My doc said I have non-alcoholic fatty liver. I'm not convinced. I drank like farking Bukowski for years, and he knows it. I don't know why they'd think it's non-alcoholic, other than I am not currently drinking. Makes me wonder about this study.

Are you overweight and/or diabetic?

Basically, overweight people tend to get fatty liver disease.

I might sound fat, but I'm not diabetic.

My mom constantly says she probably has that because she has dark spots on her hands. Over 55, does tons of yard work and grows a vegetable garden every year, and NEVER wears sunscreen. But those spots are totally not from the sun, they're definitely liver spots.

Sigh.

And then she talks about how sad she is that she has old lady hands now, but won't even think of wearing sunscreen. There are products out there to help lighten those spots but it ain't happenin' if she won't use sunscreen.

/then again, I never wear it either
//only had two sunburns ever
///one of which was when I was white as a sheet of paper and wore a tank top to Disney World in the middle of summer with no sunscreen, and it turned to a tan by the next day
//olive skin ftw

Yeah, the sugar added to every last thing you eat and drink isn't a factor at all.

Give them enough time, every group's mortality rate rises to 100%. This study simply stopped too soon.

Your family sounds uncomfortably tawny.   I would like to prescribe a regiment of impregnation from gingers and eskimos for the next three generations to clear that up.

If everyone in the U.S. had a liver biopsy I'm willing to bet more than half the population has non-alcoholic fatty liver by now. I'm not overweight and have it. I don't eat that unhealthy either.  I think surgary drinks and over the counter pain meds have something to do with it.  Maybe something in the water we drink.

I was willing to consider your remark until the 3rd sentence...and then things took a turn.

Haha,  I knew someone would bite on that last part. I added it because nobody really can pinpoint what is causing fatty liver. I don't eat out a lot or eat fried food. I stay away from high carb meals. I drink 8 or more
glasses of water a day. Maybe it's from my past drinking years ago.

But I will say this. Our water is not clean The majority of pipes that have been laid down in the last century are corroded and breaking. "Main flushing" is a reason your water tastes like chlorinated pool water on certain days. Pollution, humans flushing prescription meds, cleaning agents among other things that get put back into out drinking water. Our water is a commuinty cesspool. http://environment.about.com/od/waterpollution/a/tap_water_probe.htm

This just in.  Fatty liver disease that manifests in a statistically unlikely population is probably fatal.

In other news, you need your liver to live.  Update at 11.
