how accurate is ultrasound for liver health and is cholesterol and triglycerides linked to liver health?
Have a 4 week wait for fibroscan and very worried.
