One year ago, I was diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, stage 4 with portal hypertension. The weird part is that my liver function tests are all normal! The only way I found out I had liver disease was because I felt this lump in my abdomen which turned out to be a swollen spleen, later found out liver swollen too. I've been told of course to lose weight which I have been working on, 30 lbs so far but I am having some problems with anemia and low white blood cells. They keep fluctuating and dropping lower and lower. I've been told the liver can heal, then I've been told that at stage 4 it cannot. Doctor says the portal hypertension is irreversible, but no comments on the liver itself. How did this happen with completely normal liver function? Does anyone else have this problem? I just want to know what else to do to better my health. Thank you.
