    Is it ok if I'm not hungry & have a super huge liver & spleen to the point that my diaphragm are super swollen. I look heavy but my drs are atamous that we need to take care of those issues. I'm ALWAYS tired. Not very hungry but gaining weight & ALWAYS in pain. I can barely bend over & feel so sick after eating. I never have been 1 to consume alcohol, infact I was always the double D ( designed driver). Lately I've had urges to drink to kill the pain. Is that normal? I'm under lots of different kinds of vitamins & other medications for my mental health & general health. A year ago I had a major hysterectomy while hemorrhaging & I only had 17% blood in my entire body. I didn't want blood so I went bloodless during the surgery & left the hospital with only 14% blood in my entire body. I was told that I'm the only one who has survived something like that. I believe that it was my Lord who pulled me through & my total trust in him that got me through. He's so amazing that he's ALL we need. Yet, I feel much pain. I have a liver that can sustain myself & 2 others. That's that I NEVER have been a drinker nor ate unhealthy. I'd love to know why. They've done so many blood testing, took out my gallbladder, uterus, hysterectomy & now this, all within a short time. Maybe, Father is almost ready for my departure, I don't know. I know several of my biological parents & brothers & sisters have died within a short time of each other. It's just mind boggling. I feel for all of us. Love our Lord & God. Don't think everything will not be ok, because I know that it will be as long as you try because our Father & Lord want us & love us. I love you guys. We're the little engine that could.

    A good or bad liver, is what decide whether we are well or being sick in general. Bad liver is the underlying cause. But doctors never tell that to the pasients, and regular blood test don't show it either. Thank you for teaching us, Dr. Berg, and tells us what we need to know.

    Been intermittent fasting for 10 months and lost 70 lbs. Everything for blood work was showing great numbers until now. At my job they did a yearly physical and blood work, they told me my ALT is at 134 & GGT is at 171. I fasted 36 hours before blood was drawn and hadn't drank alcohol for 9 days. Before that I would consume 1 alcoholic beverage every other week. I completely changed what I eat, switching to grass-fed meats, more vegetables, and supplements. I've been going to the gym 2-3 times a week. Not sure what happened and how serious it is other than the lab wanted me to call them right away. Ahhh, almost makes me want to give up

    Hey Dr. Berg, I don't know if you will ever see this. But, I have been diagnosed with Fatty Liver. My doctor told me to avoid carbs, alcohols and sugars. She also told me to exercise and to lose weight. So, I started the Keto diet. And, I started going to the gym and getting on the treadmill for exercise. However, to avoid using sugar, to sweeten my coffee in the morning, I use erythritol (sugar alcohol) to sweeten it. My question is, is this considered an alcohol to avoid? Is it really considered a sugar since it isn;t supposed to raise glucose levels? And, if so, are Stevia or Monk Fruit better options?

    I really hope people take this advise into account, but do their own research. While most things here are true they also can be dangerous for making other conditions worse. Sipping apple cider vingar all throughout the day is going to trash your teeth so now you you have a healthy liver bad bad teeth and eventually probably bad heart. Certain foods are also bad for cancer patients or could attribut to giving you cancer like asparagus, certain vitamins and carrots etc etc.Esophageal ph and alchohol exposure can lead to esophageal cancer and kombucha has the effects of alcohol BECAUASE KOMBUCHA CONTAINS ALCHOHOL so some real misinfo here from 2015 as well. You really have to watch your own behind on most of this information, its a money driven industry.

    Kudos to every one of you who quit drinking alcohol! the other things that will give you a fatty liver are bad eating -sugars of any kind including fructose, glucose, dextrose, etc, simple carbs like crackers, chips, etc. These turn to sugar in your body and the fat collects around the liver. I stopped drinking decades ago but my diet was really bad. Working on it now. Give up these things and you will also lower your cholesterol and greatly lower your triglycerides! Stay sober; life really improves without the alcohol if you are prone to alcohol addiction!
