Jane,

I know that when I had several different scans done a few years ago that I was told that I have a slightly fatty liver. My GI doctor and my Rheumatologist were not concerned about it, so I didn't persue it any further.

Which test is coming back higher and lower? I wasn't quite sure which test you are referring to.

Hey! I would not get yourself worked up about it. My liver showed up the same way a couple of times and the inflammation most of the time goes away on its own. It may not be anything but I noticed when I received those test results I was actually taking a lot of Motrin and anti-inflammatorys.I don't know if that had anything to do with the results but eventually my liver went back to normal don't ask how but it did. I would not get excited about it tho we have enough problems without adding extra worries to them. Good Luck and take care. Laurie

I've had problems with a fatty liver since early in my dx, it goes up & down like a yoyo :lol:
One of the first things they asked me was do I drink. chance would be a fine thing, I can't stand the effects of alcohol so I never touch it :rotfl:
They keep an eye on mine with blood tests & ultra sound scans.
