Hi doctor,

I am suffering from a pancreas problem, and I did a computed tomography (CT) scan which detected that the pancreas appears to have increased in size & shows heterogeneous enhancement with pancreatic fat standing & fluid collection. No parenchymal calcification or duct dilatation. Please advise.



Welcome to

I have gone through your reports on ultrasound (USG) (attachment removed for protecting patient 's identity). It says you have a grade one fatty liver. If both these tests are normal, I suggest you check your diet or take a diet. It would help to revert the changes soon. Some food plans are:

  • Whole grains are very beneficial to consume. These can be in the form of whole wheat bread or cereal, brown rice, whole grain pasta, grains such as whole oats, wild rice, rye, oatmeal, and corn are also beneficial and can be taken if suits your food pattern.
  • Fruits and vegetables should be a significant part of any diet to help recover from liver disease. They are full of essential nutrients and are easy to digest.
  • Healthy proteins in the form of low-fat milk and dairy products, along with lean meats, beans, eggs, and soy products, can also be a part of a healthy liver diet.
  • Avoid red meat.
  • Try to switch over to a vegetarian diet.
  • Take antioxidants daily.
  • Silibinin, also known as silybin, is the major active constituent of silymarin, a standardized milk thistle seeds standardized extract containing a mixture of flavonolignans consisting of silibinin and isosilibinin. It should be taken two times a day. It is a very potent liver rejuvenator and effective in maintaining a healthy liver.
  • Ayurvedic tablet Liv- 52 (caparris spinosa and solanum nigram) should be taken once daily.

Hope I was helpful.

Kindly follow up for further assistance.

Thank you.
