Fatty Liver
About 5 years ago I had Interferon treatment and my viral load has been non detecable ever since. About 6 months ago I started to have some pressure on my right side, So went for ultra sound. The doctor said my liver looked normal but there was quite a bit of fat. He said that should not cause a problem but would like to get other opinions. I am not over weight and I do not eat fatty foods. I do have a glass of wine a couple of times a week. Also i started to take Milkthistle again and the pressure has gone away

Any chance you were a genotye 3? We g3s are more likely to develop this. I have almost the same situation as you - 5 years SVR and diagnosed with steatosis one year post-tx. Hard to gauge progression with an ultrasound I'm told, but my gastro didn't seem too concerned since I don't show any signs of inflammation. He is currently involved in a large study on a steatosis reducing drug (there are many being tested I'm told). I didn't qualify for his study because I wasn't overweight enough or showing any markers for inflammation.
