    Consult a physician. And lose some weight, plus consider whether your fatty liver is a result of a bad diet, including too much alcohol. A doctor, and many online sites, can give you dietary suggestions.

    There are prescription drugs that can help to lower triglycerides, in combination with diet. Alcohol can also cause high triglycerides. If you have a fatty liver as well it does raise the question of whether your alcohol intake is too great.

    This is a good site to learn how to lose weight and get in shape. A key of course is exercise, after your doctor OKs it. Sudden strenuous exercise at your age, when you're obese and possibly with other health issues, can be dangerous.

    BTW, I have blood work every few months, for various health reasons, including high cholesterol, and to monitor my anti-convulsant medication levels (for my epilepsy). Now that you've gotten these results you will also need to have regular blood draws done, as you work on these issues.

    Congrats! I've lost 20 pounds in the last few months. But like your lover my husband also feeds me, as if he's fattening me up for the slaughter (yah think? icon_eek.gif ). An Italian who loves to cook, and sees providing food as a form of love, as do many Italians.

    Therefore I have constant temptation. Left to myself I'd hardly ever eat, I hardly think about food, was slim all my life. Until I lived with my late partner, also Italian, then lost the weight gain after he died, and now I've gotten it back. icon_sad.gif

    My own fault, a matter of poor self-control. When delicious things are placed in front of me (I'm still talking food), by a well-meaning lover who looks wounded if I don't eat them, it's tough to say no. Plus we attend so many social events, also thanks to him, where eating food is part of the program.

    Just yesterday (Tue) we had a gay networking luncheon, where the least fattening item on the prepaid menu I could find was a slab of salmon the size of my forearm. A healthy food, but just too much of it. Yet you hate to appear not to have enjoyed it by leaving half on the plate, as I should have done. And it DID taste good! icon_redface.gif

    But this site has lots of good advice on proper diet & exercise. Just make sure your doctor approves, as I said, before you enter into any strenuous program.
