Fatty Liver

Just had my annual diabetic panel test. It was fast. Hi-Precision Mactan, it turns out, doesn’t have plenty of patients early in the morning. After 5 minutes, I was through with everything except for 2H P-Prandial Blood Sugar, which needs to be taken 2 hours after your last meal (you definitely need to eat after you fast the for 12 hours).

Results? Everything is within range, save for one thing: SGPT.

The range is from 4 to 41. I have 46. Last year, it was only 39.

Bottom line: I am a perfect candidate for fatty liver disease. If not, I’m already there.

The result was, of course, disappointing. However, it wasn’t completely shocking. Early this year, I had my yearly lower body ultrasound, and the doctor already told me I was showing signs of fatty liver. I didn’t listen. I know neither did my mom as we shared the same diagnosis.

I could blame this to eating fatty food or sedentary lifestyle. In the end, it’s my fault.

Fortunately, there are still a lot of things I can do. I’ll be meeting my doctor soon, but in the meantime, I have to get on juice fasts ASAP. I believe I also need to do liver flushing. I need to try the latter first before I tell you if it works or how to do it.

I’m still very thankful, though. I’m relishing the fact that despite my unhealthy lifestyle, I don’t have diabetes or kidney disease yet. I am not battling any type of infection right now.
