The truth about Mild Fatty infiltration of the Liver

I see a lot of places recently talking about Mild Fatty Infiltration of the Liver, and it troubles me to find that many people think that is not really a condition that should be taken seriously.

The meaning of mild fatty infiltration of the liver is the fact that fatty liver isn’t yet developed at its full scale. Blood results would show some levels of elevated liver enzymes, but not as much.

Liver ultrasound would show some levels of enlarged liver and fat around the liver, but again, not as much as a non-mild fatty infiltration of the liver.

The truth about Mild Fatty Infiltration of the Liver

The problem is, there is actually no such thing. To avoid fatty liver complications, the disease needs an attention as soon as you are diagnosed, no matter if it’s mild or at any other stage.

If you are being told you “only” have a mild fatty liver infiltration and it’s nothing to worry about – don’t take it for granted. Your aim should be to stop the disease as soon as possible by treating fatty liver. Don’t wait for the advancement of the disease.

If you have been told you have a Mild Fatty Infiltration of the Liver, comment below and tell your story.

    I am too being told I have a fatty liver — it’s 21 cm. I also have an ALK of 259, a GGT of 764, a CRP of 16.2 and a Sed Rate of 59. I have been in limbo for the past year and have had my gallbladder removed, an ERCP which showed mild dilation of a duct and this was opened up, an MRI of my liver that showed no dilation of bile ducts, but did show lesions on my kidneys, and a cyst in my liver. I’m now re-routed from my liver to my kidneys, as my father died of renal cancer. I’ve had another MRI w/ contrast and a CT w/ contrast and both are inconclusive either way for lesions being benign or malignant. No body can figure out what is wrong with me. I am very very fatigued, have night sweats and overall feel crappy.
