abnormal cat scan

I am 24 and have had a cat scan for a kidney stone problem.  ON the scan it said, mild fatty liver signs, hypodensities,and mild  periportal edema.  All my labs were within normal limits. I do not have any other outward symptoms except chronic diarrhea issues related to IBS since I was young.  I'm getting a test to rule out hep C.  Any advice?

Did you have a colonoscopy done for the chronic diarrhea? Curious as to whether or not it's simply IBS or a more serious IBD like UC or Crohn's.

yes, colonoscopy at 16, very sensitive to milk products and anxiety over when the bowels will start acting up at work, school, etc. No other symptoms of nausea, etc.

Certainly the periportal edema will get the doctors attention and also if the hypodensities are focal. Any number of things can be considered but given that you already show signs of a fatty liver, steatohepatitis comes to mind. Not sure if you drink but this can also be caused through a dietary path as well. This will likely be reflected in your blood work if it's been recently done.

it's interesting, the blood work is normal. All liver tests are fine. this would never have been found except on the CT scan.  how many others are walking around with a fatty liver at 24 years old?  Yes, drink sometimes, not excessive, but have had binges.

I forgot to say that the cholesterol, lipids were not ever done due to my age I'm sure.
