Postby landsurfer » 4 Nov 2014, 6:44pm

I'm 56. Just been diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver. Stunned ! !
I have worked hard to lose weight over the last 5 months. . Lost 4.5 stone. . Cycle at least 80 miles a week
And I end up with a fatty liver . . How do i resolve this. . My GP does not seem bothered. . .

There is a form of corn syrup that goes straight to the liver in the form of fat and the liver can't cope with it.
I think its called HFCS
High Fructose Corn Syrup but it has other names its leading to most Americans having Fatty Livers and also one of their biggest killers

4.5 stone :shock: Presume you've found out more about the condition eg http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/fatty-liver-disease/Pages/Introduction.aspx Seems like the best plan is to continue what you are doing and keep up with the cycling.

We need a medical section on here what with fatty livers, acid reflux, dodgy hearts....... Are cyclists unusually unhealthy or are the unhealthy ones disproportionately attracted to this forum?
