As mentioned, fatty liver may or may not present any symptoms so care and attention should always be paid to your health and if you have any concerns or do not feel well then a visit to your GP is always recommended.
Taking a proactive stance with your health is always a good thing and the gold standard non-invasive method of detecting a fatty liver is by having an ultrasound scan. At the scan clinic we can do this by itself as part of the Upper abdomen scan or as part of our proactive health checks - the Wellman health check for men and the Wellwoman health check for women.
If you have had a scan and blood test and this has showed fatty liver then there is no specific treatment, medication or therapy for NAFLD, however do not despair there are steps you can take to help manage the situation before it worsens.
The biggest step you can take to help the situation is make changes to your lifestyle. Identify the points of your diet that have high fat content and make changes to limit or cut these out. If you drink alcohol, then limit your intake to the national recommend limits and seek professional help if you are finding it difficult to cut down your alcohol intake.
Exercise is the next big step you can take; studies have shown exercise reduces liver fat content. If you have not had done much exercise in the past then make sure you do this safely and take on a personal trainer even if this is to help you get started so that you know how to perform exercises properly without the risk of injuring yourself.
The advice above is important to take on board as ignoring the results and continuing an unhealthy lifestyle can lead to more serious liver problems and to a potential situation whereby the liver is unable to heal.
In all circumstances it's important to get medical advice from your GP/ Health care professional on what actions/steps to take.
