Hi, I am dr.Iqtidar and will try my best to answer your question. It is unlikely to be menopause as you don't have irregular periods. Nausea and feeling hot could be a kidney infection or due to hyperactive thyroid. Nausea could also be due to fatty liver itself. I think you need a complete blood profile to check there's no infection and also thyroid function tests to check for your thyroid status as a hyperactive thyroid can cause sweating, palpitations, anxiety and even nausea.
I hope this answer helps. If you are satisfied with my answer please leave me a positive rating.
do any of the conditions you suggest only happen after eating? I had alot of blood work done in April this year and all came back normal, apart from the fatty liver. I'm concerned about more serious conditions like cancer. Also is it possible anxiety could be the reasons
I notice that you have relisted the question.
To some extent, someone with any condition that can cause nausea may notice a worsening of the nausea after eating. Similarly, someone with nausea from any condition may find that avoiding oral intake may ease nausea for a time, although prolonged avoidance of oral intake can obviously only be maintained for a limited period of time.
However, there is a common condition that can cause temperature elevation and that would specifically be exacerbated by oral intake, which is gallbladder disease. So, in addition to the evaluation noted by the other expert, it would be appropriate to evaluate the gallbladder. The first test would be an ultrasound, and it may also require a hepatobiliary scan.
hi, thanks. If I may just ask, I'm very worried about cirrhosis as in addition to the fatty liver I ff
I also noticed dark urine, along with fatty liver and nausea, high temperature in ea
It is very unlikely that cirrhosis is present at your age. Any condition that can lead to cirrhosis would usually take more years to develop into cirrhosis. In addition, the blood tests that you had done would usually indicate a greater amount of liver dysfunction if cirrhosis is present.
The symptoms that you describe could be related to the fatty liver and inflammation of the liver associated with the fatty liver, and this would be far more likely than cirrhosis of the liver. So, liver disease is possible, but cirrhosis is unlikely.
thanks. Is it possible for my GP to have correctly diagnosed fatty liver after just one bloed test, everything I see on line seems to say more than one set of bloods needs to be done to diagnose fatty liver but my GP only did one?
A blood test can suggest a fatty liver, but I typically only diagnose a fatty liver based on an imaging study.
is it possible being on such a high dose of amitryptiline for years could cause cirrhosis?
Liver damage and hepatitis is one of the rare reported possible side effects to amitriptyline. It is not reported to cause cirrhosis, although theoretically, any condition that causes hepatitis that continues for a sufficient period of time could lead to cirrhosis.
so I have read that in chronic hepititis for along time symptoms may not be present and also that liver enzymes may not show alot of dysfunction, so in theory could chronic hepatitis be taken as fatty liver? I just worry as I have dark urine, fever,a spider angioma on my chest
These are not mutually exclusive, as some people with a fatty liver can also have chronic hepatitis from the fatty liver, so there is not an issue of whether one can be taken as the other, since both can be present.
have fatty liver and been on high dose of amitryptiline for many years, do you think I should be worried about cirhosis? Sorry for all the extra questions
I answered that question above.
last question,is it possible for cirrhosis in an advanced state to develops within 4 months from the liver function test that only indicated fatty liver? I will leave excellent crating and tip.
Generally no, as it takes many years for cirrhosis to develop, which is why it is also very unlikely that cirrhosis could be present at your age. Obviously, if someone has fatty liver with chronic hepatitis for years and there has not been any evaluation, and then 4 months before it is destined to finally develop cirrhosis, an evaluation is done that shows the fatty liver with chronic hepatitis, it would appear that there was only 4 months between the diagnosis of fatty liver and the development of cirrhosis.
