    • Anne, I have this problem on and off due to environmental toxins. I had to change my diet and my (naturopathic) doc has me taking a natural detox formula. It can also cause a pre-ciabetic state, and I have to watch my sugar intake, which is hard because I Love dark chocolate.

    • I’ve never heard of it. Is this curable, treatable...or something you just have to manage for life?

    • Ruby, it depends, I guess on what the cause is? For me it’s something I have to manage for life, but for most it’s treatable, curable and over with if they change their diet, if that’s the cause of it. It’s common with obesity (which I’m not) and with diabetes.

    • Anne, this is an excellent article on the subject by the Mayo Clinic

      I read through the whole thing, very interesting. One question, did they rule out gallbladder trouble? The liver and the gallbladder work together to breakdown and digest fats that we eat. Is your cholesterol high? Do you need to lose weight?

      Also, I caught something that was said in the article about inflamation. If you take fish oil capsules daily you’ll reduce inflamatory conditions in your body overall, including the liver. When I started taking fish oil on a regular basis about a month or so ago, my asthma, which is an inflamatory condition, decreased significantly.

      Looks like there are no drugs available for the condition. Actually a good thing - you’ll be able to heal your liver through diet and lifestyle changes possibly.

    • Sorry to hear it Catfan. A very good friend of mine had it for years. Cathie is correct. You’d be amazed at what happens when you cleanse your body. My friend was able to get off her dr written suggestion for it.

    • Cynthia, good point about the inflammation!  

      The environmental toxins causes severe inflammation and one relief I use is a herbal anti-inflammatory tincture and a herbal antihistimine. Some drugs can cause inflammation.
