    I am a 24 year old female. For the last 4 days, I have been on a Daniel's fast but my urine has a sweet smell for the last 36 hours. I also have a mass in my liver and am having pain on my right upper section of my abdomen that radiates to the back. Should I be concerned?

    Ive had a number of left knee issues associated with the Lateral Meniscus, and in 7 operations Ive had a Menaflex and a Allograft of the LM. Through all this Ive developed arthritis in the Lateral Compartment and have been taking Diclofenic now for approx 2 years 2 tablets of 50mg 2 x per day. My Question is can taking Diclofenic affect kidney or Liver Function because during a recent medical Ive had raised Creatine Levels? Its been commented by a Doctor friend that a side effect can be organ damage to the Kidneys and Liver and if so is there an alternative to Doclofenic thats works but doesnt cause the same issues?

    Hi, I've always had extremely heavy and regular on time periods. I got mono a month ago at the same time as my period and developed a secondary infection on my throat and liver too. Since I developed mono I've been bleeding everyday, especially during sexual activity. I have sharp pains ranging from my hips to my uterus/cervix (sometimes sex can hurt depending on the position) and its getting frustrating because I'm spending so much money on tampons and pads. Could it be that it's from my liver and spleen being swollen or is it something else? I'd be grateful for any advice I can get on this as my doctor keeps telling me to wait another week and make another appointment every week.

    I'm 39 & have always suffered with extremely painful periods.Before having children I had a prolapsed womb which was corrected with a hodge pessary. Over the past 4 years my periods are regular-ish,I get warning pains 7 days before & feel nausious within 12-24 hours before it starts, it is extremely heavy to the point I cannot go out or barely stand without flooding with huge stips of my lining coming out(looks like liver). Its agonising .Plus a week after I stop, I start spotting for a few days with more abdo pain, although not as severe.I also suffer night sweats & day sweats so wonder if it is all linked: hormonally?

    I have been diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver disease but I am not fat. I have never been a drinker, the most I have consumed in alcohol in the last 20 years is what most people consume in a month. I don't smoke either and I am within my BMI. Any ideas why this has occurred?

    My husband has severe diarrhoea with constant pain in the stomach and when he eats he is running to the loo with great urgency. He had gallstones and had his gall bladder removed and was told that his pains would all go. He is still in severe pain, doesnt want to eat as even a small pot of jelly has him running to the loo. Hes having a colonoscopy in july, but what can he do to alleviate the pain? His liver is damaged and all the painkillers will not help his liver mend. If anyone knows what it is he has i would be grateful for suggestions as the docs at 2 hospitals have no ideas yet. Thanks

    I take keppra for my epilepsy. My liver tests were abnormal, I do enjoy wine everyday . Does keppra effect your liver. Some say not through the liver goes through the kidneys others say vice versa. Who do I believe? Please help.

    Talk to your doctor! They do regular tests on your liver function precisely because of this issue. If they see problems, they will try another medication. You will not know if you are controlling your diabetes by diet alone unless you test - and I mean four times a day at least, if you are not taking any medication. You need to know that they are not going above a certain amount because if they are, your body is being damaged by the high levels. You will end up with far more complications than liver problems. Please start with your doctor, they may tell you to eat too many carbs, but at least they will be able to monitor your liver function. Good luck

    Who thinks it's a liver problem? I heard it from 1 doctor and had 6 months liver treatment, after which it stopped spreading for 7 years. Unfortunately it started growing again together with other problems like heavy periods, bleeding between periods, tiredness, low libido, acne, itchy skin. I feel in my guts that it's liver, but my blood tests show only low level of leukocytes. 7 years ago liver tests results were normal as well but on the scan it was quite fatty. Or maybe some hormones are to blame?

    Hi, Vitiligo is an auto immune system disorder, nothing to do with your liver. Vitiligo is not physically harmful in anyway at all. Because you have vitiligo this certinelly does not mean you have any issues with any other organ other than your skin! I've had vitiligo for about 4 years and it appeared for nowhere! It's hard to deal with especially when it's on your face but you can cover itif it's bothers you too much! I tried a cream called Tacrolimus this was prescribed and the pigment returned on my face but did not clear the vitiligo in any other area!

