Hi doctor,

I have fatty liver due to alcohol use because of stress and anxiety. I have right and left-side stomach pain, which wakes me up at night. I frequently have flatulence, nausea, and vertigo even while going for a walk. I am also on anti-depressants like tablet Benzocaine. Finally, my triglycerides are 200 mg/dL, and LDL is 165 mg/dL; due to frequently eating food from outside, my weight is 100 kgs. How do I reduce my symptoms? What steps do I need to take?

Thank you.



Welcome to

The first step to recovery will be undertaking a holistic weight reduction program of body weight. This should include diet planning (with a dietitian for low calorie, high nutrition diet), physical activity (at least 20 minutes of brisk walking daily either on a treadmill or morning walk, and even pet walking).

I would suggest performing a whole body check-up to exclude organic and functional disorders. These include a complete physical examination, USG (ultrasound sonography) abdomen, CT scan (computed tomography) of abdomen and pelvis, blood tests (complete blood count), Liver and renal function tests, lipid function test, ECG (electrocardiogram), and 2D echocardiography. If you have already done these tests, please share the reports. Also, fatty liver is reversible or non-progressive if you diminish or avoid fatty foods and alcohol and eat balanced meals at specific times regulated by a qualified dietitian.

Thanks and regards.
