Doc says watch my diet
I went to the lab the next morning for an ultrasound and blood test. The next day, the doctor's nurse told me that the liver, and aorta were all "within tolerances". I still have those pesky gallstones.
But the doctor told me to avoid fatty foods and lose more weight, because I could still develop cirrhosis... not to mention the gall stone issue. I guess I was assuming that my gastric bypass would let me eat more fatty foods like steak and hot dogs and such but I am wrong.
I admit, i was kind of bummed out. But my doctor has never been one to mince words. He's always been concerned with my health and tells it like it is. It's a wake up call.

Interesting! I recently went out with a guy who was trying to calculate how many carbs were in everything because he was trying to lose weight and correct cirrhosis of the liver due to diet. I thought he was making that up. Oops.
I'm impressed you can tolerate steak, but perhaps only once a month or a smaller one is in order. So glad you found out before it became a threatening issue!

I'm sure Vitalady sells it, and I find it easily on line.
