Dr. Love,Would you mind reading this article, and letting me know just how serious this is? It's like it's written about me. My oncologist did think I have early fatty liver.This article talks about people with low-ish ALT, and no metabolic syndrome, except fat around the waist. It's sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen.http://www.medpagetoday.com/meetingcoverage/ddw/45608Thank you

I am a 32 old male and went to doctor and want a second

I am a 32 old male and went to doctor and want a second opinion i have my lab results, i am very skeptical of what my doctor told me. My enzyme levels are a little high. But can you tell me how high and why? I do not drink a single drop of alcohol during yhe week and only on weekends saturdays i will have about 6-10 beers or mixed drinks. But nothing again for a whole week or sometimes 2. Now my try's are a little high also, do these 2 go hand in hand , and how why is my liver inflamed? I have been drinking for about 10-15 yrs but never for days straight. So i have my lab results and will send them to you.

I have GERD and ibs. My height is 174 cm and weight is 100

I have GERD and ibs. My height is 174 cm and weight is 100 kg. I am 29 years old. I have been tapering off librocol which has benzo in it for quite long time. Now i reached to the stage where i take one pill a day then two days no benzo. It has been 4 days since i started to feel weird anxiety especially since i started my masters classes. Cold feet, and my dialostic pressure is slightly high reaching 95 at times. My tummy is kind of bloated. Can this all be due to the benzo withdrawal? Or is it some other diseases such as diabetes?

Dr. Love, I found 2 articles about how stress affects liver

Dr. Love,I found 2 articles about how stress affects liver enzymes. I've put the shorter one here:https://www.researchgate.net/publication/40769275_Association_Between_Posttraumatic_Stress_Disorder_Following_Myocardial_Infarction_and_Liver_Enzyme_Levels_A_Prospective_StudyThe longer one is actually better. It talks about how stress in Japanese workers increases their enzyme levels. I didn't attach it just because I didn't think you'd want to read it.I'm just about as stressed as you can get. The only problem is all my enzymes aren't raised. Only the ALT is. Do you think stress could be the answer?

Skin rash after acupuncture. What should I do?

I don't know what to do for this. Magnetic acupuncture releases brandykinin or medical hormones or something that should be an anti inflammatory but if it's done wrongly it will do the opposite. My ankle was being treated for a sprain I just wanted the blood circulation that acupuncture gives but he did this and I was not inflammed as soon as he did it. I went inflammed in the ankle and all itchy and red. Do you know what's going on with me here?
