Dr said I have a little bit of fat in liver and that my thyroid is a little high?

I went to get my blood work done 1 day after coming back from a vacation... I ate a lot of fatty stuff and had a few beers could this affect the results? He told me he wanted me to have an other blood test done so first thing on Monday I will do that...

    Different things can cause fatty liver disease:

    weight gain (obesity), fast weight loss, malnourishment,

    diabetes, insulin resistance, alcohol consumption,

    metabolic disorders, high cholesterol/triglyceride levels,

    certain kinds of medication (like steriods), some chemical

    exposure, and there are others.

    It looks like you may have three causes: eatting alot of fat,

    alcohol consumption, and thyroid is a metabolic disorder.

    There is about 5% fat inside a healthy liver. However, as the

    fat builds up inside the liver...it causes pressure inside the liver

    and can damage the liver cells. What starts out as being simple

    fatty liver (which can easily be reversed) can turn into something

    more serious. As the liver cells become damaged, the immune

    system of the body may respond to this and cause inflammation

    to develop inside the liver (hepatitis)...when this takes place, it

    will cause the liver to enlarge in size and takes on a spongy

    texture. This is then know as Steatohepatitis. That is one

    step closer to the irreversible, progressive disease known as

    Cirrhosis where the liver cells die off and form scar tissue

    inside the liver.

    It is best to stop all alcohol consumption and be sure the

    doctor knows any and all medications you are taking...

    including over the counter meds, herbs, herbal teas,

    vitamin, minerals, supplements, eye drops, inhalers,

    prescriptions prescribed by other doctors, etc.

    All liver patients are usually told this.

    No one blood testing is 100% accurate. The doctor

    usually does do more testing to be sure of the results.

    Usually within a certain time period....

    But since you stated you are already diagnosed with

    fat in the liver...it would be best to follow any doctors

    orders he gives you to reverse the problem.

    He may redo the thyroid testing to see if you still

    are elevated above normal. If you are, then he

    may give you medication. It means the thyroid

    is making too much of its hormone... It is known as

    hyperthyroidism. The thyroid controls the rate of

    our metabolism and the liver is the main organ that metabolizes.

    Best wishes

    Many causes leading to fatty liver such as

    :Eating excess calories causes fat to build up in the liver. When the liver does not process and break down fats as it normally should, too much fat will accumulate. People tend to develop fatty liver if they have certain other conditions, such as obesity, diabetes or high triglycerides.

    Alcohol abuse, rapid weight loss and malnutrition may also lead to fatty liver. However, some people develop fatty liver even if they have none of these conditions.

    Add red pepper flakes to your pantry. When eaten early in the day, red pepper lowers the number of food you'll eat later.
