How Advil almost wrecked my life.
Six months ago, an ultrasound found my fatty liver. A blood test confirmed it. I went for another blood test last week and although I'd gained fourteen pounds in six months, my fatty liver was gone. What caused the dramatic improvement from 66 to 38 in blood enzymes was quitting Advil. I had been taking it to six a day for years. I should only have been doing that for six days. I had abused it. My gastroenterologist when he saw I had gained so much weight, told me I was going the wrong way. But the weight was not on my liver. It was not even fat. The medical establishment may be right that overweight people are more likely to have fatty liver, but there are people a lot fatter than me who do not have it. And I got rid of it by gaining weight.