    If you are getting constipated it could result in poisoning your blood surely ? In the long term surely the body is under strain ...i.e kidneys and liver as a sufferer constipation causes back pain, anxiety, insomina , liver pain and a general ill feeling that rsults in me feeling depressed. Long terms effects are not only physical but can be intellectual, emotional and social. why isnt this condition being taken seriously by anyone ? why is it seen as not being damaging in the long term? i dont get it either

    Hello, I have the condition known as fatty liver. My Serum Gamma GT levels was 75iu/L on 2.02.2009, 81iu/L on 21.12.09 and 106iu/L on 14.06.10. My GP said the ultrasound scan on my liver carried out on 14.01.10 was normal and since then no actions were carried out. I'm worried that I may contract liver dieases if these levels keep on increasing. I am an occassional drinker, drink very rarely indeed and a non-smoker. Please advise. Many thanks

    Hey man, I'm 26 and I saw a dermatologist in Thailand about the same spots. He referred to them as Tyson glands aka fordyce spots. His advice was leave them alone! Try taking vitamin A tablets (watch your liver, as it can do damage to it) if worried about your liver, have a LFT (liver function test). But your still young so it shouldn't be a problem. Hope this helps! Trust me, I worrird for yrs about it!! untill I saw him and he was smart and had seen all kinds of stuff in the past and we are normal and heaps of guys are living with it. Peace'

    I have had thrush for 5 nearly 5 months now, had all my STI's and STD's tests done. All came back negative, and have the canesten pill twice, the pessary 3 times. Plus the cream. Nothings worked, No vaginosis. Had scans no problems with my ovaries, kidneys, liver etc. But i have alot of pain around my pubis area inside of my body. Can hardly walk because the pain is so bad, and when i went for a swab, i was in alot of pain when she did it. Just wondered what the pain was?

    I had the same problem, especially during my time of the month. Go to a pharmacy or a health store and get "dessicated liver" capsules. I found the ones in a gel capsule with the dried liver powder inside work best - you may have to find those on the internet. Solved the problem almost immediately - it was amazing to me! A woman Doctor gave me this information years ago.

    It's your liver fix you're liver and you will fix the bad breath

    This sounds like gall stones are partially blocking your bile duct and stopping the normal flow of bile, so your poo is paler or yellowish, your urine would also be darker than usual. Feeling tired and also some itching and nausea are also symptoms because your liver function is poor. This can also be caused by the gallstones: the bile can't get out of the bile duct properly so causes back pressure in the liver, which reabsorbs some of chemicals from the bile into the liver and then into the blood stream. I suffered badly from this - it is called cholestasis - until my gall bladder was removed. But beware, the op is not a cure all and I still. Ate stones that partly block my bile duct now and then and have had to have several procedures and medication to stay well. Go back to your Gp and insist on a referral to a gastroenterologist at your hospital for scans and blood tests and a proper consultation.

    Hello all! Have had psoriasis for the last year and a half and got it out of the blue! no one else in my family suffers or has any form of it. after doing lots of research on - line and reading books and speaking to professionals in alternative health it seems that a main route cause of psoriasis is an over-load of toxins in your liver and causes your liver to get stressed when it has to break down the toxins. so the frist step i took was to detox my liver, i did this by taking a herbal tea called flo essence at nighttime. Along with the rest of my research a doctor in america called Dr.Connolly recommended in his books that you should give up all pork products! I did this and hey presto my psoriasis cleared up on my back. To help then keep my skin hydrated and healthy looking i take Udo's capsules with my food every day. I have not looked back since! :)

    Hi I have been diagnosed with a fungal infection on my toe nails. I had been on a course of strong medication for 3 months but the problem has not cleared up and they want me to carry on for at least another six months. I know the drug has a possible side effect of liver damage and was wondering if there are any less extreme methods of treatment. I don't want to loose my toe nails but I also don't want to damage my liver!!

    Hello, I am 18 and when i was 17 i contracted the Genital warts virus. I did no know until there was tiny lump around my anus and vagina. I went to my local GUM clinic and they froze them three times, they are only small and the freezing did not work. They then put me on the Aldara cream which they rarely give out. I have a liver problem which is caused by my immune system attacking my liver so i am on tablets to supress my immune system. the cream however causes my immune system to react with the warts to fight them. I have now stopped the treatment myself after being on the thrid months treatment and not seeing any differences. It has killed me emotionally and physically and my sex life is non existent. I have had them for 6 months and do not know who i caught them off. I wilkl be asking my liver doctor if he has any suggestions as to what i can do but otherwise than that i will have them for life as my body is under so much stress already.
