I hope my life is not coming to a sorrowful end, I was diagnosed with chronic hepatitis B very early 2012. My liver enzymes were within range upon diagnosis and DNA was 5000 iu/ml.
I was adviced against fried, processed, sugar and fatty food, to sum it up I became a vegetarian and embraced Juicing of Carrot, Beet, Brocholi etc.I lived relatively an active life with exercise of four times a week.
I commenced Milk thistle, dandelion root, I repeated DNA test and LFT 6months later DNA:587, ALT 48.My DNA has been fluntuating between 113 and 287 iu/ml and ALT has been 54 at the highest (Last test was Oct 2013).My doctor feel my enzymes and DNA are good and I got confirmation from 2nd opinion (Hepatologist)
Symptoms has been very Yellow urine, fatigue/weakness and body itching, I had taken lot of Chanca piedra and organic coconut oil with multivitamins at various times.
The challenge I have is tremendous and rapid weight loss, its scary how I look as I have lost 12kg, I have lost muscles in my chest and arms and my lower tommy is slightly bulging and bloated with little intake of food its as though my stomach is bigger than my upper limb.I complained to my gastro all she could say was for me increase my food intake and I have been eating well in the past 8weeks yet....
I had Fibros scan done in Feb and the result was (5.8kpa iqr 0.5) I equally had a CT scan in feb and the liver was said to be in normal size.The scan I had last month showed the liver is not inflated.
Has anybody been in this situation before? What can I do? I need honest opinion and guidance please!!!!
