My wife test showed a Persisitently deranged LFTs(minimally).Abdominal liver scan echoes. Negative for HBsAg,HIV antibodies.
Details of the result is as follows:

MACROSCOPY:
Specimen consists of three strands of grayish white tissues, processed whole 1k.

MICROSCOPY :
Histological sections show hepatic tissue with preserved lobular architecture. The hepatocytes show degenerative and regenerative changes with approximately 30% of the hepatocytes showing steatosis. Few pockets of lymphocytes aggregates are seen within the lobules. The portal triads(about three) also infammatory cells infiltration.

Conclusion: MODERATE STEATOHEPATITIS

Fatty Liver - moderate
(FAH-tee LIH-vur)

The buildup of fat in liver cells. The most common cause is alcoholism. Other causes include obesity, diabetes, and pregnancy. Also called steatosis.

And also HEP C can be the causefor fatty liver. My case.
I've seen she tested for HEP B/HIV but not HCV?

I have also been diagnosed with steatohepatitis. My primary care physician is treating me  along with my diabetes and general care. My question is:" Is this suffice to have her as the one treating me for this?" She has already told me that steatohepatitis can be reversed with diet and exercise,so of course I'm doing this. I also read that zetia can cause this so I stopped taking it with her ok.anyone else hear of this?(about Zetia?) I also take lipitor and cozaar,amlodipine and imdur and lantus and novolog insulins. I also see a cardiologist regularly for heart disease.
