I am diagnosed with fatty liver

The Doctor says, "it is one of those rare syndromes that happen in 1 in 10 or 20 people where the bile levels are elevated. He says it is called Gilbert's Syndrome."

He advised exercise and diet. That was his best advice. But his diagnosis is I feel wrong. Because the problem with me is not really the bile but the super elevated triglycerides. I asked him why the triglycerides are off the limits and he says that he has no answer to that. Hmmm. He does not know. Diet and exercise were his mantra.
This is the specialist Internal medicine doctor.
There is a fatty liver because of alcohol or hepatitis and a fatty liver without alcohol abbreviated NASH.
Looks like I have to treat myself with herbs. I ordered Kutki  herb and I am going to take it for a couple of months and check my triglycerides again.
According to  the article in Wikipedia, whose estimates could be dubious, people with NASH have 1 in 5 chances of developing cirrhosis. I do not want to get into those cirrhosis bunch. Lets see.
No more yummy cheese.......
